    Ruger Old Army and 45 ACP

    I just purchased a 45 ACP conversion cylinder for my ROA and was looking for lead bullet load data for 45ACP reloads in the ROA.

    It's a given I will not be using jacketed bullets or hot loads in this pistol

    I was looking to the 45 long colt and 45 Schofeild load data as a place to start.

    Any suggestions?

    Here is data on loading the .45 ACP cylinder. Do NOT look at .45 Colt or .45 Schoffield data. Those cases are much larger than the ACP case.
