In addition, the cast bullet diameter best suited to these Ruger long guns is 0.432". This is due to the SAAMI specifications for chambering dimensions. As is true with Ruger .44 Magnum handguns, these long guns are also chambered with chamering reamers having throat dimensions of .432"-.4325" in all instances. Although the groove dimensions of these carbines usually measures a very uniform and consistent .429", the large diameter throats necessitate .432" diameter cast bullets for proper alignment going into the bore for best accuracy.
