    Hey Glocksters,

    I'm looking for a recipe for 45acp using bullseye......

    Traget/IDPA Load, using Berry's 230 gr plated rn, w/cci LP Primers.

    Guns are Kahr cw45, and RIA 5" 1911 ....

    5gr of Bullseye under a 230gr ball is the classic hardball load. Well, since around 1910, I guess. ;)

    I think there are books which have this and other loads listed, along with all kinds of other useful info, like OAL and stuff...

    5gr Bullseye has always worked for me with my Zero 230gr FMJ bullets.

    as usual: db check and cross reference all data.
    not proposing this for you
    follow all mfg instructions and fold tissue 2x before wiping.

    I use 5.0gr of BE in my 230 gr FMJ.
    For my Lead RN and Rainier 230 gr RN type bullets I use 4.4gr of BE.

    I thought Barry's were plated????? so supposed to use lead load data, not jacketed data??? This is why I load my Rainier plated same as lead loads.

    My 4.4gr of Bullseye with the lead and plated (Rainier) 230gr RN runs in all my 45 autos really well: Glocks, Colt, Ed Brown.

    Finally, IDPA, I don't know their requirements, so don't know if these loads will meet their requirements.
