Why the 255 grain limit?

Lloyd, the 45 Cowboy Special can be loaded with the same recipes as the 45 ACP. I do not think of them as pop gun loads.

Because it is my understanding that was the common bullet weight for the original BP loads.

The "long jump to the rifling" argument has never held up all that well for me. I've got a Blackhawk Convertible that shoots .45 ACP as well as or better than the corresponding .45 Colt loadings.

I find bullet selection has more effect on accuracy than case length.
