Colt [ruger Tc Only

This loading data was developed in response to shooters' request for more powerful loads for use in Ruger and T/C handguns.

These loads develop the same pressures as +P .45 ACP loads. Despite occasional recommendations by other sources, do not handload .45 Colt ammo to .44 Magnum pressure levels. The .45 Colt brass is not as strong as .44 Magnum cases.

These loads must not be used in older, weaker firearms but should prove entirely satisfactory in the firearms for which they are intended.
