    I bought a 500 count box of Speer bullets for loading in .45 Colt. They are 250 grain LSWC. My question is I miked several of these bullets and they measured .453. Should I resize these to .452 or are they goood to go as is? I will have to lube them.

    The guns I intend to shoot these in are a Ruger NM Blackhawk, NM Blackhawk Bisley and an Uberti SAA clone.

    They'll be just fine. Speer uses a swaged bullet with a graphite type lube, so they're a little soft. No need to resize or re-lube. You might keep your loads down a bit until you see if you have any leading. I use their 230 grain RN in my .45 ACP 1911A1 and have never had a problem.
