So im reading the load data on 45 acp and was wondering if a load calls for a 185 gr hornaday fmj can i keep the same load but instead of a 185 gr could i use a 200 gr as long as i keep the same bullet manufacture? thanks.
NO! By using a heavier bullet, you would be creating more pressure, if it where the other way around, ie; load recipe for 200 gr bullet and you wanted to switch to a 15gr lighter, you'd get less pressure, running the chance of a squibe load.
"Skin that one out, and I'll get ya another!
