Longer and more Convenient Loading Ram for Ruger Old Army Revolvers

  • Allows shooting reduced loads without the need for filler
  • Eliminates the need for using a second insert to seat the balls
  • Faster in-frame loading system
  • Made in the USA
Designed to easily replace the loading ram for Ruger Old Army black powder revolvers.  The Slix-Ram is designed  at .340” longer than the original.  This added dimension allows the shooter to reload their cylinders with reduced powder charges without having to add filler or use a secondary insert to fully seat the ball.  Obviously, looking at the picture below, it will be more difficult to seat conicals.  Shooters who have tested the extended ram have reported being able to use powder charges as low as 24 grains without a filler, and with a much better sense of convenience.

As you can see from the picture above, it is a simple installation.  Merely replace the Slix-Ram during and cleaning operation, or just exchange it at any time.  They come only in the white and therefore may require more care during cleaning and maintenance.

The manufacturers want to clearly point out that if you have little or no idea how these rams are supposed to fit and work, get help or find someone who does know how to install them.  These Rams are about as close as we have come to a “Drop-In” unit, just take care during installation.

The extended ram allows me to load lighter loads. The reduced recoil helps with my aging hands. It's nice not having to use fillers now.
