45 long colt verses 45 Schofield

Recommended Posts

American rifleman is on TV highlighting the Taurus judge and said it shoots long cokt and Schofield.  I did an internet search and it shows that the smith and wesson governor shoots the Schofield as well.  Is there any advantage of the Schofield over the long colt round?

If the gun is strong enough, with a shorter case you can use less powder to get the same result. You could load Schofield brass with the 255 grain bullet to Colt velocities, using less powder then it would take in Colt brass.
