I use a Precision RNFP, 200grs, over 4.2grs of Clays. The bullet profile is similar to most of the .45 ACP hollowpoints on the market, and I've settled on 1.2" for OAL.

How "assorted" is that brass that it uses small primers? Win NT or the Federal equivalent....anything else?

C-I, I just meant different headstamp. I haven't shot a .45 for IPSC in a few years, as far as I know it was before the small primer NT brass came out.
