    Interesting data
    I had to go up to 7.5gr unique to get a 200gr XTP or Gold dot to hit 1050 with my HK45CT (4.6”)
    Lead is definitely a lot faster

    That seems about right. Lead is usually 100fps faster

    At an estate sale a few months back in addition to a bunch of CCI primers and virgin 45-70 brass, I also got two unopened 100ct bags of Magtech 250gr LRNFP .452. Silly me, being new to 45-70, I thought it would make a nice powder puff load, but I later found out not so much. I was wondering if I can load these up an run the through my 4506-1 and USP45F as either .45acp loads or .45Super loads.

    I ran 255 LSWCs in 45 Auto a few times in USPSA with no issues other than they were pretty slow - seemed like I was shooting a mortar lobbing them in. Went back to 185 or 200 LSWC but no issue getting 255s to work.

    I had a pretty bouncy load based on those that I blame for cracking the slide of a buddy’s Megastar, but that was after a couple thousand rounds. I think you’re ok.

    This has worked in every .45 Auto I've tried it in (S&W M&P45 FS, HK USP FS, Dan Wesson full size 1911, Kimber commander size, Ruger LW CMD) except the Kahr CW45. The Dan Wesson owner was particularly impressed.

    Finished chronographing and had 4 left.

    Would use these with discretion to prevent excessive wear.

    FWIW,

    In the massive reloading estate buy I did in '19 is a good quantity of 255 grain .452 sized bullets. These will be tried in my 1911s since there is no .45 Colt revolver in the house.
    Appreciate the load data.
