Re: .45 ACP Powder

My 1991A1 loves Bullseye.
After being smithed for Bullseye shooting, this gun will hold the X ring of the regulation Bullseye target at 50 yards from a Ransom Rest.
If only I could shoot half as well as the gun can.

3.8 grs. of Bullseye
Lyman 452460 cast from wheelweights with 1.5% tin added. Sized to .452, Blue Angel lube.
Federal LPP
Starline brass
Taper crimped to .470 OD at case mouth.

I would really like to try TiteGroup, but I still have 6 lbs of Bullseye left in the 8 lb. jug.
At only 3.8 grains per load, it's going to last a while!

IDPA and 3 gun is where I settled on Titegroup. I have no idea how many thousands of rounds I have pushed with that stuff. I tried Clays Universal, power pistol, bullseye, ... and still have afew cans of that stuff around but I just liked Titegroup better. For action pistol stuff its great.

Re: .45 ACP Powder

Win 231 for me. Hodgdons HP38 seems to be identical to this since the Hodgdon recipie book shows the same dosage for max and starting loads and velocities. I have never used the HP but I have a pound I will be trying soon.
GRAVITY. It's not just a good idea. It's the LAW!

Re: .45 ACP Powder

I recently tried Power Pistol (9.5gn) in between a 185gn Speer Gold Dot HP and Winchester LP primers. Works great through my Kimber Pro Carry II at 1.240". I have used Bullseye and Unique for various bullet weights. Like'm all.....JohnnyK.

Re: .45 ACP Powder

w231, not for any special reason though. Maybe I'll try the titegroup next, although I don't shoot pistol that much so a single pound will take me awhile to burn up. Of course, I'm having my pistol jazzed up at Springer Precision, so maybe I'll shoot it more once I get it back...
