Does anyone have any experience with Montana gold .45 acp 200 grain JFP, I did a search and there's very little.
I spoke with a guy at a local range who stated that they were very accurate but did not know anything about the loads because he did not load them and I did not have any way of measuring OAL with me. So anyone have any information about these bullets and other loading info?
Thanks

The reloaders of the Montana Gold do use them, if you would do a search for Montana Gold you would most likely find out how the reloaders like or dislike the Montana Gold Bullets

I am using MGB 200 grain JFP/JSP, with Ramshot Enforcrer powder and load data from 200 grain XTP's (Hornady)(see note) for shooting at steel targets, because they seem to bounce back less than FMJ's.

Note: I made this determination after careful experimentation and load developement. I will not post the powder charge or details specific to this load as it was developed for my pistol, under controlled conditions.

They are fairly accurate, but I haven't really done any serious and intense testing to see exactly how tight they can group, but otherwise, they are working quite well at the velocities I am pushing them.

I started loading them, because I was looking for a practice load, that could duplicate my carry load Hornady 200 XTP (+P) and with the Enforcer powder, I can duplicate the load safely.

MGB 200 JSP measurement (apprx) : length .543, Bearing surface .282, Shoulder to nose .265, Nose .242, Outside dia. .451

Hornady XTP 200 JHP Measurement (apprx): L .568 , Bearing S .285, Shoulder to nose .290, Nose .254, Outside dia. .451

The above measure are approxiamate, since I don't have the equipment to get exact measurements.

If you want loads for Ramshot powders go the the website www.ramshot.com

The Enforcer powder is a low density powder and you will use twice as much powder, per load as you would with another powder, but, you can get velocities above a 1000 fps with the starting load and the 200 grain bullet.

FYI, I have found a good one, 200 JFP over 340 V V, min load per the manual and they go where ever I point them.

The Manual is on line.:D :D :D

I shoot the Montana 200 grs all the time I load 6.5 gr of universal but I don't know the oal \.

If you email me I'll look it up when I get back from the frozen North (Detroit) Thursday.

I fhav shot about 3000 of them this year so far and the seem to shoot quite well.

Any body using Clays and the MG 200 JFP? I just switch from the 230 FMJ Rainiers. If so, can you share your Clays load data for this bullet. I will email both Montanta and Hodgdon and post if they respond.

Thanks
