You might want to work up to that, not start there. The Berry's will run with any powder suitable for the 45acp. I run them with WST, about 900fps, works in anything 45acp I shoot.Thanks for the info, just looked up the revised data for Accurate powder #5, they specifically list those exact bullets, 9.1 gr for right at 1000 fps. I'll start there.
Though you are probably on the right track working up a load using AA5 (if you have some), you did not really describe the type of malfunction you were getting with your brother's gun. Certainly an underpowered load will not cycle the slide far enough to insure feeding, or sometimes not even push it back far enough to pick up a round, so if that is what was happening, then you probably need to increase power a bit.My brother bought a box of Berry's 200 HP plated bullets. Couldn't get them to run reliably in his pistol. Is wondering what loads people have been having good luck with this bullet. I have the standard XD .45
That was JSG point, what problem? It could easily be the reloader, not the bullet or specific load. There are people that reload & there are people that know how to reload, it is diff.I need to clarify, my brother and his pistol were having the issues. He already gave me the box of bullets he was so frustrated. I was just looking for info on some loads youall have worked up with this bullet, being that Berry's seem to be pretty popular.
