Re: 45lc 1892 COL maximum --anyone?

Mine loves the 300 grain Hornady XTPs and so with the case cut to 1.275 the COL comes out at 1.653" which is about .015" too long for clearance. Rather than mess with the carrier wouldl I be ok to just shorten the cases a little bit more to say 1.260" . OR would there be a large pressure problem.?

Buffalo Bore makes a stout +P load for ruger pistols and any modern 1892 rifles that shoot 1700fps out of rifles. The bullet looks like its a Speer 300gr JFN BUT the diameter is .451 .My Winchester Miroku barrel is most probably a .452. Should I expect poor groups?

took a look at the elevation steps and they are angled upward against the rear sight blade so thats a good thing I think. But the tension from the sight body was not good enough and so I bent it downward some more. See if this holds up. But it sure is cheapy .
