X-Treme Bullets at the range

Post by greener » Mon Mar 10, 2014 8:15 am

Loaded their 230gr copper plated .45 on 6gr of Unique. No problems with the load, fire, eject cycle. Consistency at 15 yards was good. I fired 3 1911's and a Ruger P90.

These were the first coated/plated reloads I've done in years. The guns didn't report themselves as stolen because they weren't firing lead. Also, this is the first time I've loaded .45 with Unique in quite a while. It worked well. I'm not sure why I stopped using it on .45 other than Universal worked well and I've been sticking to that.

You probably stopped using it for the same reason I did, meters like crap. I was getting a ±0.2 gr swing. It's enough to notice when shooting. Where my ball powders are dead on.
