The silvertips are loaded a little hotter than some of the cowboy loads. Corbon makes some pretty hot hunting loads in .45 Colt. They do a 300gr JSP at a stated 1300fps & 1126ftlbs and a 265gr bonded core HP at a stated 1350fps & 1073ftlbs. I wouldnt want to shoot them out of any pistol though. Ive never found any factory ammo that performed between the Corbons and Silvertips. Good Luck.
