.45 Colt loads

1st. post on this forum. I'm looking for some data for .45 Colt loads using 250gr. Lswc (soft lead) bullets with titegroup. I read somewhere that you should not use the same data for hard lead bullets. All of the info I can find using titegroup is for hard lead. Has anyone else heard this or have any info on it.
Thanks Q.C.

Funny you should post this, as I was just dinking around with 45 colt reloads tonight. I casted about 200 - 220 gr .456 pills that I have been using with unique with excellent results.

I have a 255 gr mold that I use WW with and again I use Unique. If it helps at all, I charge it with 8 gr and seat it to the seating groove. I'm using it in a 45 lc / .410 NEF combo that I had a scope mounted on, so it is a work in progress.

Not to pry, but does the tite group burn a tad cleaner than the unique?

From Hodgdon: 5.0-6.2grs for 716-881fps. This should be on their website also. Good luck
