The 200 grain Bullet weight is my favorite in this Caliber! My Current IPSC Match load is 5.2 grains of Alliant Red Dot under a Berry's Plated Flat Point, which delivers about 840 fps from my PT945, 850 fps from my .45 Witnesses, and 865 fps from my Colt 1911.

I have conjured up +P loadings using Red Dot, Unique, and HS6. But these have been mostly for use with a Surplus Remington 185 grn JHP and my Mark 45 Carbine. I typically won't use them in handguns except for maybe my .45 Witnesses. Sorry, won't post the Load Data.

Some other 185 grn JHP Loadings:
5.8 grns of Red Dot - 980 fps
7.7 grns of Unique - 960 fps

Have also loaded the Remington Surplus 185 grn JSWC with 5.7 grns of Red Dot for a nominal 950 fps.

I also have used the Lyman #452460 200 grn cast SWC with 5 grains of Red Dot for a casual 800 fps. The PT945 won't feed SWC's, but all my other .45's do.
