That was a quick load development session for the 45 GAP. A couple of grains of BE topped with a Rainier 200 gr plated HP. I had several loads worked up, the middle one worked great. What amazed me about the round were the chrono stats. 893 Avg FPS with a 13FPS ES and a 9 SD. (plus very good accuracy at 50'). I had seen low numbers from the Speer factory ammo, so I had somewhat of a benchmark. For the record, I beat the Speer numbers. I've never been able to get that kind of ballistic consistency from 45 ACP. I really like that round. It's super easy to load. Uses SP, so I don't need to change primer assemblies. An easy case to light up and see the powder charge. Almost impossible to double charge the case (a double charge of even BE would almost overflow the case). It all happened so quick, I may just try again with Unique and Power Pistol. However, I'm not sure I could beat those numbers (or the accuracy). Gotta find me a bunch more of those Rainiers.
