What velocity do you get from factory .45 ACP ammo in that shorter barrel?
T S,

If you are asking me that question I have no idea. Donít own a chronograph and have no desire to buy one. I load 240 grain full wadcutters over Red Dot or Unique. Also load 260 grain SWCs and some 240 grain SWCs.

Unshared knowledge is wasted.
