    .45 and Titegroup

    I've been reloading for quit awhile now but I've only loaded for 9mm and .40 S/W and have used Titegroup exclusivly. I just bought a PT 1911 so now I'm gonna start loading for .45. I already have some Hornady 230 grn. fmj and 230 grn. XTPs. Does Titegroup work well with the .45?

    There are a number of powders you can use for 45 ACP. Tite Group is one of them and works well. You will want to try several loads with different powders to determine what gives you the best accuracy. I use Tite group for 9mm, 40SW, 38Super. 357, and 38 Special. I get good results and the real benefit is more rounds per pound generally. As always, you should consult your reloading data for the best info.

    Yes ! I just ran 100 rounds through my PT1911 with 200 grain Hornady XTP hollowpoints, and they worked great with Titegroup. I say let 'er rip !

    That's good news for me too. I have a few pounds of titegroup and a couple thousand projectiles to load up.

    Another great thing about the venerable old .45ACP it ain't so picky on powders like the smaller case cartridges, I gave had great success with bullseye, unique, herco, 230, 2400, green/red dot and many more....

    A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship.



    Does that sound familiar??? Wake up America!

    Update: I ordered a set of .45acp dies from Midway USA last Sunday and they arrived Weds. Last night I made 8 test rnds. using 4.4 grns of titegroup. Tonight after work I walked out to my range and they worked fine but grouped about 4" and the brass landed right beside me so I didn't get too excited. After I had supper I went to the bench and made 4 rnds with 4.5 grns. and seated them to 1.200. Back out to my range I went, and this time I got excited. Those rnds. grouped about 1 1/2" and the brass landed about 4 to 5' to my right. I was shooting 10 yrds. I went against my own advice that I give everybody about testing from a solid rest to see how a gun shoots. Now I'm not sure whether to stop here or up the charge another 10th. Man! I love this gun!

    It doesn't always play nice with lead bullets and it burns very hot.
    Have fun with it, but there are "better" powders.

    Unless you are a robot you know that shooting from a rest is going to give a better indication of accuracy. Shooting off hand is part of the process as well to see what other factors like muzzle flip/recovery time between shots is. For me that always follows establishing that the shot is accurate. If not - why proceed?!
    If we choose, we can live in a world of comforting illusion.
