Range report

Primarily on the .45acp I loaded to try to match the factory Gold Dot specs.

Yes, I did remember the Chrony, so fired one full load(8 rounds). High velocity 1087, lows 1021, average 1050. Considering the Speer website shows muzzle velocity for the 185-grain Gold Dot to be 1050, I think this does indeed duplicate it nicely. At slightly less powder than shown at the Alliant site. So I'll call this a very successful project, which will make the magazine or two of Gold Dots for practice MUCH less expensive.
