    got my taurus pt 945 dialed in this morning,10 grains of surplus wc820 powder under a speer 230 grain jhp.
    started at 6 grains(some barely got the bullet from the barrel,others shot a 3 foot flame like my de)
    11 grains was pretty hot,but acceptable,and havent had a chance to chrony them yet.
    have now got a powder which performs well in 50,440,44 magnum and 45 acp,with 9mm waiting for loads to be developed.
    anyone wishing to try this powder see jeff at gibrass.($80 for 8 pounds delivered)
