Warning! Notes: These loads are very mild for a smokeless powder Colt SAA, but should not be copied directly for any black powder handgun or light frame double actions. Start lower and work up at your own discretion. All loads used CCI small pistol primers, and were chronographed with an Oehler Model 33 with the start screen five feet from the muzzle. (Handloader Issue 109)
