I used 5.8 grains of 231 with a 200-grain SWC in my .45ACP to shoot major in IPSC. Out of laziness, I used that same powder charge in .44 Mag with 250-grain lead for plinkers in a Red Hawk. Felt like no recoil, but more oomph than the .45 on steel plates.

My pet '06 loads for 50 years have been 53.5 grains of 3031 behind a 110-grain bullet, and 52.5 grains of 4064 behind a 150-grain. I suggest starting some 3 grains below these, following good old General Principle's orders. Dunno why, but I've never used 4895...

Fun, ain't it?
