As as been said it's a do all cartridge. I bought a New Vaquero convertible and have been handloading 45 Colt for a short time. With all the reading I'm now looking to buy a 92 Rifle in 45 Colt, and a Ruger Blackhawk Bisley Hunter (going to be hard to find) in 45 Colt.
In fact I just went to the range today and I had more fun shooting my handloads that are a touch warmer than factory ammo, and cost me WAY less. I figured I'm in it for .17 a round vs .80+ cents a round!
Do yourself a favor and get one or four guns in 45 colt!!!!
