45 Colt & WST powder

Has anyone tried this combo with a 200 - 255 gr LSWC? I haven't been able to locate any data on this load and am looking for a starting point. The WST seems to work great in ACP and I'd like to give it a try with long brass. Thanks

That powder is too fast. Don't waste your time. Get a can of Unique or Blue Dot. That's my opinion.

Most charts show the WST +/- 231 & unique which seems to do a good job with the colt. Just wondering if anyone had tried it yet.

This past weekend I used 6.0 grains of Bullseye with a 200 grain LSWC and turned in some 1.5 inch groups at 25 yards. Haven't tried the WST.
