    I am probably going to buy these when I use up my current supply. Looking for input from people who have used this bullet. Also, load data for what you have found works best for you. I would be shooting these out of a 5 inch Kimber. Thanks

    These load and shoot wonderfully with 4.0gn of Clays through my CZ 97. I reloaded my first 45ACP rounds using these bullets, so I can't compare them to any others accuracy wise. I know they shoot better than cheap factory ball rounds. In fact, I am about to go buy more right now.

    I'm using these and really like them. I'm using 4.7 WST, I get a little leading I don't think I'm pushing them fast enough. I'm going to try their Cowboy #4 next time and see if the leading goes away (it is the same bullet but softer).

    I have used 2.7 to 5.5 grains of Trailboss and 2.8 to 4.2 grains of Bullseye with that bullet. 3.5 grains Trailboss is very clean and accurate and will cycle most 1911's with the standard spring. 3.6 grains Bullseye is good as well, but you might have to go to a lighter spring, like 10-LB. The 200 LSWC Bullseye No. 1 is a better bullet for me in a 1911 with the same charges. A little more accurate and feeds a little better than the RNFP. I am shooting a Colt Special Combat Government and a Colt Model 70 government.

    I'm running these under 5.2gr of WST at 1.225 OAL out of my XD-45.

    I'm getting about 785 fps.

    I like 'em!

    I tried the Cowboy #4 and it shoots nicely. IIRC, I've used both Bullseye and Universal with no problems. I don't remember charge weights...check the manual or websites and you can get the numbers. I've crimped both to the groove and where it sits above the brass with no noticable difference.

    I've used them with TrailBoss, Unique, Bullseye, and Tightgroup in .45ACP and .45LC. Very happy with them and I will be ordering ALOT more of them. Better than FMJ ball by a mile in the ACP.
