Right now I am going through some confusion on what is a safe powder load for my .45 Rugers 1911. Reading through various charts I have read different loads using W231 Winchester powder. I am using a Handy Dandy little rotor set and the #8 rotor stated that it will load 5.0 grs. of 231. Upon inspection I find that the rotor actually uses 5.5 grs. In looking up different charts I see that there is much confusion on a safe load involving W231. One chart stated that 6.3gr. is the max. whereas 5.3 is max. I would like to keep using my Handy Dandy rotors however I am in question as 5.5 grs. of W231 is safe to use. I am using Berry plated bullets (.452) and have previously been using Bullseye and found them to be accurate and safe. Does anyone know if 5.5 grns. is too much for .45 cal. or will it be safe? I hope someone has some experience with the loading data. MY COAL is @1.250. Help me please????
