    Yeah, it would be nice if I could use the same cast bullets I have for my .41 mag in this semi-auto gun. As for top velocity, it depends heavily on what the brass will be able to tolerate with that traditional 1911 style barrel in the Delta. Because the case support on goes back so far with the stock barrel, if you're not using top quality brass, failing to put on a good taper crimp on the cartridge and pushing the upper limits, you will get a pretty ugly bulge back by the case head that probably can't be re-sized out. We'll see what happens. There are full-case support aftermarket Delta barrels available to address this for people who really want to touch the top of the pressure curve with the Delta Elite.
    Accuracy: because white space between bullet holes drives me insane.
