4.7-5gr with a 230, or 5gr with a 200.
With a 230 4.7 was softer but 5 seemed a hair more accurate.
That author found 231 to produce the best groups.
If I can find some I will try it, tried some WSF during the 08 shortage and I have been happy with it for heavy 44 spl and heavy 45 acp.
UNIQUE for velocity
Again, just my observation and opinion on that powder in the 45 ACP.
I have used this powder for upper end 45 acp and it works well. My only complaint it takes a lot of #5 to get where you need to be.
What I would do for self defensive is different than target.
Hard to go wrong with BE. I'm one of the few that seem to do better with WST than W231.
W-231 for general use for jacketed bullets.
WSF for 185 gr XTP self defense rounds
ByTheWay. I'm getting 800 fps from a Kimber UCC II 3" barrel with 7.7 gr of WSF under a 185 grain XTP.
$15.59 a pound? how old is that can?
Not quite as old as that can of DuPont HiSkor 700X.
Hot loads or puff loads Bullseye has published data that will do for your choice of bullet.
4.8 grains of Bullseye, for everything .45ACP from 185 grain to 230 grain.
