    Anyone load and shoot these in their G21? Going to buy some and wondering how well they shoot/feed. Loading over IMR 700X.

    I load both coated and uncoated for both my 1911's and G21SF. When the uncoated are all gone it will be only coated.

    I load them so the bearing surface is about 1/16" above the case mouth, crimp to .469-.470". 5grs should get you in the 850fps range. Great target load.

    Thanks. Getting ready to order my 550b .45 conversion and jump in. Will order the SNS variety.

    I am starting to use the SNS coated almost exclusively for my target shooting. I really like their product, well run company, good pricing, excellent communications, etc.

    Good luck, tell us how you do along the way.

    I would get the round nose over the SWC. I have had the least amount of trouble with the round nose.

    SWC can be problematic in Glocks. If you don't have other .45s you could run them in I would buy as small of an amount as you can to test out first.

    SNS doesn't offer less than 500.

    Try bayou bullets. They have samples amounts.

    I will buy them from you if we can't make them work in your gun. My G21SF eats them perfectly.

    In fact, I had some Xtreme copper plated SWC's that I did have problems with a few of my 1911's, I shot them up with my G21.

    Plant any extras in the garden and you will get boolit plants.

    In that case I would order 500 or 1000. Should work in the 1911 if the Glock don't like them.

    My go to target load for a long time was a 200gr LSWC loaded over 4.6gr of 700x. My G21 ate them up!!

    I've shot quite a bit of Bayou Bullets 200 gr. LSWC with no issues, using Unique and W231. They have a green coating on them, and are not smoky when you shoot.
