Also a 454 casull will not chamber in a 45LC pistol. My reloading manuals list two loading for the 45LC. One for colt single actions and one for the stronger Ruger blackhawks. Some may also list a third for double action Colt and S&W revolvers. Your 45LC will kill very well any Deer sized animal.
Yes, it was a guy by the name of Dick Casull in the 1950s. He used three different powders to propel his bullet(adviced against today). He also, help with development of the Freedom Arms revolvers.

The First Point and Click Interface was a Smith & Wesson.

thanks Karl for the history input. I know I'm on the short list but I hate to see deer hunters with 357 or 45 long colts. I just like the bigger the better on handgun hunting.
