45acp 230gr load with W231?

<< < (2/4) > >>

Goatneck:
When we used W231 in Precision Bullseye with a 200gr SWC H&G #68 bullet we used 4.0 grs.  In Wild Bunch the same 4.0gr of 231 with a 230gr bullet sized to .452 will give you a PF of about 160.  That's using my 1911's with Kart national Match Barrels. The same holds true with WST.  Using WST you can load 3.8grs to 4.0grs with my guns will give about the same PF of 160.  Keep in mind as stated earlier each 1911 will produce different PFs.  Check your loads once you settle on a load of your choice.

Watauga Kid:
FFF I used HP38 or W231 at 3.8. I am using Trail Boss at 3.6. All 230RN with WLP primers. and Goatneck or Dusty Boddams do not duck for cover while I at the line. You will not double charge with TB. 

Four Fingers Fred:
Thanks for your input my friends, i will do some load testing!

Kid, how much PF are you making? I load 4.0 TB to hit 160 PF with a 230 gr LRN bullet and Federal Large Pistol Primers.

VICIOUS:
Hi gang. Cold weather has dropped the PF useing 231 from my summer time readings.
