Holy crap! This stuff is powerful and the recoil confirms it. Before taking a trip to grizzly country, I shot a few rounds of this in my Ruger Vaquero (old) with a 7 1/2" barrel. This stuff kicks hard! In fact, it hurts to shoot it but not just because of the kick itself but because the Vaquero trigger guard would slam into my middle finger. Ouch! No matter how tightly I held the gun (with two hands) it felt like getting my middle finger hit with a hammer. But I have very large thick fingers so that may be part of the problem. I also have very large wrists so, other than the slamming of the trigger guard into my middle finger, it's controllable. This is not ammo that I would want to shoot in that gun for fun. But that's not what it's for, of course. It's for protection in bear country and I wouldn't be worrying about pain in a finger if a bear was charging. However, I may see if I can rig up something to cover the back of the trigger guard to soften the blow. Another problem, and this is with the gun, not the ammunition, is that Vaquero's are light so felt recoil is harder. That wouldn't be as much of an issue with a heavier gun. In addition, the grip on a Vaquero is small. With a larger grip and, especially, one with a grip of some type of rubber or a similar soft material, the problem would be greatly reduced.
This ammo lives up to Buffalo Bore's saying of, "Strictly Business."
Do not buy the 45LC P for any weapon that is not specifically listed in the ad. I bought it for an 1873 Winchester because I wanted higher veloceties for hunting and it was not listed as "NOT intended for" as it does for the new model Vaquero. NOTE: these bullets are engineered to be longer than the normal 45 LC specifically so that they are not used in the 1873 and others like it. When contacting bullet manufacturer they told me that they did it that way to keep the uneducated from using it. Be educated. Use ONLY in those weapons specifically identified in the ad.
Very good grouping and has a kick. My circuit judge loves it.
Easily shoots through 10" of oak. Recoil is stout, but shootable out of my Super Blackhawk Hunter. There isn't a game animal that this couldn't put down. NO DOUBT.
I drew a
Montana Moose Tag this year for unit 380. I took this bull
at 60 yds with a 4" Ruger Redhawk and your 325 gr. hardcast .45 Colt ammo.

Great round. Manageable recoil plus the 325gr and 260gr have same point of impact from my Blackhawk.
