Here is a table (http://wp.me/p10N1I-1) for reloading .45 ACP.

I like the WST load on 230 gr RN.

Wow, OAL of 1.200 on a 230 gr LRN. Kinda short imo.

So, it's data from Hodgdon's website, am I missing something?

Yes WST is a great powder choice for the 45acp & yes 1.200"OAL w/ many 230grLRN is going to be too short. Most will want to be no deeper than 1.225" OAL.

AFAIK, when COL is given with data like that, it's the minimum COL. i.e. they're saying don't go shorter than this with the max load we've specified, or you're going to have more pressure than this max load. Of course, if you're not using and don't have the same bullets they used, it's hard to make meaningful COL comparisons, because you probably won't know how your bullets compare to theirs in length. A longer bullet loaded to the same COL as a shorter one would result in lower case volume and likely (there are other variables) higher pressure.
