Just to make conversation----- I am curious. The .45 ACP was introduced in 1906, or maybe before depending on what source is used. Would those early .45 autos have been loaded with black powder?

Just curious.
No.

But some daredevils do shoot BP in it occasionally  :D

NO----Have never read of any 'from back in the day' . Have read here and there of a few guys doing it and gave up due to semiauto jamming up for all of the black powder residue. Can see why they would. 'Not a harmonious outcome' for sure. :'( ;D

I thought that was him.  He was a wealth of knowledge about shooting BP.  Sadly most of us who participate in the BP sports are starting to age out.  I miss a lot of those old guys like him and Ottawa Creek Bill.

Miss those guys also, plus a long list of others who passed and those who just quit posting and/or left the forum.

No, autos are notorious for being unable to run very long on BP due to the fouling. That's why the invention of smokeless allowed the development of reliable automatics. Also, you can look at the .45 Colt cartridge and the .45ACP next to each other. The lower volume of powder needed to produce equivalent performance is evident.

Back when I had my 1st and only Ruger Vaquero, it was a convertible .45.  I used to shoot BP 45acp in that.  I used 17gr of FFFg Goex and a 230gr RN bullet.  It was fun.  :)  I actually still have a little bit of that ammo left over.  I keep saying one day I'll shoot it in a 1911.  Maybe I'll shoot it at some of those flying pigs.  :D

Comparable to putting diesel fuel in your gasoline powered vehicle. Have known several who have done that. Years ago my wife advised that some thieves in the dark of night filled their car up at her family farm. When her Dad woke and saw what was going on the thieves fled down the gravel road. Sheriff Dept was called but easily located the thieves a short distance. They had filled their gasoline powered vehicle with diesel fuel. Dumb crook award to those guys.  ;D
