.452 should be just fine in a 45 long colt. Go for it! Smile

Molds intended for .45 ACP won't have a crimp groove, which may or may not be a problem in your .45 Colt revolver. You can always taper crimp the revolver rounds, which should work unless you're loading 'barn-burners.'

You dont "Need" a gas check. But they do make life easier

This would be a good 45 colt bullet that doesn't use a gas check.

not to expensive. Looks like you can either tumble lube it or run it through a lube sizer. and I would try to use it as dropped.
