This one is my favorite for my 1911's.

4.8grs of Bullseye.
SNS Castings 200gr LSWC seated so the bearing surface shelf is about 1/16" above the case mouth (on average).
Crimp to .470" at the case mouth (this will aid in feeding the SWC bullet).

You can probably go down as low as 4.0grs of BE without any major cycling problems with stock springs.

You need to be careful loading this as a double charge will not overfill the case.

Thanks guys, whenever i see target load data for .45 it usually consists of 200gr SWC and lead....hmmm

I would have thought jacketed bullets would be more accurate, ill order some lead.

Has anyone ever used the 200gr SWC from hornady?

200gr SWC make nice clean round holes. If your pistol will feed them, the way to go.

SWC make such awesome holes!

I had 500 LSWC (200 gn) that would never cycle in my glock 21, I couldn't figure out how deep to seat them to feed. Now that I have an RIA tactical, I might try again and see if the 1911 feeds them. Would be weird if the 1911 does, but the glock didn't.

Anyway, I like

4.0 grns of Clays (normal Clays, not Universal Clays or International Clays)
230 gn RN bullet, either FMJ or Berry's plated (I use Berry's currently).

Seated to 1.260" because I run Chip McCormack 10 round mags in the 1911 and the magazine had an insert that said "These feed best with rounds loaded out to at least 1.260"). I think the max is 1.275".

For the glock I used to load to 1.250, but I think I'll just go to 1.260 for all .45ACP reloads so that the 1911 will feed them with those mags.

LOL! Then try the loads and tell me if it's my shooting, or my loads!

4 gns Clays and 230 gn RN is a very common .45 ACP loading!

Depends what your purpose is... Just plinking or a single box to get a tight group? I use cheapy Tula,wolf for plinking and I use Critical defense for hd. I did run a couple boxes thru my Kimber to make sure there were no feed issues but it cost me almost 100 bucks.

Target load, most accuracy is the goal.

Looks like the SWC of the 200 gr variety are popular...will order a few batches from various manufacturers and test them out...

Anyone else have loads dont hesitate to post'em.

Also instead of starting another thread does anyone have a good powder that is both accurate and high volume (Hard to double charge, takes more room in case)?

I load both 230gr RN and 200gr SWC (both lead) with 5.0gr of Bullseye works great in my 1911.
I have shoot them off a sandbag and all in the 10 ring at 20 yards (they shoot better than I can)

230grn Bear Creek RN bullet
5.0grns Winchester 231 powder
Wolf LP primer or any other LP primer will do
C.O.L---- 1.270
slight taper crimp----0.470

Best and most accurate target load I found for my 1911s. Also feeds great in my Glock 30sf

.
My RIA didn't really care for SWC untill after a few hundred rounds of round nose. It's probably 99.9% with them now.

I like 4.2gr of Green Dot under a 200gr SWC. Bear Creek, Berry's, Xtreme. All work well. It cycles both my bottom feeders 100% but I don't have to chase the brass very far. OAL depends on the bullet.

I also like 4.8gr of Green Dot under a Bear Creek 200gr RNHB @ 1.240". This has a bit more pop to it but is still very accurate.

6 grains Unique and a 230gn TMJ RN. A little stout for true target. Now that I have a gun with normal rifling I can use my stock of moly coated 200gn LSWC and 5 grains.

Here is an 8 shot group at 15 yards freehand.
230g. Golden Saber over 7.4 grains of Power Pistol, Wolf primer. This is an expensive very hot load but crazy accurate.


I get similar groups with Missouri 200g. LSWC Major Power Factor bullet and 5.7 grains of Universal Clays and Wolf primer. It gets about 950fps and has almost no leading.

Tabors in San Bruno has them in stock.

You can get them direct from the source by calling, I will see if I can find where I put the phone number so I wouldn't forget where I put it.

Bear Creek Bullets. Waterford, Ca. Phone (209) 874-4322. There shipping is cheap if you buy enough. Steve is the owner. If they dont answer, try back in a hour or two because they might be out making deliveries. I personally pick up my bullets in person but its only about an hour drive for me. P.S-- Ervington Arms in Fremont sells Bear Creek Bullets also.....

I have targets like that. The really hard part is getting the powder burns out of the paper...

200gr plated round nose over 4.6gr of bullseye, light load but cycles my springfield 1911 just fine.
Can't get the LSWC to feed...

Wow, I never realized how popular the 200gr LSWC bullet is but then again im farly new to reloading 45 ACP. I didnt think a SWC bullet would be popular in a 1911. I have just used the good ole 230gr bullet over 5gr of bullseye. I may have to try some those 200 grainers one day

I use 200 gr lswc cast by local IDPA shooter Pete. His price is better than anyone and the product is just as fine as well. I am going to try to get him to sell some on CG. I shoot 6.5 gr WSF at a col that feeds.
