Anyone using Ramshot's Silhoutte with hard cast bullets in a 45ACP? I have 4lbs of Silhoutte and it's an excellent 9mm powder. Ramshot lists Silhoutte for use in the 45 with lead bullets.

Just wondering how accurate and clean it is in a 45.

noylj,

Yes, I knew Silhoutte is the same as the older WAP designation. I read somewhere Silhoutte has a either a flash and/or smoke suppresant added, so I have not elected to use the older WAP data. However, I like the information you provided, especially the accuracy results. Very useful.

Thank you.

One of those "I need to try" powders. Wish I could help.

I love Silhouette in the 45. I use it with 230gr JHP with excellent results. Clean, accurate and exceptional velocity. Haven't tried it with lead yet.
