    There are some of the choices for hollow points and defensive loads in .45 Colt. Gold Dots and Corbon DXP's are available, and should get the job done. Don't know how the shot barrel could affect it. I would think a good old fashioned lead 250gr flat point would get the job done pretty good too. Winchester also makes a 255 gr HP.

    45 colt is so good that you could probably just use the 250 grain flatnose lead bullets. I keep these "cowboy" loads in mine- about 350 ft/lbs- and it is plenty I think. I guess this is an advantage of a huge bullet. Now I cannot actually conceal that revolver....
