Lower Recoil

I think 160-grain bullets are available. That's about the same as the 158-grain .38/.357 pills.

Bayou Bullets is my favorite supplier of coated bullets. Their shipping time for my last 2 shipments from October and November was about 2 months. They were taking 4-5 months for a while. It wasn't an issue for me because I had other bullets to load. If you need them quick you might consider some others. Hopefully Bayou is getting caught up.

Have had great results with Bayou Bullets, Miculek family.  They were fast to deliver even during the great component drought.


Donnie Miculek hasn’t owned Bayou in quite a while... He sold it to concentrate on being the supplier for the Hi-Tek coating in the US.

Thanks - didn't know, and there has been no change in doing business with them, other than I haven't gotten a response from them on a recent suggestion.  I thought they might offer a silver coating for Cowboy Shooters - Hi Yo Silver!

Well Dang  :mellow:

 

None of the above :rolleyes:   

 

Give Shootin Fox a missive for the 130Gr BARNSTORMER bullet.  Absolutely fantastical .45 Bullet.  FOR PISTOLS ONLY.  Perfect pistol bullet but does NOT play well in a rifle.

due to arthritis and a carpal tunnel injury I have lighter loads for my revolvers than my rifle

use a felt tip on the heads to tell difference

 

I use a 160 grain bullet from a Lee mold

3.5 gr Red Dot

 

nice light load out of original Ruger Vaqueros (the old large frame ones)

3.9 grains of Clay Dot under a 160 grain Lee pc'd bullet works great.

I use C45S brass,but this works  out of .45 Colt,too.

I want to start reloading my .45 Colt ammunition, but need some advice on what to use to achieve the lowest recoil. I have everything but the lead bullets! I would appreciate any help you can offer!

Thanks everyone for your input! It was really helpful!!

If using a bullet so light for caliber as 160 or less, one would have to be mindful of the SASS limit of 1000 fps for pistols. A load like that in a big gun could feel light and be faster than expected.

Lower down on this page is my post, “Mild load for 45 Colt”. 
 

I tried a load of 4 grains Unique with a 160 grain bullet. Worked well.

 

The post received quite a few responses. Many good Pards offered excellent suggestions for additional mild loads for 45 Colt. Some good info there.

 

Adios
