Shane, how would you compare Tightgroup with Red dot in cleanliness and FPS.Originally posted by shane45-1911:
Welcome rugerguy. Red-dot is my favourite .45ACP powder! Commander length are my favourite 1911's! We're gonna get along just fine!
4.6 - 4.7 gr's should give you what you want. My favourite load in 4 1/4" is 5.0 grs. with a 225 gr. LFP. This is good for about 825 FPS, and is highly accurate, clean and powerful (yet light kicking) in my Commander length guns.
Gargoyle, Titegroup is a great powder too. I found it very economical. The only problem I found is that it tended to be a little dirtier at lower volumn loads (true of most powders though). Red-dot seems to be cleaner burning across the board with light and full power loads.Originally posted by Gargoyle:
