    The only true measure for your particular gun is to slug the barrel and measure the chamber throats.

    I shoot .451 RNL (ACP bullets) and .452 SWC lead bullets in my .45C Vaquero and Super Redhawk .454 using Unique, and they seem to work just fine for me.

    +1. Sorry, but if you take those measurements, you will know what you need.
    Bullets should be a tight fit in the throat and should be at least 0.001" larger than groove diameter. All firearms vary in dimensions and there is no single size that is best for all.
