Acurate 45 ACP

Young Gun,

A lot of us bullseye shooters use 200 gr lead SWC in our 1911's. Although accurate loads can vary from gun to gun, here's a good starting load:

200 gr LSWC from Penn's Bullets, .451 dia; 4.2 gr Bullseye, 1.235" OAL. Should give you about 790 fps. You could drop down a few pounds from the stock 16 lb spring.

If your 1911 has trouble cycling SWC, try Berry's 185 gr plated round nose, hollow base bullets. Nearly as accurate as SWC but will feed like a 230 gr FMJ.
