Should be. 6.2grs is a middle of the road load. I get around 850fps of velocity. Lyman's Cast Handbook shows 6.0 to 7.5grs of Unique as there load data with a COL of 1.235" That is for a 200gr Lead SWC.

I use 1.245" as a COL (I dont remember the source of that figure it was over 15 years ago that I developed the load) but like I said Lyman used 1.235" with their data.

I am shooting the MiHec 200 SWC (H&G #53 clone, I think...) w/ an OAL of 1.250". Load the cartridge to an OAL and then drop one in your bbl - the rim of the case should be even with the edge of the bbl. How I worked mine up and works great.

FWIW - Unique was ok, but Power Pistol was better for me. My buddy's 45 (brand new) shot the PP and a Clays load superbly.

My bullseye pistol load for the .45 ACP is a 200 gr SWC & 4.2 grains of Bullseye -- gives me right at 800 fps, and is absolutely accurate in my 1911. Standard Deviations with this load are 8 fps in my pistol.
