Keith shapes for 357, 44 and 45 Colt.
I recommend the PM45-200HG (H&G68) for the 45ACP

Missouri Bullets has a large choice available in various BRN hardness ratings. Their 180gr in .357dia is excellent for .357maximum loads.

You may or may not want to rethink the LSWC in 45ACP. I have three 45ACPs. A Colt 1911, Ruger –p90, and a Sig 220. Years ago I was told the 1911 would not feed LSWC, of the three guns the 1911 has fired hundreds with out any sign of a problem. The Ruger and Sig, not so much, I sold the mold and bought the Lyman 225 Gr, round nose, I have had zero feed problems with the round nose bullet in any of these guns. I experimented with a variety of alloys, with some being very hard bullets with the LSWC mold, and still had the occasional stovepipe, some Semi-autos just don’t like LSWC

I have a Colt series 70 gov that does not like the swc design. My Marlin Camp will tolerate swc with the shortest possible col. I have no problems with RN, TC,HP, ect. from either.

The gun I want to shoot the lswc's in is a Colt Gold Cup series 70 national match, which I believe was designed to shoot lswc in competition. I had one of these guns years ago and it fed lswc's just fine. I recently acquired this one. I hope it feeds as well as my old one did.
