I am reloading 230 gr FMJ in 45 ACP using Power Pistol. All loads have a COL of 1.275".

IDPA requires a power floor of 165,000 (bullet weight X average FPS) for CDP class.

Reloading with 6.4 gr of PP I achieved an average of 768 fps (PF= 176,640)
Reloading with 6.8 gr of PP I achieved an average of 821 fps (PF= 188,945)
Reloading with 7.2 gr of PP I achieved an average of 855 fps (PF= 199,203)

I used CCI LP primers. Gun used was a Dan Wesson Heritage 5" 1911.

I will be reloading at 6.4 gr of PP.

Remember, with a heavy bullet (230 gr) you do not need to load a particlarly hot load in order to get so impressive power factor numbers.
