I reload for my 45 using 200swc(lead)can
anyone tell me if the roundnose lead will give the same or better accuracy.

I have had the best luck with SWC.

We have a criminal jury system which is superior to any in the world;
and its efficiency is only marred by the difficulty of finding twelve men
every day who don't know anything and can't read.

The 230 shoots ok but my best accuracy comes from 200 grain swc in front of WST.

I find that if you are competition shooting / paper punching, then the SWC cuts cleaner holes to give an undeniable score reading. Using 230 gn Round Nose tears the paper, and you may be able to obtain a higher score that way,(if no-one uses a scoring plug). I only use SWC for all of my loads.

SWCs work best for me in light target loads. I do use 230gr LRN for a cheap full power practice load. Different bullets with different applications.

There's no such thing as too much love, too much money or too much ammo.

FACT : only way to tell is in your gun.

I have better results using 200g LSWC in my 1911, but my EAA Witness seems to shoot every bullet well (just doesn't feed them reliably).
