Default RE: Do you ever shoot 45LC in 454

I' ve got a FA 454 which I load down. It' s very pleasant to shoot that way. The first 200 rounds I shot out of it were full power hunting rounds[]. FA is the only manufacturer that advises against shooting 45 Colt loads as the shorter casing will allow the buidup of fouling in the already tight chamber.

On a related subject, where can I find a distributor of cast bullets for reloading? I found one source, but their info stated that the bullets needed to be sized for the gun. Is this typical? I' ve been buying mine at gun shows and just loading them. Do you recommend any sources of cast bullet info?
