    250g FMJ Round Nose.45 ACP

    What loads are you guys running with this heavy tip? None of my manuals have anything over 230g, and I have yet to check out any websites.

    If you're going to carry one weapon, might as well carry two, because as the saying goes, "Two is one, and one is none."

    I'm not positive but that may be for 45 long colt not 45 acp,whats the diameter of the bullet,if it's over.452 I would bet its for the colt

    I found a few loads for the 250grain Hornady 250grain bullet

    http://www.reloadammo.com/45cload.htm

    As noted when you scroll down to the load you want there is a NOTE OF CAUTION WITH THE .452 JACKETED BULLET..Looks like a very high pressure load to me.

    I cannot find a load in any of my books for a .452 bullet OTHER THAN LEAD... All jacketed loads are for .451 bullets..for handgun rounds...

    The 45 long colt uses a .454 bullet diameter,if that bullet is .454 diameter it will not work in a 45 ACP

    Either I've been living in a cave for 40 years, but in all this time of shooting, I've never heard of this weight bullet for the .45 ACP.

    It might me due to the fact that I don't reload and are not up to date, or the info.the OP provided is just wrong.

    That bullet if it is .451 may of been developed for the 45 win mag "winchester magnum"case,the LAR grizzly was the first gun IIRC to chamber that round

    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    I'm sorry I wasn't clear. Those Hornady tips that boscobeans mentioned were
    the ones I was looking into.


    Thanks guys!

    I'll be looking into the 45 LC when I pick up one of these new Taurus Judges soon.

    I shoot 250g .452 lead round nose bullets in my 1911 for IDPA. I like the shofter feel of the recoil.

    PM if your need a load for it - sorry i don't shoot jacketed

    wow, that is a big one for the old 1911a1. but if it is around .452 then it should work.
