      Been shooting a KIRST .45Colt conversion cylinder in my r.o.a. for several years.... w231 and of late   6grains of TiteGroup behind a 255rnfp home cast .
 (I scored a 4 pound jug of titegroup) from local CABELAS...
  cylinder I chose was  stainless as I on rare occasion shoot b.p. in the 45 cases.
   Again     money well spent.   
as a side note,the roa in .45   shoots as well as my omsbh shooting  .44 specials.

Holy black in .45 colt cartridges

Greetings  AL,  Thank you for the welcome,but I have been around for a couple years.......
yes,  ROA  is  RUGER OLD ARMY
OMSBH  is OLD MODEL SUPER BLACKHAWK.

I shoot 35 grains Goex 3F,topped with a home cast/wheel weights/ .45  cal.  LEE 255+ Round Nose Flat Point projectile.sized to  .453''
smokey and feels pretty stout..as accurate as .44 specials in the SBH.
smokeless in .45,i am using 6.0-6.3 gr.  titeGroup....
I just traded the omsbh to my shooting partner for a like new  Winchester 88 in rare .284 Winchester.
I acquired the omsbh that had a cyl. of full house norma 44mag thru it and mabe a dozen 44 specials.   ser# 4120.     had it several years.... wanted that model 88 for about 12 years.... friend finally agreed to trade.....heck,i still shoot the .44 AND have a new rifle too......life is good.
