    I have been shooting the MB .45, "Target" 12 BHN 200 LSWC for a few years now with great results. I have been upping my charge rates in the past year and decided to step up to the MB .45, 18 BHN 200 LSWC.

    I did some accuracy testing with my CZ-97 last weekend. . . . . and I swear the accuracy with the harder MB is better. Am I just imagining this, or has anyone experienced this before?

    Seems the gun runs a little cleaner as well.

    I have not noticed a better accuracy with the harder bullet, but one thing I have noticed about Missouri Bullets are that they are good quality and good priced product. I know that the most accurate loads I have to date are with Missouri Bullets.

    Have you tried the 230 softballs or the 200 rnfp(the one labeled for xds)? They are two of my absolute favorite .45 acp bullets.

    I worked up a load for my Sig 1911 target last week using Missouri's Bullseye #2 185gr. LSWC.

    I worked my way up from 3gr. to 5gr. of Bullseye and the accuracy was good. I only loaded up five in 5 gr. and couldn't do much testing. I was at a range that was loaded with people and already had a target out at 50 yds so I said what the heck, lined up the sights off a sandbag and let em fly. All five went into a group the size of a big grapefruit. I tried some lighter loads first but these seemed to work best for accuracy and reliability.

    I think the Bullseye #2's are 18bhn too. I didn't check the barrel after each group but I only had a little leading overall after 25rds. One thing I didn't understand is that 3,3 1/2, and 4gr. functioned fine and had decent grouping but 4.5 I had 3 ftf out of 5 rounds but good accuracy. I bumped it up to 5gr. and they functioned fine and had good accuracy. I will load up some more tomorrow and run them over a Chrony and see what kind of groups I can shoot. There were no signs of over pressure at 5gr. so I may try adding a little bit more powder and see if they tighten up a little.
