Because the 9mm post was so much fun right? I inherited a 45acp camp carbine, which takes 1911 mags. So the rounds have to fit in a 1911 mag. It has the full 16 inch barrel. My benefactor did complain about 20 years ago that a 16 inch barrel on a 45acp is stupid and that he should cut it down. So I may do that. Accuracy was unexpected. With my worst cast lead mixed head stamp range fodder I was getting holes touching at 25 yards so the accuracy is there. Why? Just because. Maybe the antis ban everything and all we can have is pistol cal long guns. Maybe my 1894 and k98 are assault rifles and get banned, for reasons. Maybe it's total hunger games and all we can dare hunt with is suppressed subsonic guns, or bow and arrows... Well my shoulders are messed up so bows and arrows are kind of out. I'll definitely use it on coyotes. The gun has been modded, today I replaced the original maybe 9lb 25 year old warn out recoil spring with a new 21lb spring and put in a fresh bolt buffer. Going for subsonic out of the rife, so I'm limited to 230gr and up. The best powder I have on hand for a carbine loads that stands out is accurate No.7 I'm more likely to be using jacketed bullets. My speer manual has a nearly 11gr load for a .451'' 225 grain revolver bullet. A 230gr probably about the same. I have found a few +P loads over the years for AA7, add 1 to 1.5gr depending on the bullet. Bluedot looks pretty good too, maybe even better than AA7 but I'm running low on it. I can load develop with it, but will have to wait till the plandemic is over before I can get another pound and load up a few boxes. I'm also interested in hearing how the 45acp's ultimate stopping power (aside from 10mm) is inappropriate for deer. What are your favorite hot and heavy 45acp 1911 or carbine loads? For 5.5 inch barrel 1911 I have always loaded unique and more recently general dynamics cbi as I had tried slower powders but there didn't appear to be any advantage to loading 50% more powder in a 5 to 5.5 inch barrel gun to get the same or a little more velocity.
