45 Colt - Power Pistol

Anyone have load data for 45 Colt using Power Pistol? The bullet will be 230 gr. LRN.

Thanks,
Lou

ACP? or COLT? I have ACP data.

(Power Pistol not the best choice in 45 Colt.)

Try some Unique. I use 9 grs. with a 250 gr. hardcast flatpoint. Gives 1.5" groups at 25 yds with the Ruger Bisley.

Suggest best results in 45 Colt come with Starline (or Federal) cases, CCI (or Federal) primers, 250-255g (lead) bullets, and medium loads using Hodgdon Universal Clays.
Heavy loads prefer W296.

ALL medium to heavy loads should be crimped with the REDDING Profile Crimp die.
