Everyone must use Power Pistol in my area. The Cabelas store and the local shop I use was out of it. Hopefully they get a shipment in today. Never used it before but if I like it I'm buying 4lbs. Calling around just to find powder sucks.:yawn:

PP works great (230gr FMJ) out of my buddy's Mac-10 full auto.

Power Pistol is fine if you're trying to "impress" friends shooting at night. Huge fireball and BANG!

The UPS man dropped 8 pounds of this stuff off at my house yeterday. I am not finding load data for 230 grain Hornady XTP JHP's in my Hornady manual. Anyone have suggestions on a safe load?

Turns out the Hornady manual has data for it. :whistling:

Hornady 7 shows a max of 7.6 grains of Power Pistol with the 230 XTP loaded to 1.230" for 900 fps from their 5" 1911 test gun.

You can buy me a Mountain Dew later.

Wow, I will have to look again! I was tired last night and may have missed it. :embarassed: The powder was a late xmas gift form my wife...I usually research powders before buying them. Thanks for the info!

It might not be in the new manual. #7 is the only one I have close by. #8 is in the garage.

I can't help out with Power Pistol beyond that. Never used it.

OOPS!

Hornady changed their mind in the Eighth edition: Now the max for the 230 gr HP-XTP at 1.230" is 7.1 gr (900 fps). The starting load is 5.5 gr for 700 fps.

I wonder what happened?

Good catch. I still haven't consulted #8.

I did notice with #8 that they finally got realistic about Unique in .45 auto.
