For concealed carry I prefer #1 Heritage (IWB) holsters from Milt Sparks. For OWB carry, I prefer their #55BN holsters but the #60TK rides slightly higher if you like that better.

WRONG. H110 is same as Win296 powder, MUCH DIFFERENT from Win 231. If Win 231 is not available, Bullseye is an old favorite which still works well in .45 ACP.

Ditto!! The electronic scale is quicker and easier for my (old) eyes to read BUT I TRUST the beam scale more because it works using gravity which has far less problems than electronic circuits.
