Hello. I currently don't have any of the 230XTPs loaded and cannot find my notes for LOA, but I load them just a bit longer than does Hornady in their factory loads. I use 7.0 gr Unique in WCC cases with a Federal or Winchester Large Pistol Primer.

Best.

The lengths of some JHP rounds and such...

S&B 230 HB 1.265
SPEER 230 GDOT 1.210
TRITON 165 JHP 1.210
COR-BON 230 JHP 1.225



I found a listing in the Hornady 4th of 1.245 OAL for 45ACP...
In the Speer 12 it's 1.275 max...

9.0 gr of HS-6
1.225 OAL
in a 5" gun I use a
18.5# spring and shock buff, and get
about 880 feet/sec. It's a very nice load.

Lodraw,I have'nt used the XTP bullets.But I have used W231 with 230 Winchester JHP for some pinloads.My Speer #11 manual shows 6.2 gr of W231 as max load for 230 ball.I have used this load.In brass cases I get a slight flattening of primer.Using +P Remington cases I get no signs of excess pressure.I load to 1.225",using Win.LP primers.Loads averaged 908 fps shot through 5" Kart NM barrel.Interestingly the same batch shot with my Baer PII averaged 26 fps less.

I think AA#5 powder would be a better choice.I have seen data that suggests higher velocity with lower pressures.I plan on working up some loads using this powder.

I believe there is a difference between Hornady reloading manual 4th edition and 5th edition for .45 acp. I would be interested if someone could list like specifications for me.
The 5th edition lists for 230gr bullets #45160 hp-xtp col 1.230, #45177 fmj-rn enc col 1.230,#45187 fmj-fp enc 1.200.
I use WIN231 and understand it may not be the best selection for xtp loads but thats what I have on hand. I am concerned about the differences between loading manual revision and col. Appreciate your input thanks.

WIN WSL is listed. 231 is NOT.
If you want other info, post again...I guess I could scan a page for you...

...More to follow...

Thanks gyp_c2, I don't like the low col of fmj in the revised manual. I know they have checked everything out but feel using say 1.240 instead of 1.230 is a better choice for me. I will look into this further thought.

You'll need to view this on the web as it's too big for the site and I can't shrink it without losin' what detail there is...
