Lee reloading book

Recommended Posts

Guest diablo slim shootist

Seems like a good day for reloading and I've got a question

hope someone can answer.The lee second edition says:

For lead bullets:45 colt

180 grain tightgroup 6gr 900fps

tightgroup 6.9 1020fps

200grain tightgroup 6.5 900fps

tightgroup 7.7 1050 fps

I always think that as the weight of the bullet goes up

the charge in grains goes down.Can someone straiten me out on this

or is the book wrong :huh:

Thanks for your 2cents in advance! Diablo Slim

According to Hodgdon reloading center for 45 colt: 180 grain RNFP for tightgroup 6.0 to 6.9, 200 grain with tightgroup 6.5 to 7.7, 250 grain RNFP with tightgroup 5.0 to 6.2

 

Looks as the Lee book is spot on, guess it pays to have several re-loading books and checked the web site for the powder being used

 

 

 

All for now JD Trampas
