Re: .45 acp-----.45 lc

probably won't shoot in the first place as there wouldn't be anything to headspace off of. There's also a difference in the loaded diameter as the "acp" case is smaller.

    Since a little after WWII the 45 Colt bores have been standardized to shoot .542 Jacketed bullets. The 45 ACP uses .451 Jacketed bullets. With cast lead bullets most 45 Colts shoot well with .452 but some do need up to .545. Most 45 ACPs shoot best with .452 cast bullets.

    I think you might have transposed a few numbers there...

    Yes he did transpose some numbers, .454 is what he is meaning. I have 2 win lever actions in 45LC. One 16" and the other is a 20" octagon barrel, color case hardened, love them The wife has kinda taken over the 16", I put a Lyman receiver peep on it , it is a fast shooting little rifle .
