My two favorites:

Mild IPSC load: 5.0gr of Universal under a 180gr Berry's Plated RN. Goes around 975-1000 fps from my 1911.

Hotter load: 7.0gr of Longshot under 180gr XTP. Goes around 1050-1100 fps from my 1911.

5.0 Grs. of VV N330, 180 Gr. Montana Gold HP. Makes (USPSA) Major with a small cushion (170 PF) in both of our STI's (my wife and I). Groups well in both of those guns, and also from my daily carry 5" Kimber. When I shoot the Kimber in IDPA matches, this is the load I use.

I'll try to post more often, I would actually like to just be able to spend more time on the forum, but most of my days are spent at the range, working on guns, reloading, or shooting in matches.

I really like corresponding with all of you, and feel free to speak my mind, however I do refrain from posting when I feel that I cannot respond tactfully.

My opinions are as strong as yours Charlie.

Duty calls!

Hey Charlie...

I too have had good luck with Berry's 180 gr. plated and Universal. Out of a 3.5 inch barrel, 5.0 grains averages 877 fps; 5.2 grains does 906 fps; and 5.4 grains is chuggin' out of the station at 935 fps. Very clean burning.

Welcome aboard.

Missed you at the range today.

Now we can really work on convincing you to get a real gun.
