Wow, picked some of this up to try. noticed it said 980fps!!

Pulled a bullet and found 8.1 gr's of a flat disc powder.

Any idea's of what their loading.

(Yes, I know the disclaimer, canister powder, yada-yada)

Unique would be about that charge for that velocity.

I went to a power factor table (USPSA) and found to make major with a 45acp 185 gr bullet you must be pushing it at least 892 fps.  If you run a compensated barrel you might lose some velocity so 10% safety factor seems reasonable.
