Have some West Coast (plated) 200gr semi wad cutters on the way, 45acp. Have some Power Pistol. Am new to both. (Have done Rainier (plated) 230gr round nose with AA#5.)

Anyone care to offer a starting powder weight? Am not trying to kill bears, just want to be accurate and above power factor floor.

Thanks.

I've been loading the West Coast 200 gr SWC, and the combo that I've found that works is: Winchester 231, 5.6 gr, and Whichester Primers. I've shot these thru all my 1911's my Glock 21, HK USP, and have found no failures in over 2000 rounds. Just remember to check with a load book before starting.

Try 6.0g, and use a chrono.
