Picked up this rather nice Dairt box today. Short of full by 7 rounds (guess that math figures…) with the expected “RA 41”, “RA 42” and “W.R.A.CO. .45 A.C.” headstamps. Looked back at Forum discussions and the fine article by John Moss in Journal Issue 461 on these but didn’t see a weight for the “Oilite” projectile mentioned (could have missed it though…) A cartridge weight of about 232 grains would seem to indicate around a 150 grain bullet. Has anyone pulled one for an accurate weight?
If near 150 grains, would guess getting proper function out of a M1911 would likely mean some zippy velocity. Any thoughts on that?
