Default What gun?

I'm looking for a S&W that can specifically handle this

45 Colt (Long Colt) +P 325 Grain Lead Long Flat Nose Gas Check – Underwood Ammo

Its gonna be a woods gun but I also want a shooter so I wanted a 45 lc. I need something that isn't super expensive but I can trade some guns for it.

Well a 460 for sure.

I'm not so sure about using that load in a 25 or 625 in 45 Colt. If I had one, I probably wouldn't shoot that load in it. It might be safe, but it's going to give an N frame a beating.

From the link:

"These loads are safe in all large frame Ruger revolvers, TC Contender, and Colt Anaconda. These loads are safe in all modern Model 1892 leverguns as well as all Winchester & Marlin 1894’s. These Heavy .45 Colt +P loads are NOT intended for the New Model Vaquero (small frame). DO NOT USE IN ANY OTHER FIREARM."

Ruger makes a nice DA .45 Colt. Good luck in your decision.

Don't want something expensive but can take the punishment? - Ruger Blackhawk. Redhawks can do it too, but they are a few hundred more.

I have two 25's, and those only see target (fun to shoot for me) loads. I have an old three screw Blackhawk and a Freedom Arms 83 in .454 if I feel like getting my knuckles rapped.
