Default Help with Recipe/ Hornady 230 gr XTP

Here is my situation. I have 2 types of powders and no recipe for either.
Hodgdon Longshot, and IMR 4064 (Actually for rifle)
I would like to load up some .45 but cant find documented Load Data in my Lee Book or any place else I have access to.
I have learned Longshot is not great for .45 acp but that is what I have right now.
Any help starting Loads would be greatly appreciated

Well ones a rifle powder and ones a shotgun powder. I don't think you'll find any data for those powders for. 45

Actually the Longshot is commonly used for Handgun Loads. I will keep checking. Thanks

I use Longshot in my 45 ACP and love it. I shoot it with 185gr LSWC and 7gr of powder and it is pretty accurate. It is loud and flashy. Just use the loading data for 230gr bullet but at starting loads (6gr) and keep your OAL at 1.250. Then work you way up. At the starting loads it is dirty though so just do a few.

Don't use the 4064.

For a 230gr FMJ (not HXP) Hodgdon website says: 6.3-6.8 gr of Longshot

I'll check my books though because I know I've seen it somewhere else

My Hornady 9th edition agrees with what Bornonthe4tofJuly posted.

And I'll post from my Nosler 7th edition:
230gr JHP (probably a nosler) noted ballistic coefficient is 0.175..
(The Hornady HXP has a BC of 0.188.)

Nosler data for Longshot, 230 gr JHP (Nosler projectile):
5.9 gr (most accurate)
6.4 gr
6.9 gr (max load, fills 50% of case)

Lyman 49th also has data for 230 gr FMJ. You have what you need but I figured it'd be nice to know Lyman, Nosler, and Hornady manuals have data for Longshot in 45 acp
