    I have only been reloading for a few months now. Just reloaded some 45 ACP for the first time. I used 4.5 gr. of titegroup under a 200 gr. RN rainier bullet. I am shooting a High Standard 1911 Compact. The caseings feed well. They had a lot of black on one side of the case after it was fired. The chamber didnt get very dirty. Any suggestions would be great.

    Low pressure load isn't expanding the case enough to seal it.

    Hodgdon Starting load with a 200 & Titegroup is 4.7 jacketed and 4.8 lead.

    Max is 5.2 jacketed & 5.4 lead
