Recommend bullet weight

Post by Flytrap1 on Wed Nov 05, 2014 11:20 am

What would be the recommended bullet weight for .45 at a velocity between 750-800fps for indoor matches at 50' 185 or 200gr using cast swc bullets?

when I first started indoor shooting it was ppc league we shot 15 at 7 yards and 15 at 15 yards and 20 at 25 yards whit 185gr and 3.4 to 3.5gr BE don't know what fps that is but worked good for me.

Recently in another thread someone recalled a quote " A 1911 will shoot a single hole using lubed rocks at 50' "

Here is another thread that is looking at how slow they can go for a short line soft recoil.  http://www.bullseyeforum.net/t3341-45-200-gr-lswc-how-slow-can-do-you-go

So I'd look at the cheapest softest load that will cycle the gun.

whatever you can find cheap, 160,185 or 200 will all do a good job at that distance.

Pretty much concur with everyone else, anything that functions 100% and you're comfortable with.  You don't need perfect bullets like outdoor long line.

Indoors and outdoor short line I use a 195gr H&G 130 (happens to be what my lead mix drops out at) with mixed brass and 3.5-3.8 of either Clays or Bullseye crimped to .468.

Al, 

I no longer shoot matches, but I shoot in leagues and organized practices. I recently acquired a supply of commercial H&G 130s. A sample of 10 weighed from 189.2 to 190.
In the past I've shot many H&G 68 style, long nose bullets. 4.1g BE proved to be accurate. I'm thinking of dropping to 3.7g BE to accommodate the deeper seated bullet. It looks like I'd be right about where you are in terms of powder.

I'll report next week with results.
