In the middle of a blizzard here (amongst everything else) so thought would run some numbers.

Have 2 favorite side-by-side pet handloads.

.4515, 200g at 1250 fps(low 44 mag ballistics level).

THEN,
.476, 406g at a slow 800fps.

In a 50oz single action (with great grip design and balance) both Loads are between 14-15 lbs of recoil energy (plus 16-17 fps velocity) using a pretty slow 'safe' powder, this is maximum level had ever allowed my teenage son to use, when younger.

-----------------
Now on the other hand, a full house 44 mag 240g load would be about 17 lbs recoil energy with 18 fps recoil velocity, using Hornady factory ammo.

Then comparing a full house factory 454 Hornady 300g load, it is near a very significant 40 lbs recoil at 28 fps !!

Big difference!

----------------
Looking at fairly mild 45 loads:

45 colt standard mild loads (for me) are what? .... 8-9lbs recoil in same heavy gun. What would it be in a lighter Vaquero? ....seems like compared to my pet loads, am thinking probably not a huge difference.
