thanks ever so much.

that tells me more than i knew to start.

ive reloaded shotgun shells for 10 years and 303 enfield shells about 6 months.

i have 10 pounds of herco powder i would like to use up in my pistol since i dont shotgun shoot as much any more.


1000 rounds per can of herco will really make me smell smoke for a long time.

Listed below is a page from the Alliant website at www.alliantpowder.com and these are maximum loads. Herco is listed as 9.0 grains for a 250 grain bullet. Speer reloading manuals have a bunch of .45 Colt loads using Herco powder. All the best...
