I have first-hand knowledge of ACME bullets.  Their 200gr LSWC are as accurate as any of the others I have shot.  The mould looks like H&G 68. They are a little on the hard side.  My memory tells me they weigh in around 195gr (lube removed) where softer bullets in the same mould come in around 205gr.  Even at that hardness they don't lead my barrel.  I load them over 3.8gr BE and Winchester LPP.

I pick up the acme bullets at thier facility. Great company and owners to deal with. the bullets are pricey, because they come in a fancy box, but they are of certified lead. I was there when they got a shipment of lead in and they had to shutdown the road! I am having issues with the 185's ripping holes in targets rather than cut. I have only used them for the 50' line. the 200's seemed better when I had some. as rob said, they are a bit hard, and wide. I believe they will adjust a batch to a different size if there is a big order.

ripping holes would mean they are loaded to light, imo, how are you loading them

I would bump it to 4.3, the harder the bullet the more powder it takes to swell the bullet to get it fully seated in the refiling and fully able to obturate.

Here is some good info on hardness, and other lead bullet related items on revolver and autos including 1911s.

Steer clear of Friendswood!!! I placed an order with them last year and have NEVER received my order nor have they replied to numerous emails or telephone messages. They processed my CC as soon as they received the order. They took my money and ripped me off. FRAUD ALERT!!!
