It will be interesting to see how well it shoots lead bullets with the shallow rifling. I have some 200 and 230 gr. cast at .452 in. I'm betting it will work.
Based on my experience with factory .45 Auto Rim ammo in a M-1950 Target .45, I wouldn't make that bet, unless the bullets are pretty hard. Accuracy was awful.

I didn't want to mess with half moon clips and ACP ammo, so sold that gun.
