I know this may be the wrong place but. Why is the Hodgdon long shot reloading data so conservitve ? I have started loading SD rounds for my 45acp and I get 965 fps out of 7.6 grains of Longshot with a Hornady 230 XTP and Remington brass with no signs of over preasure what so ever useing a box stock 5 inch Springfield 1911-A1 parkerized pistol. I have tryed 7.8 and and got 985fps still no signs of over preasure. I'm sticking with 7.6 because it will be easyer on my guns . Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
