I use BD in .357 magnum, .44 magnum, 10mm and 9mm. I'm a little long on my supply of BD. I was reloading .45 ACP this weekend and I was thinking of giving it a try just to change it up. I could only find loads listed in two reference guides for 230 gr. FMJ : My Lee book listed 8.5 gr. BD as both the starting and max load. The Alliant guide shows 8.5 gr. as max with a starting load at 10% less. I didn't use any. Instead I fell back to my old reliable 5 gr. of Bullseye. I know it's probably not an ideal powder for .45. Anybody use it? How's it run?
