Will my mid power taper crimp .45 ACP loads work reliably in a revolver?
The difference is in how the action works. An auto magazine doesn't move, so you don't have to worry about inertia walks the bullets out of the case. A revolver cylinder reacts with the recoil, and even a mid range load can cause bullets to walk simply due to their mass.Will my mid power taper crimp .45 ACP loads work reliably in a revolver?
Load 6 and try em out. Take a black magic marker and run it around the case mouth/bullet junction. As you fire each round....open the cylinder and see if you're getting any creep on each round.Will my mid power taper crimp .45 ACP loads work reliably in a revolver?
If it didn't you would be S.O.L., no place to put a clip.Moon clips. Mostly.
Sometimes they will headspace on the case mouth, but not always. I ordered my Freedom Arms 83 with a 45 ACP Cylinder and it headspaces off the case mouth. ]
Nope.If the .45 ACP case is loaded with a 250-260 gr. LRNFP at a moderate pace (say 700 f/s), and the O.A.L. adjusted correctly, would the (half)moon clips be necessary? Unless they're loaded so hot that they stick to the cylinder walls, shouldn't ejection by gravity be fairly assured?
