Beretta Stampede 45 Colt

I just picked this up last week to match my Winchester Mod 94 30-30 cal for when me and my buddy head out to his ranch this summer. I'm looking for some good cowboy loads, probably in the lead cast 225-250 grain bullet. I ordered my 45LC Lee Carbide 3-Die set today, since my wife was already ticked I bought another gun. The pistol is single-action w/ 5 1/2" barrel. My biggest question is bullet diameter, I read .451 AND .452...can anyone please advise? Thank you, Bill I attached a photo for this new beauty

8.0 to 8.5 grains of Unique goes well with 250 or 255's...

Yes, in fact I do have a 454... in more ways than one.
