Very nice....

I have a Kimber Stainless Target II set up as a multi-caliber gun and one of the rounds it will take in the .45 Super. Have been using 245-255 grain Keith type bullets at 1050 and have had no problems with feeding.

Thinking about it...this is running faster than the original Colt .45 load from a SAA that the cavalry said could shoot all the way through a horse...

Bulldozer!
Donít carry these if you are concerned with over penetration hits on bystanders (which is almost non existent). Really donít carry them if you miss a lot!

That's some impressive performance for the .45 ACP. Have you had any problems with stripping on those hard cast bullets in the shallow .45 ACP rifling? I like the WFN profile, but that's why I used the jacketed FMJ-FP Hornady for so many years because it didn't strip.

A little bit. I'm going to have them sized to .452 net time and see if that helps.

Whatever happened to the Hornady FMJ-FP? It looks like they stopped making it.
