    Agreed. 700X in .32, .38, 9mm, 45 ACP.
    OK folks, there is only two ways to do this. My way or my other way.

    Hello: Best recipe for my Ballester Rigaud (Same pistol as Ballester Molina .45 ACP but different name.) has been PC’ed soft lead Lee 200gr SWC over 4.1gr Bullseye/COAL 31.7mm/Local Imaz LP primers. Hope it helps.

    I believe Bill Wilson tests his 1911's with 4.8 Bullseye under a 200gr H&G 68.

    My Ballester Molina is featured in the pic for this thread. I want to thank your countrymen's ancestors for building it just for me! My everyday load for it is 5 grains of Bullseye under a 200 grain swc bullet.

    Thanks Thomas, nice to hear you are enjoying your Ballester Molina. I am very fond of it too. I will try your pet load. May be I get better results with it!

    4.6 to 4.7 WST, 200 grain lead, makes 825 FPS for me.

    Good evening.
    Well I have put a lot of H&G #68 boolits through my 45's over the years. I have used countless pounds of BE, Red Dot, Green Dot, Unique, WW 231, WST, Auto Comp, AA#5, #7 and silhouette. All tested in a Ransom rest for accuracy. During the shortage of powder a couple of years ago. One powder always available at decent pricing was TiteWad. It was half the price of 231 and about a third of BE. Bought a jug, pulled out the Ransom rest and proceeded to work up a load. I shoot shortline only now so I only worked up a load for that. 4.2grs BE with, 30WW/70Pb H&G#68, TL'd White Label 45/45/10, was my control. 1.46 inch average for 5 groups, 10 shots each group. Same boolits... TiteWad 3.3grs 1.53 inch average for 5 10 shot groups out of the Ransom rest. Went back and bought 20 pounds!! Have been shooting the same scores as I was before.
    Your results might be different than mine.....but I doubt it
