View Full Version : just a thougt, not a good one

i sometimes load bp 45 colts, just for kicks (By the way i really like the Goex Clear shot, I don't use enough for the cost to really be an issue)

But anywho, i shoot these from a 3 3/4" vaquero, i figure i can probly only burn 25 or so grains out of 35 before it's pushed out of the barrel, i shoot plenty of flame.

If i loaded the last 7-10 grains with fg or ffg, i currently shoot all fffg, what's going to happen to the flame appearance, i'm looking for bigger?

Any thoughts? don't be afraid to call me an idiot.

Your wording has me confused. Do you mean that you want a duplex load of 7 to 10grs FFG with 25 to 27grs Clear shot?

You want more flame exiting the muzzle?

yes, if i put a courser, slower burning, powder as the last 7-10 grains what would happen,

Thank you

You shouldn't have pressure problems going to a coarser grain. They only question would be whether you could develop enough pressure to get the ball out of the barrel.
