Getting saddled up for some range time today and packing a number of revolvers:
  1. Ruger Single Seven 327 Federal
  2. Ruger Redhawk 45 Colt Tier II-III
  3. Uberti El Patron Belleza 45 Colt Tier I
  4. Ruger Match Champion 357 Mag
  5. Uberti Outlaw 44-40
  6. Ruger Anniversary Flat Top Blackhawk 44 Mag
  7. Ruger Flatop Blackhawk 41 mag
  8. S&W 625 PC 45 ACP

    On the Redhawk I only have 12 test rounds of a load I lightened up after pressure signs with stuck cases in the former load. This "Ruger-only" load is now 19 grains of IMR4227 and a 250 grain lead SWC.

Got the forcing cone and throats corrected on that Redhawk and now see no problems with pressure signs and have done fine exploring the really heavy 45 Colt loads. Cases eject much more easily. The lesson is that tight throats increase pressure by a bunch.

I still have some 45 colt ammo and some reloads (for component pulls) I’m trying to offload.
