As usual we test fire our published velocities from real world over-the-counter firearms, so the customer will have an idea what this ammunition is doing in the real world, where it matters and not in a laboratory. We feel that publishing velocities fired from very long laboratory test barrels, gives false high velocity readings and is misleading to the customer. See our velocities below:
➤ 1533 fps - Freedom Arms Mod. 97 5 ¼ inch barrel
➤ 1505 fps - Ruger pre 2005 large frame Vaquero 5 ½ inch barrel
➤ 1855 fps - Marlin Mod. 1894 Cowboy 20 inch barrel
This, long-for-weight, Barnes X style bullet will penetrate deeply for such a light weight bullet and therefore this load is suitable for big game from whitetail deer through elk.
Barnes placed the crimp groove in a location that affords a short cartridge OAL; therefore the loaded cartridge will fit into the short cylinder of the FA mod. 97. The OAL for this cartridge is 1.572 inch. Which means you can chamber it in revolvers that are too weak to fire +P loads; so, use this ammo ONLY in ALL LARGE FRAME RUGERS, (i.e. Black Hawks, all Red Hawk iterations chambered in 454 Casull and 45 Colt and pre 2005 Vaqueros).
These Heavy .45 Colt +P loads are NOT intended for the New Model Vaquero (small frame). Please read the following linked techinical article to know more about Ruger revolvers and 45 Colt +P ammo.
This ammo can also be used in the Colt Anaconda, all FA revolvers chambered in 454 Casull and 45 Colt and Dan Wesson revolvers, Winchester and Marlin mod. 1894, all falling block actions made of modern steel, TC Encore, all Henry Lever Actions and the Handi Rifle.
These loads are also safe in all modern Model 1892 leverguns as well as all Winchester & Marlin 1894's. Please read the following linked technical article to know more about 1892s and all variants or copies of the 1892.
