Gooldylocks Posted February 12, 2014 Share Posted February 12, 2014 So I was thinking today (take this with a grain of salt, this is just a train of thought idea) about reloading different calibers for major. In my experience, .45 ACP has less felt recoil than a .40 cal shooting factory ammo. So, my thought was this: could you load .45 to barely above power factor and have a very soft, flat shooting gun? If my math is right then a 200gr bullet at 840 FPS should make 168 pf. Does anyone load for major like this? I was mostly just wondering after seeing a Para USA 14.45 with Dawson base pads, making an 18 round 45. You would lose a few rounds to the 40's, but if you had a gun that you could shoot super flat and fast then maybe it would be ok? Anyway, what are your thoughts on this? Thanks in advance!
