Believe it or not, jacketed bullets are good for +/- 2gn and cast bullets are good for at least +/- 4gn of bullet weight. It is the load workup, based on the exact lot numbers of the components used...

2) Most commercial bullets are too hard—18-22 BHN, where 9-13 BHN is all that is needed.
3) For hard bullets, fit is more critical. I would try 0.002"...

Since you have a MAX load, you always reduce it by 10-12% for a start load. This mean that you SHOULD be starting at 11.7gn.
I always check multiple sources and start with the LOWEST STARTING load I...

The ballistic "better" of a JHP? The difference between a 3" and a 1.5" group. The on-target ballistics (paper or other). I would "expect" group size to be smaller with a hollow base, but the only...

It depends. The FMJ is the mass-produced, "slam 'em out and ship 'em" bullets. The JHPs, on the other hand, represent years and decades of design and testing and adjustment costs that are made more...

I prefer ONLY 200gn L-SWCs in ALL my .45 Autos. I don't mind snap up/snap down. The sights return on target. If not a 200gn L-SWC, it would be 185gn JHPs.

2) Use a 147gn bullet and load down until gun just cycles (or get a lighter recoil spring)

Some are tumbled in micro-fine mica so they don't stick to each other. This is fine to load as-is.
If dirt, you wipe them off with a rag. Or, you melt them all down and cast your own.

Any lead-core jacketed bullet will use the same loading data. COL needs to be adapted for each bullet and you ALWAYS start with the lowest starting load and work up.
