That looks like one of the "Cattleman" guns. Enjoy it. Those that I've shot have been pretty nice. DO NOT try any hot loads out of this one though. Ya might end up minus a finger or 2. Colt SAA loads only.
As mentioned, this gun was made for the Cowboy Action Shooting crowd and will not take kindly to loads much hotter than the Cowboy loads. I had a couple of them and eventually replaced them with old style Ruger Vaquero (the newly designed Vaqueros are not designed for hot loads either). As mentioned, you could keep it and use it to fire CAS loads to get the brass then buy a stronger model for hunting.
All of those you listed should be just fine. The Manufacturers will tell ya if the loads are for T/Cs or Rugers.
Anything listed as ''Cowboy'' will be fine. These loads will be less than 1000FPS and at low pressures.
All those listed should be safe to fire in your Uberti, as should the Winchester Sivertip hollow points. The only negatives is that the round flat, and semi-wadcutter bullets are of a rather soft lead that might have a problem penetrating a tough target and the hollow points often do not generate enough velocity to expand, at least that has often been the case with the Federal and Winchesters on deer; I am not sure about the CCI as I have not used them. I see no need for a non-reloadable case in a revolver.
Sounds like you should have saved your dough and bought a Blackhawk convertible. I see barely used versions popping up for $300ish prices. Live and learn. I'd like a 5.5" model, though I don't know how much use I would get out of the ACP cylinder. I might just go for the .45 Colt cylinder, but its not that much more to get the convertible. I let a used convertible slip by me at a great price that I should have snapped up. Won't happen again.
was bored and cant sleep. so I took it apart. de-burred and sorta polished the hammer, hand and trigger, and backed off the spring on the hand plunger. Seems to be a bit smoother now, or maybe its just in my head :?
picked up a 50 round box of blazer ammo. I know I know :? , but it was cheap (pay day next friday) and the ammo selection wasnt very good either. I blasted off 44 rounds (saved 6 on purpose). So far I really like it! being single action kinda makes me slow down, wich makes the ammo last longer and helps me relax. The blazer ammo honestly wasnt that bad. recoil was pleasant, not as dirty as I thought would be, hit high but that could be the gun. Will pick up some different ammo next weekend after payday.
