255 gr lswc

Post by orpheoet on 11/23/2014, 12:14 pm

I posted about these earlier this week. My mistake, they are semi wadcutters. I loaded them with 3.1 grains of Bullseye. Went to the range and figured I'd kill 2 birds with 1 stone by trying them out with slow fire practice. First shot dead center in 10 ring. They seem pretty accurate for me. Whats the heaviest bullet people use in Bullseye? This was indoor. Still looking for load data on these. Dardas sells something very similar so I cant be the only person useing these! I bought these for pin shooting, I'm just wondering if they might work for bullseye.

Most bullseye shooters don't go over 230gr. but go ahead and shoot them if that's what you have.
A 1911 can shoot lubed rocks 50feet and still clean the target.


I can't find any load data for the 250gr LSWC in .45acp.  That bullet is used for .45LC and other .45 revolvers but you are loading off the book with that bullet--so be careful.


Your pressures will be higher because that bullet has more surface area and the unfilled case volume is smaller.

I found some loads for the 250gr L-SWC for the auto-rim and loads for the acp in 260 gr fmj in the speer manual. # 13

I load them with 5.5 gr of Green Dot in AR cases for bowling pin shoots at my club.

Orphoet,
In all of my manuals, the auto rim loads are hotter and higher pressure than for .45acp.  Play it safe.
