Good Bullseye Load for W231 for 45 ACP
« on: February 13, 2023, 09:54:54 am »
I have a customer with good supply of W231 that he would like to use for 45 ACP, both 200 gr SWC and 230 gr FMJRN.   I have used 231 for other calibers, but I don't have experience with that powder for 45 ACP.   Can anyone suggest some good Bullseye loads for W231.

I tried 4.1 grains of 231 with a 200 grain SWC lead bullet.  Nice starting load for Bullseye matches.  4.2 should work as a starting load for the 230 FMJ bullet.
