Yep ... I have and they worked well ... IIRC, I even pushed them to 460 Rowland levels without problems ... but I would have to look that up in my records. At 45acp levels, they are definitely good.

45 ACP Loads

Here are a couple loads for 45 ACP that I have found are especially accurate in my Kimber Custom II Target model:

Penn's Bullet, 200 gr LSWC, .451 dia.
4.2 gr Bullseye
1.235" OAL
790 fps
Results: 1.5" group at 30 ft

Berry's Bullet, 185 gr plated RN Hollow Base
5.3 gr Win 231 (Starting Load = 5.0 gr; Max Load = 5.5gr)
1.375" OAL
771 fps
Results: very near 1.5" group at 30 ft (better results with Bullseye)
This is a great bullet if you gun have feeding problems with SWC or HP. Other than punching a ragged hole in paper targets, it looks like most ball ammo but shoots with the accuracy of SWC.
