    I bought 500 rounds of Bearcreek 45 ACP, 200 gr SWC a few months ago without researching as much as I should have. I cant find much reloading data on these bullets nor can i find an URL for Bearcreek. The only thing I have found for this bullet is 5.0 gr W231, and OAL 1.255. Any advise?

    My favorite load for 200 gr SWC (5.0 gr W231/HP38). Should work for that bullet. BTW, I use 1.25" OAL.

    Use data from any 200gr LSWC.

    yep. That will work fine. I had some Bear Creek 200 Gr SWc's some time back. They shot well. Don't know what happened to the company. Precision bullets are similar, and they shoot very well too.

    I just ordered two sample packs (9MM & .38) from Black Bullets International.
