THIS IS WHAT I USE AND IT WORKS FOR ME. IF YOU ARE GOING TO USE IT, USE IT AT YOUR OWN RISK.

45 ACP crimp same for all loads .470
185gr LSWC Dardas
CCI large pistol primers
7.2gr of Longshot
COL 1.250
This for my USC 45 and it is pretty freaking accurate, even in my Sig 1911.

200gr Extreme plated SWC
CCI large pistol primers
3.5gr Trial Boss
COL 1.230
This is for my Sig 1911 for competition. Very little recoil. I used a 12 lbs recoil spring. This powder stinks though.

185gr LSWC Dardas
CCI large pistol primers
6gr IMR PB
COL 1.250
Still testing but good so far. Will try with 200gr Extreme plated SWC pills soon. When using PB pay attention to the powder. It meters well but it is of a flat/dull black color and doesn't shine very well with my light.

223
55gr Nosler Ballistic Tip Varmit
CCI small rifle primers
22.8gr Varget
COL 2.260

Next week I will start the same load as above with Hornady 55gr FMJBT at a COL 2.250 same load of powder. Will be using CCI #41 primers.

45.0 grains of Win 296 (h110)
45 cal 240 grain hornady xtp mag jacketed hollow point
Large rifle magnum primer
Starline 460 S&W mag case
19xx fps actual chrono readings with 8 3/8" barrel.

10.0 trail boss
270 grain 45 cal cast hollow point boolit
large rifle primer
starline 460 case
1,000 fps chrono speed
Good enough to hit a 12" steel plate at 100 yards and light recoil.

40 S&W
4.6 win 231/hp38
155 lead semi wad cutter
wolf/tula small pistol primers
1,000 fps
I managed to hit the 100 yard plate with the sights dead on the target, but used a sand bag to rest the gun. This load is soft to shoot but is very fast for 3 gun competitions.

30-30 180 grain cast boolit
mixed brass
large rifle primer (any brand)
9.6 grains of herco shotgun powder
1300 fps
low recoil and can hit a 14" plate offhand at 165 yards with factory win 94 iron sights. Cost: $9 per 100 rounds.

9mm 115 rn moly coated lead bullet
5.6 (would have to double check load book) grains of hp-38 (DO NOT USE THIS. WAY BEYOND MAX LOAD)
winchester small pistol mag primers
I forgot the chrono numbers but it should be 1200-1300 fps. This is used in a springfeild single stack 9mm 1911 with a compensator and red dot. It was build for a load that is very hot. This works the comp pretty well, but the powder is too fast. This is my dad's competition/plinking gun. He used to shoot a 45 1911 with iron sights but his sights always came loose so he just upgraded to a whole used gun. The old one is an AMT Skipper.
