Hi guys,have any of the folks here had any experience running flat nose pistol bullets in the Ruger. I have searched this forum pretty well and can't seem to find any info on it. From what I can gather from this article"http://www.realguns.com/articles/882.htm"the accuracy with flat nosed bullets in nearly non existent with the fast twist barrel in these rifles.
I was hoping to be able to use less expensive 45 colt bullets (jacketed and cast) for pest destruction here in Australia but it sounds a lot like I might be out of luck unless I run them closer to pistol velocities.
I see they seem to work ok in the slower twist ARs but the 1:16 of the rugers causes stability issues apparently.
I have already ordered and paid for the rifle so I hope there might be some experienced people here to offer some advice.
Part 2 of the article with the accuracy issues is in the link above. Part 1 is here http://www.realguns.com/articles/883.htm
