Ruger only 45 ACP revolver loads ???

as I've been paging through my reload manuals, I've noticed all the 45 ACP loads ( & to an extent, even the Autorim loads ) are all using typical semi auto powders... I'd like to find some load data that will give me some +P performance out of my converted Blackhawk... in new Autorim cases...

I'd think from past loading experience, H-110 & Lil Gun would be decent powders to use in the revolvers but I can't find any data... The S&W 625 aught to be able to handle at least warm loads, & is common enough, that there may be some revolver only loads out there... anyone have a source ???

If you have a 45colt/acp revolver use the 45 colt for heavy loads. if a 45 acp revolver taffin's loads are safe just be CAREFUL they only go in a revolver.

Note: In a revolver, .45 ACP can be treated as .45AR. No difference. Just keep them out of semi-autos of course.

Magnumwheelman;
I guess you do know that a standard Ruger Blackhawk Convertible will not accept .45 Auto Rim Cases? The rim is too thick. There are certain pistolsmiths that will alter your .45 ACP cylinder to allow .45 Auto rim cases (as well as the original .45 ACP cases) but not "as issued"...

I have a Bisley .45 Colt/.45 ACP convertible and it is totally practical with both the ACP and Colt cartridges. I treasure mine...

actually my gun was built as a 45 Auto Rim, with an extra cylinder for 45 Colt
