Gaucho in 45 colt, just what can it take ammunition wise? I want to know if it can take a decent and effective deer round at 1000 fps. Or if i should just load like Elmer did, or go with winchester silvertips as some have advised doing.
It'll take a 255 grainer at 1000 fps, but I wouldn't go much hotter with it. I have a handload, 8.3 grains Unique, 255 Lee flat nose, that would fill the bill, out to maybe 50 yards. That's as far as I really wanna shoot with iron sights, anyway. It's a very accurate load, too.
