    "Pet Load" for SAECO #058 215gr. SWC?

    Does anyone but me use this projectile? Loading data for it in .45 ACP is scant. I plan to use 230gr. FMJ data for work-up, if I fail to get recommendations. Hodgdon lists a max load using CFE-Pistol & 200gr. LSWCs as delivering 1150 f/s (!!). I'm NOT that ambitious, but I'd expect that 215gr. at ~900 f/s can be obtained without straining anything.
    Propellants available are B'eye, Unique, BE-86, Promo (Red Dot) & AA#5.
    Thanks in advance!

    to the forum!

    Load data for this bullet is supposedly available in the Lyman Cast Bullet Handbook, 4th Edition.

    You can always use data for a heavier bullet of the same construction.
