Good job on the video but, loading sounds complicated, to me anyway. Good advise on checking to see if Bubba has been into the cyoinder, also. Thanks for sharing.

Real nice gun and professional presentation ..

So a question, if you had a gun that had been bored out to accept the 45 acp round, would you still be able to load an original round into the chamber..??

The chamber recess is not altered by the reaming to 45 ACP case dimensions, and an orignal round would load and be held by its rim as originally.
Negative point is the side of the case would not be supported by the chamber wall and if fired would suffer from excessive expansion and poor accuracy.
