Browning Phonecall Read This Folks!
Wal Scout the sad reality is that you ain't gonna get ANY manufacturer of handguns to tell you it is OK to use ANY reload in them. Heck TC wouldn't even admit that in the barrels they sold that were strictly wildcat calibers for which factory ammo has never been made..
The reason is they have no control over the loading practices nor the pressures and just ain't gonna play. Factory ammo these days means anything made by any company that uses all new components and correctly handstamped brass to produce ammo. That includes folks like Garrett, COR-BON and Buffalo Bore all of whom make some really hot stuff. It is factory ammo. So call back and ask if the rifle is OK for use with factory loads from Buffalo Bore. IF so for dang shore it will handle the Ruger/TC level hand loads as that stuff Tim is putting out is some kinda hot.
You do as ya wish. If I owned one, which I don't, I'd use the Ruger/TC load data in mine.
