I was wondering what you serious steel shooters on "The Firing Line" shoot for loads.
I'm not a serious steel shooter, but my go-to load for the .45 ACP is 4.6 grains of Bullseye under a 230 lead bullet. Flat point, round nose, take your choice. Range brass, anybody's primer. It gives me 900 fps from my 5" 1911 and is plenty good for any steel plate I might encounter.
