They dont allow us to shoot lead only at our indoor range DURING an IDPA match. The reason being is that our range is small and after each stage, we all walk down range to score/tape. Lead bullets smoke alot and they dont want us exposed to anymore lead particles than needed. Therefore I use the moly coated bullets. They dont smoke so much nor do they leave the lead in air that lead only does.
That is pretty much how was explained to me.
Ride hard and Shoot safe
The first rule of gunfighting should be to know when the gunfight starts - being the last one to get the news certainly won't put the odds in your favor.

My two favorite .45 ACP loads are:
230 FMJ round nose over 6.7 grains of Unique
185-200 grain (Lyman or H&G) cast lead SWC over 3.5 grains of Bullseye
My first choice is the Remington 2 1/2 primer. I've always enjoyed using Remington primers. For warmer loads I fancy that I can "read" them better. Remington primers can be tough to find though and I'll happily make do with whatever is available.

8gr of HS6 behind a 200gr LSWC is very accurate. On the low end of Hodgdon's data.
