Amen to that.

That's why I was keen to fit a new UBERTI cylinder to my Colt Navy made in 1852. I'm not a gunsmith but I do have an engineering background. Ten grains of Santa Barbara BP in the ORIGINAL cylinder and no more from now on.

BTTT... As for the OP's question? Absolutely you should shoot that thing!  I've put hundreds of rounds through mine. Serial # in the 52k range. War Dept. inspector markings etc. Bought a Johnston and Dow mold and build full-strength BP cartridges.
