Glad to help. That load 230/N310 sounds about right. You might also try to find Norma R1 if it's available. According to the stats, it burns faster than N310 but I have never used it and I don't recall ever seeing it for sale.canuck63 said:Hi FLL;
Yesterday I've tried a few loads with FMJ 230 grainers over 4.4grs of N310 and they worked a charm...no excessive recoil,no trace of blow by and no high pressures to speak of!
In Italy we have to make do with powders made by the likes of Vihtavuori,Nitrokemia(Rex powders...darn good and as cheap as dirt!),Hogdon,BP(Baschieri&Pellagri ball powders made by NATO standards which work wonders with a lot and suck with another...call them "standards" ),Nobel Sport and Winchester,the latter are less and less imported while the other US brands are "unobtanium" here or,more often than not...virtually unknown to the masses!
THanks a lot for chiming in bud!
Have a great Sunday
Hi Wizzel,wizzel said:Great thread guys. I have a can of N310 and have had difficulty finding data for it. I read an article in one of the gun mags where the author mentioned that it was his absolute favorite powder for accurate loads in the .45acp. Anyone happen to have a load for 200gr lead SWC or RNFP or for 230gr lead ball? I've been using a lot of Titegroup lately, Bullseye and W231 in the past, all of which I like but I want to try this new one.
Gonna try this one myself!ColtLover said:One of our Bullseye guys won state with a load I recamended to him. 185 LSWC and 3.9 Grains Viht N310! He beat out several other guys using Nosler in a very close match.
