I came into some 230gr gold dots and am looking for a load. If anyone had one using Win 231 it would be great because thats what I have. Also if you could give me the COAL it would be greatly appreciated.

Speer manual #13 gives a minimum of 5.0 and a maximum of 5.6 with W-231. It was the lowest velocity load they showed. 765 FPS - O.A.L. 1.200

------------------------------
Blue Dot gave 893 - O.A.L. 1.200

minimum 8.1 and maximum 9.0
-------------------------------
Power Pistol gave 881 - O.A.L. 1.200

minimum 6.3 and maximum 7.4
-------------------------------
HS 7 gave 849 - O.A.L. 1.200

minimum 8.5 and maximum 9.5
-------------------------------
N340 gave 836 - O.A.L. 1.200

minimum 5.4 and maximum 6.1
-------------------------------

I would suggest investing in the Speer #14 manual. :)

I shoot 230 GDHP all the time. My standard load is 5.6gr of 231 at the (standard factory) OAL of 1.200". This gives me around 820FPS out of 5" 1911s.
