Still new, still learning...I checked three different sources for .45ACP loads for a 230gr remington FMJ-RN bullet.
Lyman 49th
230gr TMJ

Nosler
230gr FMJ

Lee(came with dies, so assume it's from their book)
230gr Jacketed Bullet
Win231 [email protected] [email protected]

Went to the Hodgdon site and it lists 4.2 to 5.3, for a Hornady FMJ Flat Point.

I figured I would start with the starting loads but not sure which one to go with since Lee and Hodgdon are starting much lower than the others....guess I could average the four and start at 4.6...is my thinking correct?

thanks for the help.

Thanks all for the info...I figure I'll do 5 rounds at 4.2 and 5 at 4.8 and then reevaluate and adjust as needed.
Just picked up another handgun...Sig 1911 XO, haven't even put a factory round thru it...because I couldn't find any yesterday locally...but I did find brass/primers/bullets.
