After loading with Bullseye, Power Pistol, 700x, Unique, and a whole slew of other powders I think I have finally settled upon a load for my .45s that shoots well in all of them, and terrifically in my RIA CS. I purchased on a whim a month or two ago a 5lb jug of AA#2. It was real cheap and I was making a large order from powder valley. They were out of bullseye, so I went with AA#2, which I had wanted to try for a long time anyway. I loaded up some test rounds, using a Missouri Bullet 230gr LRN dubbed "Softball" by Brad at Missouri Bullet. I have found this bullet to be a good shooting bullet in the past with almost any powder. I have been using Fed, Win, or Wolf primers, but as I have a ton of wolf primers I based this load on those. I am also using winchester brass. Looking at the published data I found an average of 5.0gr starting with a 5.6gr max. Being the lee freak that I am I got out my Autodisk to see what I could throw in that range. One of the cavities threw a perfect 5.2gr. I figured I would load some of these, and go shoot 5 groups of 5 to see what they would do. I also loaded these to a OAL of 1.230" which is around .030" shorter than I usually load this bullet to, also on a whim. What I found was astounding. All groups, fired from an 3.5" 1911 at 15 yards were great. Three of the 5 groups were one hole groups, the others were very tight. I know the gun is good, and I am a good shot with it, but this was also the very first time I ever tried the powder combo. Generally speaking, I take at least three to four whacks at a good target load before I settle on it, changing powder charge, OAL, and sometimes even the primer used to get it where I want it. This was the first time ever that I have just put something together to find, at least what I feel, is perfection. Needless to say, all of my 45 target loads will now be loaded with AA#2. Oh, if anyone out there hasnt tried this powder before it makes a great 38/357 wadcutter powder also! I load in 357 cases a DEWC from Missouri Bullet over 3.0gr of it, and its a good shooting near zero recoil load. ETA: I guess I better say up front, these were LRN, so the holes were nicely TORN. I am not claiming to have shot one hole .75" group or anything like that. Just one ragged hole type thing. Rather good for a compact 3.5" 1911 at 15 yards.
