I just today picked up a new Charter Arms Bulldog in .45 Colt. It's not a revolver from which I would ever want to fire +P ammo. On the other hand I have a Ruger Bisley Blackhawk that is very capable of handling +P or what is known by some as Ruger level .45 Colt loads, which by the way is a misleading term given the Ruger New Vaquero's inability to handle such loads. At any rate tonight I loaded just 10 cartridges to try in the Charter Arms Bulldog using 250gr. FN cast bullets over Unique powder with Winchester large pistol primers. While I certainly label each batch of ammo, I thought it would be a good visual reminder to separate the loads by using nickel plated cases for the Charter Arms loads and keep the brass cases for the Ruger level loads..
