I?ll start by sharing a one of my favorite reloading recipes!

Caliber: 45ACP
Bullet weight: 200gr
Bullet type/mfg: LSWC / Missouri Bullet
Powder weight: 5.4gr
Powder type: Win231
OAL: 1.22-1.26?
Chrono data: 870
Firearm tested in: Colt 5" 1911
Comments: One of my favorite action pistol loads. Have loaded 3K and counting. Makes nice clean holes for scoring. Be sure there is part of the bullet neck showing above the case, or it?ll hang on the feedramp. Lead can be a little smoky, so best used outdoors.


Always remember to consult the manufacturer's load data and work your loads up by starting below the manufacturer's listed maximum charge. I have made no attempt to check if the loads are within the manufacturer's allowed range.

I've heard that the Vihtavuoir powder is great stuff. N320 is pretty common for 9mm too; around 4.2gr under a 124FMJ. I haven't tried it yet but it's on my list of stuff to buy.

Here's a couple plinking loads I use alot with Oregon Trail 170 gr. FNGC in my 30-30 Marlin.
15.0 grs. H4227 and 18 grs. IMR 4198 they are both good accurate loads that you could squirrel hunt with taking only head shots if you liked.50 yards groups usually stay in or around 3/4"-1". This may not sound impressive but I'm fairly new to peep sight shooting. I really need to get a scoped 30-30 for load development to see how well they really do.

Here's my most successful cast load to date:
.357 mag
Lee 358-140-SWC pan lubed with NRA formula
8.5gr Accurate No. 5
WSP primer
Mixed brass

Runs 1010fps on average out of my 2.5 inch model 66. I can shoot them by the hundreds with no leading at all.

Here's a target from 10-ish yards as I was running a dozen of them across the chrono
