Anyone shoot for accuracy anymore? Seems like everyone is into shooting as many rounds as they can as fast as they can........and not hit anything.

I need some PET loads .45 ACP 185 and 200 grain. Going for ACCURACY, 25-50 yards like in the old days. 5" 1911

please??

I do. I handgun hunt and load on a single stage press.

My pet load for the ACP is 230 gr ball with win 231 powder. Right around 5 grains of powder is the sweet spot. I never shoot the lighter bullets.

My .44's love Win 296.

Any details on the bullet and primer?

Please indicate whether loads are with large or small primers since 45 ACP brass comes in both forms.

Not a single person, so far, has said that they used Unique as their powder of choice. I use it for both my hand guns and my carbine in 45ACP; with large primers. Years ago, Unique was a pretty dirty powder, but they seem to have changed the formula to where the new stuff runs just as clean as some of the others I've tried. I also use Unique when I build by snake shot rounds for my 45 Colt.
My second choice is another "old" powder: Bullseye. Me thinks I'm out of the mainstream here. . .
