Default .45gap out of a .45acp revolver?

My friend has a couple of boxes of .45gap ammo he wants to give me if I can shoot it out of my .45acp revolver.
Does anyone know if this is an option or not a good idea.

Thanks in advance

My recollection from prior discussions is that it is not risky, but will work better with moonclips. I suspect a search of the forum will give you some posts about it.

I can tell you I had some factory 45 Gap that I shot out of a model S&W M625 Champion Series Jerry Miculek. I read somewhere on this forum you could. You might want to go a search.

Works great, with moon clips.


A while back a buddy and I bought up a bunch of American Eagle 45 GAP from a gun store that was closing. He ran his in a Glock M?? and I ran mine in a S & W 1917 with moon clips. No problems.

I owned a G39 sold it and bought a Governor I was shooting G.A.P. till the cows came home, shot just fine only minor problem was because I was using polymer moon clips sometimes a round or two would fall out in my carry box but really no big deal.

I like it because of it's size to carry more and yet with the same power as the a.c.p.
I bought a whole bunch of LE trade in ammo on the cheap.

Not sure how accurate it was but it was just as fun as shooting the a.c.p. out of that Governor that's for sure.
