My apologies. I don’t think i’ve bought any factory loaded cartridges (other than rimfire) in about 10 years, and I tend to think about handloaded rounds rather than factory.
I should have specified.
The point I was trying to convey is that some .45 colt rounds (if they’re handloaded for specific revolvers) have the potential to break a schofield. Also that the .45 schofield (which is what the original firearm was chambered for) is a very light .45 calibre cartridge, similar to the .45 acp, that should be considered a very capable defensive round without being to potent in regards to recoil.
I’ve already apologised for not realising that this version shoots the .45 colt, not the .45 schofield.
No need. I just wanted to make sure no one misconstrued, per industry standards, the Colt round is not even near the .44 mag. I know guys hot rod it. That is the exception is all. And really, if you want a .44 mag, shoot a .44 mag. Or a Casull. But hot loads are fine in the Rugers and a few others so long as you don't have any other guns they might accidentally get loaded into.
