<span style="font-weight: bold"> </span> 44 MAG <span style="font-weight: bold"> </span> desert eagle 10" barrel
200 grain Hornady XTP
H110 or W296 @ 27.5 grains
OAL to mag length
1700+ (dont remember the exact vel)
very good accuracy (best group at 100 was 2 1/2 inches w/ scope sand bagged)
results on deer: In each case all bullets punched through both sides of the deer but not the hide on the opposite side. Made easy recovery of the bullet for weight and expansion study. So far all the bullets maintained 90%+ of there weight, and completely expanded. Damage to the vitals was extreme to say the least. Lungs and heart where simply gone... turned to jello, and had surprisingly little meat damage. Shots have been between 30 and 60 yards
26.5 gr H110
Remmington 210gr JHP
Winchester LP magnum primers
Mixed brass, but mostly Winchester
Velocity is high, but loads still seem to be very accurate (plinking empty shotgun shells at 25yds) *if I can use the word plinking in the same sentence as .44mag*. The gun is new, so I haven't had much time at the range to give you an idea of group size.
I use this load for NRA Bullseye and Falling Plate matches. This powder burns much cleaner than Unique.
The felt recoil is sharper than Unique. I don't know why but Unique's recoil feels more like a shove and the WST is sharper like a 9mm. It's still no problem.
This load is very very accurate in my pistol, in Dad's Kimber and SA Target. I have had 5 holes touching at 50 yards, single hand offhand- no rest. I wish I could do that every time.
BTW, my pistol isn't exactly stock so your accuracy may vary.
This load is not hot so should be safe in any quality 1911 .45acp.
My IPSC loads
200gr Precision @ 1.250
5.1 WST Makes major with no problems, can shoot a couple thousand without cleaning, and has very little flash as an added bonus.
I also like this powder for 230 ball. In a low light shoot it has less flash than Federal Hydrashock.
180 Zero tmj @ 1.180"
Makes major, very clean for thousands of rounds, and shoots soft.
.45 ACP Rock River Arms 5"
Remington 185 Golden Sabre
Fed 150 primer
Win 231 at 5.3 GR
9MM Luger. Gun is Mac 10 F/A with Gemtech Viper 9 suppressor( very picky about the ammo, with wrong load/factory ammo it will not cycle at full auto rate)
Hornady 147 GR
Fed 100 primer
Win 231 at 4 GR or Accurate # 7 at 6.5 GR. These loads stay sub-sonic and cycle the Mac 10 very well.

YMMV, start low and work up. I've chony these loads and also used QL also. The glock is a tad bit slow of projections and the Sig is spot on.
200 grain RN FMJ
5.2 grains Red Dot
SA XD 45 5" model
Safe, hotter than commercial Winchestor White Box. Very Accurate in my gun. I could probably bump the OAL out to 1.26 and increase powder by .3 grains and get more speed and same pressure, but it functions flawlessly so I'm leaving it
5.6 grains of Red Dot is damn near max because primers flatened
Glock 20, OEM barrel (4.6" IIRC)
COL = 1.262" (didn't feel the need to bump it back to 1.260)
200grn Hornady XTP
CCI LP mag primer
Mild Roll Crimp ~ .01"
Ramshot Silohuette - 7.6grains
Max listed at 7.8 grains, backed off to 7.6 due to flat primers starting to flow into firing pin notch. Severely bellied brass at 7.8 grains. 7.6 shows mild belly with flat primers
Blue Dot - 9.8 grains
10 grains bottoms standard recoil spring and bellies brass severely, backed to 9.8 grains with mild belly, no bottomed spring.

No, but I'm working on it!
