Blackhawk Bisley

Don't knock the 45 Colt, it can be loaded pretty hot!!!
These days my old *** can’t take too much of the fire breathing nitro loads. Majority of 357 or 44 mag are special loads. So loading 45 colt will mostly be colt loads and not Ruger loads.
Though I always keep some flame shooting 357 and 44 magnums with me when going to the range for that guy who likes to do mag dumps with their 12 inch muzzle braked AR 2 feet beside me.
 
Drool. Dang I like that revolver. You can load 45 Cowboy Special for that.

That’s my plan Highboy. I only have a SBH in 44 mag and this Bisley for Ruger revolvers. All my other revolvers are S&W. I always thought none other than S&W revolvers fit my hand well until I grabbed onto this Bisley and it feels like it was made just for me. I hope it’s as well when I get to shooting it.

Don’t forget that you can also load .45 Schofield as well as .45 Cowboy Special for reduced power rounds in that revolver. They’ll save your wrists.
 
Was able to get to range this morning and I think this Ruger Bisley has become my favourite revolver. Once I got the rear sight dialed in how I like it I was making 1-1/2” groups at 25 yards off of a rest using factory 45 Colt 250 grain plated rounds. Shooting these in this Bisley were like shooting 38 special wad cutters out of my S&W 6 inch 28.
I’m really looking forward to making some mild to maybe wild loads for the 45 Colt cartridge.
