Just got a Uberti Henry and this was the first problem I ran into. Upon looking up 45 Colt rifle loads in the various handbooks I came across one account that said that it was absolutely vital that overall cartridge length be under 1.60 inches for the rounds to feed properly. My bullet, SAECO #458, has a crimp groove but not at the right place for this overall length. Still I shortened the cartridge length by crimping into a driving band and the rounds now function flawlessly.
