5.5 Grs W-231 is hard to beat for a good all around .45 load.
AA #2, AA #5, WST, Competiton, Clays, WSF, all do well in the .45.

Use the FMJ all the time. They tend to be the cheapest of the fmj I can find. Seem to get reasonable results. I load them on the lighter side 230gr FMJ w231 5.0-5.2 oal 1.24 without issues out of a S&W 1911 5"

If you want to push them to the firewall, HS-6, Power Pistol, Unique, and AA#5 is how I fly. My current SD P220 loads are 230 Gold Dots, propelled by AA#5.

I load them with 5.8gr of Win 231 and a COL of 1.260".

I use 230 gr FMJ/RN Horn bullets (not HP). I use 7.5 grs of AA#5. This works for me. The load says "BIG, Heavy and Slow" - - All the things that say 45 ACP! haha
