  1. Overall impressions Wish I knew some things up front. First, a starline brass 45 acp super with the power pistol could saved me the conversion to 460 Roland. Once I read the reloading data on 460R rounds, keeping OAL the same as a 45ACP negates a longer brass. Second, I need to be more consistent with loading the charge and crimping. Even though the scale read accurately, the FPS tells me differently. Third, I hit my 1500 fps muzzle velocity goal and found the bottom charge point. - need a consistent 6.8-7.2 (185gr bullet) charge for major power factor - 5.5 to 6.25 grs is a nice soft shooting set up - the 10x more expensive XTP jacketed is 10% faster than the berry hollow base plated bullets - 1500 fps achievable with 45 acp brass (full supported chamber of lonewolf barrel) - Muzzle Energy(ft-lbs) = 998.51 - 13grs of PP is where I found 1500 fps with both Horny XTP and Berry HB - a chrono that reads 5 of 10 OR 1 of 10 isn't fun - favorite reloading combo is the berry hollow base in 460R and 45ACP facts: Gun-45ACP 21SF with lonewolf 6.61 Threaded barrel reamed for 460R powder : Power Pistol ... this all I could get bullets: Berry hollow base 185gr, .595" length Hornady XTP 185 gr, .545" length Actual data 40 S&W 180gr freedom ammo / G35 stock barrel / 1104 1088 1105 1105 40 S&W 180gr freedom ammo / G24 6.61” with compensator / 1083 1084 1184 1042 1175 [baseline] 45 ACP federal 230gr aluminum casing / G21L 6.61” / 905.7 937.5 917.6 906.6 1092 961.4 45 ACP berry 185gr hollow back copper plated / 6gr power pistol / 1565 860.2 805.3 45 ACP berry 185gr / 7gr power pistol / 1591 809.2 1343 889 904 820 927.8 939.6 968.0 45 ACP berry 185gr / 9gr power pistol / two stuck bullets in LW barrel, 1077, 1077, 1580, 1684 45 ACP berry 185gr hollow back / 13 gr power pistol/ blew the timer apart…no data 45 ACP berry 185gr hornady XTP hollow point / fun to shoot…no data Day 2 changed from 15 lb/in to 24 lb/in recoil spring [baseline] 45 ACP, FED 230gr, Al case / G21L 6.61” / 847.2, 869.2, 857, 846, 846 45 ACP case Berry-185gr – 5.0 grs ~1.2” OAL/ Won’t cycle with 24 lb-in recoil, spent case flip into chamber backwards / 548.6, 585, 643, 479, 400, 612, 840 45 ACP case-Berry 185gr hollow base/ G21L 6.61” / 9.0 gr – 1.21OAL ish / 1091, 1156, 1149, 2155 (lie), 1132, 994, 1103, 1018, 1146 45 ACP case-Horn XTP 185gr/ G21L 6.61” / 9.0gr -/ 1203, 1222, 1158 1236, 1227, 1232, 1287, 1124 460R case XTP 185 / 13gr / 1.21” OAL too damn short / 1512, 1510, 1542 460R case Berry 185gr / 13grs /1.21 and one 1.29 OAL / 1555, 1523, 1525 45 ACP case Berry 185 grs / 10 grs / 1.23” OAL / 1264 1161 1342 460R case XTP / 13 grs / 1.15 OAL way too low / 1529…these shot off without a problem 45 ACP case XTP / 13 grs / 1.13” OAL = 946.6(It lied), 1.17-1.24 OAL=no data, 1.24” OAL-1423 …good feel but I know the used 45 ACP case has its limits
