.45 Colt load info request


Ketchum Quick, SASS #72923

Recommended Posts

I am looking for some ideas about loading some .45s. I have a nice supply of 200 grain bullets and a pile of Federal large pistol primers and now I just need to finish the formula. Please PM me with your ideas. I am looking for a light recoiling load.

 

Thanks for the help,

Do you have some C45S brass? - I hear that is the BEST way to acheive the lighter loads with accuracy.

No Gunner I am loading for my '73 and I do not have the special modded carrier to run that brass. Besides, my rifle has a 24 inch barrel, I am not too worried about top notch accuracy.

IMR, Hodgdon and Winchester all publish "cowboy" loads. they are available on their web sites.

 

^^^^This pretty much, IMR has an online searchable laoding manual. You match p your caliber to your bullet and powder, and Bangor you got your minimum and max powder measure. All you are missin is some Trail Boss powder....

Try the loading data in the Hodgdon on-line manual:

for the 200 grain lead bullet and mid-to-low end Clays load.

 

And my favorite is the low end 700X load. Little more accurate than Clays for me.

 

Good luck, GJ
