No pics yet but today I picked up a new short 4 3/4 Blackhawk stainless in 45 Colt. I was motivated by the fact they are no longer offered in the catalog and my dealer said he may see no more new ones.
I want a Ruger SS Bisley .45 Colt/.45 ACP convertible so bad, but I just bought another Blackhawk SS 357 that came in my local pusher's store and could not pass up getting another. Now I have a matching pair!
They shouldn't be any different. I have come across a few grip frames that were slightly different in the backstrap near the ears, but the for the rest of them, they are all very close to being the same. There are a few random new XR3-REDs (the ones with locks) that have crooked grip locator pin holes though...
Anybody got a load for the 45 Colt Ruger Blackhawk using Nosler 250 grain JHP, .451, IMR 800X, Remington 2 1/2 large pistol primers ?? I'm looking for about 1000-1100 fps. I lost all of my reloading books in a recent move. Thanks.
