You have to seat the bullet as far down as possible in the cylinder so the bullet will clear as the cylinder passes the barrel. At 25 yards I can put six round balls in 1/2 dollar group, off hand. The pistol does not seem to loose any accuracy. I know this is likely the top limit of what you can load the pistol. But I am known for doing everything to the outer limits
I am like you I shoot my ROA with hot loads, 40/45 and 50 grains of powder.
I also use Conical Bullets like the LEE 220 Grain Bullet, REAL 200/250 Grain and Buffallo Ballett as well. For $50.00 Clements customs guns with drill(Bore) out extra metal in the cylinder giving the shooter 5 to 10 grains more capacity of powder, Classic Ball Six also offers a extra cylinder for the ROA.
A question for you, Is your ROA a Fixed sighted model or the older adjustable sighter model, Blue or Stainless?
I shoot better with fixed sighs than adjustable.
