Be converted into a 454 Casull. If so I will call you tomorrow and we can work out the details. Thanks Pete

THE ANSWER IS STILL THE SAME.

Perhaps another question instead,

How about a Uberti Colt SAA clone fitted with a 45 ACP cylinder?
Colt "convertible" 45 Colt/45 ACP?

In reference to the Convertible Colt

15,000 psi vs 60,000 psi . . . gee, I dunno. What could possibly go wrong?

;-)

Since you brought some light upon the tech aspect

I read a lot of the data is now transitioning to PSI rather than the historical CUP (Crusher Units Pressure?). Perhaps you understand this more than us mentally challenged and can distill the correlation down to us neophytes to understand? PSI I understand but I never could understand CUP other than comparing it to another CUP that I could relate. Such as a CUP 2x, 3x that of a service load .38 Special etc.

The Casull is at the top end of what can be done in our modern world. Obvious the original question is a bit self answering, even considering a custom 5-shot conversion that would be frivolous.

I believe you will notice that . . .

. . . all the current latest reloading information is in PSI now. The way pressures are tested has changed to check out the overall "burn progress" as opposed to a single point check as done by the old "crusher" process.

There is no "conversion factor" between CUP and PSI.

Just gonna have to move into the 21st century, like it or not. Many folks will argue the old "pressure warning" signs like primer condition are valid, but there's just too much else going on to trust that and similar stuff.

Gotta remember . . . Elmer blew up a lotta guns.

I guess so.

A part of my professional duties are to manage laboratory operations and limited specific research projects. I am empathetic as to the huge variations there must have been in "Crusher" fixtures. The only uniformity must have been one test facilities data as a whole. I'd not venture as to the comparison to another like grouping without some industrial standard.

PSI is universal and easier for me to relate and understand. My SCUBA tanks are scary at 3,300 psi rolling around in the sunshine in my boat.

just forget CUP. PSI is the only true reference.

I have seen the incrementally larger ones

change more drastically with age than the smaller versions!

Good point.
