Loading data for Power Pistol

When you can find data for a load, it works great but I'm having trouble finding a recipe for 200 grain full copper jacket round nose bullets from X-Treme. I can find JHP loads all day but not this one. I've been to the Power Pistol website and there's nothing there that will match. Why is it so hard to find PP data? This is for 45acp BTW.

You can use the 200gr JHP data for your 200gr PRN. Just start at the min 6.6gr PP and work your way up to max 7.4gr PP.

OR


You can use the data for a 200gr FMJ FN with a min 7.0gr PP to max 8.3gr PP.


I feel sure that you will most likely find a good accurate load without having to load to a max load.

I'm going to try 6.1 grains PP with a lite crimp. Only made 6 and if they cycle, good to go. I don't need to break any speed record like a friend of mine. He loads everything super hot. I just don't see the point. No matter how slow a round is traveling, no one would be able to step out of the way in time. Sometimes, fat and slow gets the job done!

Be careful, for under loading rounds can/does lead to a squib round.........and you do NOT want a squib round, especially if undetected, and another round is fired. That scenario will ruin your whole day!!! Be safe.
