Even though this post treads on reading between the lines of published data.
The powder for hot .45 ACP is AA#7.
From the Accurate Arms loading manual, 11.0 grains is the maxload for a 230 grain bullet, and it exceeds 1000 FPS. I found the accuracy at 10.7 grains.
Tell me more!
Any data let’s say for 215gr LSWC ???
So, 11.25gr AA#7 to drive the 215gr LSWC (splitting the difference between 200 and 230 published data’s) I should get 1000 fps . What are the benefits (thinking cost/gr vs. performance) to use a larger volume of powder?
