Ran some .45 acp on the new chrono

I was testing for my Competition loads. I just bought a new CE Digital Pro Chrono and a bog pod to mount it on. Worked very good for my purposes. I do not have another chrono to test against until I shoot with a buddy of mine in a few weeks. All were accurate, one big ragged hole. Shooting was close (10yds). It is very windy here today and overcast, temps in the high 30's.

Pistol is a Ruger SR1911

String 1) A#5 7.8gr
200gr Rainier plated SWC
814 822 avg
816 20 ES
819 7 SD

String 2) A#5 8.1gr
200gr Rainier plated SWC
874 845 avg
826 48 ES
834 15 SD

String 3) Tightgroup 4.8gr
200gr Rainier plated SWC
866 846 avg
836 62 ES
845 21 SD

I did not get near Accurate's published numbers but it may be because of the temp.

Thanks for the effort. I've recently loaded some 200 grn plated RN for my 45's so I'm interested in the numbers. I did use Titegroup with about 1/2 my loads( H Universal for the rest) but I didn't use the chrony with them.

Joy of Handloading

You did not get Accurate's numbers because you tested your components from your gun with your equipment in your environment.

But you still got good numbers.
