45 ACP+P with AS50N

Post by mickb » 28 May 2019, 1:18 am

Gents, anyone ever loaded jacketed 230 grainers with this powder? I'd love to try Hogdon titegroup as its a real sweet spot for minimal charges and decent 45+P power and pressure. I don't think they bring this one in, certainly can't find it on web searches. The powder with the closest burn rate we have is AS50N. I have never used it before, not even sure if ADI will still be stocking it. Any thoughts?

All my handgun loads use AS50N. I use this powder for 9mm, 45ACP and 38 Special.
Have loaded 45's with 230gr plated bullets using 4.0gr powder for lighter loads and up to 4.3gr for a stronger hit. My most successful loads however are my own Hi Tech coated 200gr round nose cast bullets with 4.0gr.of the AS50N powder. This combination has been the most accurate by far and is fairly light on recoil.
I found the copper plated bullets to be less accurate than the cast bullets in my Colt 1911's.

When AS50N eventually runs out the replacement will be the ADI APS450 which will cover shotgun as well as handgun.

vmax, thanks ever tried jacketed bullets with AS50N in the 45ACP?

Also is APS 450 going to be faster or slower do you know?

reminds me of the worry if they take As30N or clays as the Americans call it off the market.... Probably one of the most prolific powders for light loads in pistols. Almost every calibre has at least one clays load for it in both jacketed or lead.
