Guy, very good read. At one point in time I had a Ruger Vaquero (old model) in .45 Colt. Very pleasant to shoot, accurate with the 255 grain Semi Wadcutter and in a pinch it could served very well for personal defense. Your article brought back memories.

Thanks! It's a great old cartridge. Now and again I'll load up something with more punch for my youngest son's 45 Ruger Blackhawk. :grin:

I have a Blackhawk Bisley (the thick one) as well as a 45 Colt Rossi rifle. The 335gr WFNGC hand loads will get your attention in both.
