I'm happy to report it shoots way better. Maybe someday Ruger will learn how to build them this way from the factory.
With my vaquero I was getting weird blobs of bullet lube on the target. What I think was happening was the bullet was getting swaged down so much that it squeezed the lube out as it exited the cylinder then it was shot out behind the bullet.
For the blackhawk it went from being on a paper plate to grouping the size of a fist. A 50% improvement I'd say. I've got pictures but they will have to wait.
