does anyone use Accurate #5 for a 230 gr. JHP (Winchester bullet) load? I cannot find one for a JHP, I have found the FMJ data. Should I try the FMJ data?


ps for some reason the search feature will not do a search for "accurate #5"

My Accurate Arms #1 Manual shows a starting load of 7.8 grains of #5 for a 230 grain FMJ bullet. Max is 8.7 grains.

Just noticed the first page is for the .45 in a carbine. The loading data for regular pistol is the same (second scanned page).

I'm using 7.8 under a Hornady 230 JHP and it's seems to be a really sweet spot for my Kimbers and Springfield XD's. FWIW.

Have a goo done,
Dave

8.5 Grs of AA #5, a WLP primer, and a Zero 230 Gr JHP @ 1.245 O.A.L. gave me an Avg 859 FPS from a 4" barreled 1911 on an 85 Degree day with very good accuracy. Thats right close to max by Accurates on line data.

This load was safe in my gun using my load technique. Reduce 10% to start.
