I have a .45 XD and have found the 230gr XTP needs to be at a COL of 1.210 or under to chamber in my gun. Does anyone have any loads for the XTP with AA #7 I am concerned about pressure problems with the short COL.
I use AA#5 for .45 acp loads with 185 and 200 gr XTPs-see the AA website under .45 acp +P for powder weights. It lists a 185 gr @ 1150 fps, and 200 gr @ 1050 fps. The lighter bullet weights do allow more space for powder. Both loads are accurate and run flawlessly in my XD service. If you want 230gr try Gold dot FMJs they don't have that "shot glass" look and should have less overall length. If in doubt ,call Accurate Arms for data (they have a great website).
