    45 Colt and OE 1.5

    Any problems shooting OE 1.5 in my Uberti Schofield in 45 Colt?

    No probably not, but 2f would work better.
    Long range rules, the rest drool.

    I though a 45 Colt ctg wouldn’t fit in a Schofield chamber.

    1.5 fg is for shotguns or large bore rifles with long (longer than a handgun) barrels.

    Try to find some O.E. In 2 fg or 3 fg. I have used both in my Ruger New Vaquero’s I like the O.E.2 fg the best for accuracy in rifle & revolvers but the 3 fg is a little faster in the revolvers.

    It's a Schofield replica but chambered in 45 Colt actually could shoot either cartridge if I could find some Schofield brass. I'll probably have to order some 2F if I stay with BP for the Schofield. I did load some up with the 1.5F and can get 30gn in the case w/just a slight compression with no wad and 1 or 2/16ths compression with a .30wad. Made up 10 of each to go try.
