    Anyone use this powder in a 1911? If so what do you think of it?

    I use it in my plinking rounds. If I weren't in SoCal with the relatives right now I could tell you exactly what I load it with. But if memory serves I load mine with 6.1gr behind a 230gr Montana Gold RN. Other than working fine for me and metering well through my Dillon 550B there's not much more else to say about it.

    FWIW I also use it for my 9mm plinking loads shot from the wife's and my Glocks. 5gr behind a 115gr Montana Gold RN. Again, that's by my failing memory so YMMV.

    Thanks BAMCIS, Looks to be slightly better suited to 230gr bullets and I can save the 231 for faster and lighter bullets.

    Its pretty good and clean, but tends to run a bit more spendy.
