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 cant 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 would 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 would 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 225-grain Barnes XPB bullets. The Barnes bullet is a homogeneous solid copper hollow point bullet, designed primarily for hunting but can perform as a defensive round when extreme penetration of metal and glass is desired. The Barnes bullet retains virtually 100 percent of its weight and provides deeper penetration than most conventional bullets. Starline brass cases.
- Ten rounds loaded with Hornady 240-grain XTP-MAG bullets. The Hornady XTP-MAG is a beefed up version of the XTP designed for magnum caliber handguns. It offers controlled expansion and deep penetration over a higher and broader velocity range, from 1,200 to 2,300 feet per second.The Hornady XTP is formed from a copper jacket over a lead core. The XTP, which stands for eXtreme Terminal Performance, is regarded as an accurate bullet with good performance over a broad range of velocities. It is produced in several versions for different applications. The basic XTP is a hollow point design engineered with skives to promote controlled expansion, typically about 1.5 times the bullets original diameter. It offers controlled expansion and deep penetration. Recommended velocities range from 700 to 1,500 feet per second. Some of the XTP bullets come with a boat tail design and are designated by the inclusion of BT in their name. Starline brass cases.
