This ammunition is loaded to +P pressures and is for use ONLY in Ruger Blackhawks and OLD MODEL Vaqueros, and Thompson Center Contenders. This ammunition is not for use in any other handguns, including Ruger's recently introduced New Vaquero, which is smaller than the original and Ruger warns is not designed to withstand pressures that exceed industry maximums for the original .45 Colt, which this ammunition does. Use of this ammunition in firearms other than those specified as appropriate could result in damage to the firearm and injury or death to the user and bystanders.
Are you tired of spending big money on handgun ammunition that you can?t return and then hoping that it feeds and functions correctly in your gun, your gun likes it well enough to shoot tight groups, it produces tolerable recoil, and it shoots to point of aim?
We all know guns usually shoot some ammo well and other ammo poorly. Typically shooters have to buy at least 20 rounds of a single type of usually pricey ammunition, only to often discover within firing the first few rounds that their gun doesn't like that particular load. Most of that ammo then winds up gathering dust, and your money goes down the drain.
But now you can find accurate and powerful ammo for a fraction of the money you?d spend buying numerous full boxes of different ammunition. Our innovative, economical sample-pack system lets you test custom-grade ammo manufactured by Littlestone Ammunition. For less than you?d pay for a single box of most decent ammo, you can test up to five of Littlestone Ammunition's different custom loadings of various bullet types and weights.
Try some of Littlestone Ammunition?s 20- or 50-round sample packs today. Then, when you find the load you?re looking for, you can buy a supply knowing it will do the job for you instead of just hoping it will.
This is a 20-round sample pack loaded with two bullets:
Ten rounds loaded with 300-grain Cast Performance Long Flat Nose Gas Checked bullets. Cast Performance bullets are lead bullets molded from Lead Bullet Technology (LBT) style molds. They are cast from virgin alloy and hardened to a Brinell Hardness of 18-21. They penetrate deeply and do not fragment on bone. LBT style heat-treated solids are rapidly becoming the standard by which all others compare handgun-hunting bullets. This design of bullet does not depend on expansion as do soft point and hollow point bullets, but in fact the performance level achieved by the LBT design is far superior to conventional bullets. The degree of penetration reported by some of our customers with these bullets is truly remarkable, including full-length passage from end to end on some larger hogs. They don?t lead the bore and have been driven as fast as 3,100 fps without causing leading. This Long Flat Nose version has an average frontal surface to produce a good combination of penetration and shock at impact. Starline Brass Cases.
- Ten rounds loaded with 360-grain Cast Performance Wide Long Nose Gas Checked bullets. Though this also is a flat point gas checked bullet, the front is not quite as wide as the wide flat nose version and these bullets tend to run slightly longer than the wide flat nose of equal weight and caliber. This bullet is also slightly more aerodynamic than its wide nose cousin, and if driven at equal velocity the long nose version will penetrate somewhat farther than the wide nose version of the bullet if weight and caliber are the same. Starline Brass cases.
