Anyone loading 45 long colt with a 200 gr swc.
What are your results.
I have trailboss, be86, and bullseye as possible powders.
I'm getting excellent results with be86 and 255 swc.
Curious about a little more velocity particularly with trailboss.

I tried some 200gr LSWC's in a single action 45 Colt a while back. I was using TiteGroup because it was what I had the most of.
I wasn't thrilled with the 25 yard accuracy of the 200 gr bullets at all. It was more like a pattern than a group off a rest.
I think the 45 Colt just likes a heavier bullet, at least out of my single actions.

I am going to try some in near future. Have lots of Titegroup so will start with that.
