Nice revolver and a bit more collectible than a Model 25-2. If you have pin gauges you can accurately measure the throats in the cylinder. If not, and you have access to someone who casts 45 caliber bullets you might be able to get a sampling of bullets in varying diameters to test drop in the chambers. The smallest one that hangs up in all of the cylinders is what you are after. Size your cast bullets to that diameter.

If you choose to shoot factory, hardball is what these were designed to shoot.

All of my ACP revolvers like the Lyman 452423 (240 grain Keith SWC) and the SAECO 453 (240 grain full wad cutter) over hardball doses of powder.

Unshared knowledge is wasted.
