rcmodel, have you chronoed that 6.0 of Unique? I tried that and that load felt very hot in my 5" Kimber. It does have a weak spring though.

5.6gr of WW231. Gives around 810-840fps out of most 5" barrels and is clean-burning and easy to shoot.

6.8 to 7.0 gr of Power Pistol gives around 850-880fps out of most 5" barrels. Also clean burning, definitely not too hot, but has some muzzle-flash, if that matters.

rcmodel, have you chronoed that 6.0 of Unique?No, but it has been one well known "Factory Duplication" GI hardball load for at least 50 or more years.
