Rainier recommends using lead data, Berrys recommends jacketed. It doesn't really matter because 45acp isn't going to go above the velocity window recommended by either maker. Generally you want to stay below 1200 FPS, no problem for 45acp. A slight taper crimp is all you need for the cartridge anyway and you aren't going to crack the plating doing that.
For 45 they recommend not exceeding 850 to 900 FPS not 1200.
I don't ever remember being absent minded.
