I had my Redhawks out last night cleaning them up. So I decided to check my cylinder throats. Yes I know my methods may not be anal enough for some but I first measured them with calipers. Then I pushed a .429dia lead bullet & a .430dia plated bullet thru the cylinders with little or no resistance (the lead bullet falls out by its self on most holes). I'm going to check my Blackhawks tonight.

My 7 1/2" RH was a pawn shop find so it could have been reamed, but my 4" was new when I bought it. Am I just lucky?

Yep I think the uniform throat size is common now. My RH in 45 Colt were uniform, but undersized for lead bullets.

This is a Joke right? To see who could get the Texas ******* drop'n bullets thru all his revolvers! I gobbled it up hook line & sinker! :p :p :p

By the way .452dia lead bullets fall right thru my BH cylinder.
