    found this old post and was wondering if anyone else likes heaver bullets out of there 45acp and if so would like to share some data on the reloads.


    i have found my 1911 and other 45acp's like the heavy 255-260 g bullet's.

    to me there more accurate.

    not much info out there on 260g, shot some 255 last week and it didn't take many to bust the center out and leave a large hole in the target.

    never paid it much attention till a guy next to me was shooting a 40 and he had a good group going (nice and sorta tight) but the center was just a bunch of holes, i put 20 out of my 45 and the center left.

    I LOVE A 45:D

    Where did you get properly sized projectiles?

    I don't know about this, but in my younger days, we did succeed in having a Browning Hi Power beat itself to death shooting 158gr bullets out of it and they were sized to .356 to use in a 9mm.

    255-260 grain bullets are hard on the frames of 1911s . make sure you run a good shock buff and at least a 18 lb spring. They do take bowling pins off the table real well though...

    i shoot 250gr pin busters....20# recoil and 26# main spring.....put in a heavier main spring than a shok-buffer....seen them blow apart and jam the barrel and slide....dead blow hammer gets them apart...not a pretty sight...
