it seemed to be horribly over size for ACP.
When I've shot my S&W Hand Ejector Mk. II/M1917 cylinder combo with .45 ACP hardball, it will just stay on a paper plate at ten yards.
Changing to handloaded .45 Colt bullets, the pointed, hollow-based projectiles used in factory loads, it will easily shoot 2"-3" at fifteen yards.
I was sort of surprised that the .456" bullets, loaded in ACP cases, would fit in the chambers, but they seem a decent match for the barrel.
