    It's the one on the right in the photo, (This post should be titled BDacp). These pop up adds at the bottom of the screen are certainly annoying

    Lee 230gr TCs works great in any pistol I've tried. Thier 200gr swc works well in 1911s, but doesn't run so hot in Sig P220s.

    I am over the moon, with my 4 cavity MP Mold 452-200 RF
    Throws 205 gr HP , came with round and penta, or 215 gr solid.

    +1 on the Lee TC PhatForrest posted ! I have the solid from Lee, and got a HP conversion, of the Lee mold, from Erik at hollowpointmolds. That HP casts about 215 gr. They were my do all until I scored the MP.

    Not the heavy weights that you were looking at, and just short of Lees 230 gr tier.

    Mt Gianni beat me to the punch. Its really hard to beat the 452460.

    I do shoot a lot of 452389 for light practice.

    I have used the 200 H&G design with 452 AA now WST for years. You can use 231 for a bit more snap, but good accuracy. I gave up on Unique because it burns so dirty, especially in practice sessions involving hundreds and hundreds of rounds. The WST looks more like the gun was never shot.

    I shoot in matches involving minor and major loads. With major, the general idea is to have a low extreme spread and standard deviation, then run the accuracy loads just over for a bit of leeway when testing for or at a match.

    I’m with Rapier. The Lyman 452374 is an H&G 68 200 grain clone that runs flawlessly in my 1911s, pushed by WST.

    Are you ABSOLUTELY certain about that statement?
    We Know Mass Cannot Be Weighed But It Has Newtonian Weight And That Is Derived From Kilograms And Kilograms Can Be Converted to Pounds. But, Still Mass Cannot Be Weighed. But How is the kilograms obtained? Can Kilograms Be Weighed? Evidentally Yes It Can. But, Still Mass Cannot Be Weighed So Kilograms Must Not Exist. Funny Isn't It.
    One good thing out of this the next time I'm at the doctors and they want to weigh me I'll tell them mass cannot be weighed.

    #68 is no where near the same profile as the 452374. The Lyman “round ball” profile is what won WWII. Lol If it was good enough for Dad it’s good enough for me. Only change I made in his Colt bring back was I got MiHec clone and now I have hollow point 452374’s. Best all around .45 projectile. IMHO

    I have a beautiful 230gr WFN mold for the 45ACP, I'll have to see what mold it is. Looking for someone to cast some for me.

    Are we looking at a typo here? The 452423 typically comes in around 230-240grains depending on alloy. Lyman 454424 is a bit heavier at 250-260 grains.

    And there have been many threads about getting heavyweights to go in a 1911.

    Clearly my head was where the sun doesn’t shine when I wrote that. I’ve cast a ton of 452374s and the number sounded right. That’s what I get for not verifying. I’ll check my molds and see what my 200 grain SWC actually is.

    My sincere apologies! The 200 grain SWC mold I have is a Saeco 069. I’m sure about it now.

    I started handloading in 1970 and dove into casting in 1973. A local reloader was leaving casting and moving into swaging. I bought his furnace, sizer and 10 or 11 sets of molding blocks for one money. Among those blocks was a 4-cavity Lyman 452460 pattern which has been and still is my favorite 200 grain 45 acp boolit. Loaded over Unique powder this boolit delivers everything I could ask for out of any 1911.
