    I have a Uberti 1875 Outlaw 45, love the gun. My question is about amo. I am going to Alaska next month and am wondering what amo I should get for defense against bears, will the Uberti handle hotter loads? Is this a realistic gun to take for this purpose? Thanks!

    Stick to standard pressure loads only

    The steels are probably better than a hundred plus years ago, but the design isn't set up to handle +p loads that ruger's will digest.

    There are a few ammo makers that make warmer loads that might be appropriate for a modern reproduction. These would be a 250 grain bullet at about a 1,000+ fps.
    Standard loads offer the same bullet at about 100 fps less.
    Don't know if that's the answer you wanted to hear.

    Look at item number 3E, 255 grain SWC-GC standard pressure load.


    That is the best you can do for bear protection in your gun.
    But I wouldn't even shoot a lot of them in a Uberti, as they are still pretty hot by normal .45 Colt standards.
