     GUN DETAILS   1911-A1
     OTHER DESCRIPTION  Another good economical load, and fun to shoot! Use 6 grains for a soft target load, or 7 grains if you prefer your target loads with a little more power. 7 grains replicates a duty/self-defense load pretty well, for practice purposes.

     GUN DETAILS   Ruger Redhawk, 7.5 barrel
     OTHER DESCRIPTION  Bullet is seated to deepest cannelure, base just touches powder. Heavy crimp.

    Good load! One of my most accurate. Recoil surprisingly mild - a nice "thumper" load.

    Tends to shoot high - muzzle jump.
    Great for metal plate targets!

     OVERALL LENGTH   1.60
     GUN DETAILS   Ruger Redhawk; double action, 7.5" barell.
     OTHER DESCRIPTION  It is difficult getting good subsonic loads with heavy bullets in 45C. But this one nails it - VERY consistent and accurate. Nowhere near max, but use ONLY in strong guns like Ruger and TC! This fills the case about 80%, 1.4cc powder. I am investigating heavier bullets and other powders, will post here when get good loads.
