I shot my Ruger Bisley .44sp today, used the 200gr Win Silvertip JHP. A little research on chrono data indicates this load is in the low 800fps range from a gun like this. Recoil was about consistent with what remember of .45acp in a 5" 625, so I easily believe low to mid 800's is about right. I thought my shooting was rather spastic for 25yrds and only 20rounds- from single action, no less.....but they were in the black at least, just not very consistent given what I know this gun can do. Still, lots of fun. No jams.
