45 ACP LRN in a Baby Eagle II??

Anyone reload for a Baby Eagle?
I can't find any good information if you can shoot lead bluets.

Thanks

It's not poly rifled or gas operated, so you should be good to go. The DE is gas operated & doesn't like lead bullets.

Thanks Fred, I was not sure and MRI's website did not offer any real info because they don't recommend reloads.

Hi,

I think Baby Eagles have had both poly and traditional barrels depending on the year they were made. Check the barrel to be sure.

Good luck,

Alan
