Re: Need Load Data for .45 using Berry's 230 plated bullets
5 gr is a good load.. one I use myself both with cast lead and jacketed 230 grainers indescriminantly. It is one of Mike Venturinos 2 loads that he uses foir all his 230 gr .45ACP shooting. His other load is also one i use. 5.4 gr W231 with the same bullets.
Another load I developed myself with the same bullets yet again is 4.5 gr Titegroup.
All 3 loads work very well with any 230 gr bullet.
It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 3 for proper trigger squeeze.
The latest caliber or gear is no substitute for experience and skill. Rifles and cartridges don't make hits -- shooters do.
Fact of life:
After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says WTF!
