I just loaded some .45Colt rds. with 7.8gr. of W231 pushing a 250gr. cast RNFP. Just wondering what ya'll thought about 231. They will be fired from a Blackhawk with a 4 5/8" Bbl.

Don't know about being shot from the Blackhawk, but I've always loaded .45acp with with W231....always had good results.....

I use a lot of 231. Currently, I'm using 6.5grs behind a Remington swaged 250gr LRN...nice mild load for my 25-5...went to this bullet because this gun has the large throats.

It's a bit dirty, but cleans up easy enough.

I use it in .380 ACP, .32 S&W Long, .38 Special, .45 ACP, 44 Special etc....

Good luck.

Bob

Sorry, can't help Deadeye. I have never used the stuff. I might want to try it though. Does it meter more consistantly than Unique? So far, that has been my only complaint about Unique. I may try a new powder soon.

Same here. I use Unique for my 45 acp, 45 Colt, and 357. I really like it, but it doesn't meter for crap. :?

Yes, W231 meters a lot better than Unique....I used to use W231 and HP38...now, they're the same thing....they both meter really nice and consistant, but, I've switched to Unique because it's cleaner and I like the way it shoots better.....

I do like the way Unique shoots. Not that I've used anything to compare it to. But it seems to shoot as good as any factory ammo I've used.
