Having read that the US Army reissued their Peacemakers to the troops when it was found the .38 was inadequate to anchor a determined enemy, let me ask you Colteers a question.
Was the .45 ammo used in the Phillipines (1) .45 Schofield as issued in the 1870's or (2) actual .45 Colt full power loads or (3) some other load?
Also, any recommended books about Colt and/or other military sidearms?
Thank you,

cant say about the ammo but i would think by that time most of the schofield stuff was already used or sold as surplus. a very good book is the charles pate book on military handguns. i`m sure a google search would turn up a copy. are you in ky??
