IMR 4756 for 45

Anybody every use 4756 in 45 ACP?

I use it in 38 super and 40 and love it but have not seen alot of folks talk about it in 45. I know it's alot slower than Bullseye, and though that might make it a nice soft recoil load.

Hodgdon does list a few .45 ACP/4756 recipes in it's IMR listings for assorted bullet weights, up to 8.2 gr for some 200 grainers at 900+ fps, and 7.2 gr for 230 fmj at 790 fps...

(seems useable, but requiring about 2 grains more than Unique for similar velocities)

Double check these, of course!

It's my "old reliable"

I've been loading .45 ACP (and many others) with it since 1972, and after trying many of the other powders, I always end up coming back to it in the end. It is a great powder for .45 ACP and the .38 Super you mentioned.
