I have fooled some with the Lee 255 RFN. Worked OK, but wondering what else out there is as good or a better choice for a max hunting load.
Here’s the page out of my old RCBS manual.Years ago I had a couple of the Speer manuals and they used to show data for their 260-grain JSP in .45 ACP.
In 1978, RCBS thought it was an ACP bullet😏!That's a Long Colt bullet.
I have the same book #10 & bought it new. I still have my Budweiser beach towel from the 60's Looks like 5.9 of 231 and a 260 would kick a lot.In 1978 RCBS thought it was an ACP bullet😏!
Your’s is in a lot better shape than mine. Up until I realized there were more updated editions and other manuals when I got my first job in a Gunshop, it was the only manual I used. Still have it.I have the same book #10 & bought it new. I still have my Budwieser beach towel from the 60's View attachment 668033
I got my RCBS #10 Manual too. I did eventually get #12 and now #15. My favorite reloads for 45 ACP and 38 Special have not changed in 40+ years. Still a Bullseye and Unique guy, no pun intended.In 1978, RCBS thought it was an ACP bullet😏!
This is why I NEVER throw away an old loading manual. Just too useful for research!Here’s the page out of my old RCBS manual. View attachment 668006
