So I modified my 1911 to handle 45 super and was wondering what bullets you guys on here used for medium game and was also curious about the velocities and loads that were being used don't worry I won't blow myself up
;\)
hopefully ill be able to get a few rounds through it tomorrow the only bullets I currently have are 180 xtps which should destroy milk jugs nicely as usual all input is appreciated and ill be back with some sort of report night all

Following this. I just bought a Glock 21SF to do the same thing. There is a lot of good data for a lot of calibers on handloads.com website. I haven't purchased a barrel, spring or dies yet so I haven't checked it out.

There is a lot of difference in the acp and super on the Taylor Knockout Scale. I think it'll be well worth the effort in the end.

By medium size game I am assuming deer and pronghorn? At super velocity the 230XTP works just fine. Quite a killer. If you are thinking about going after hogs the 255 Beartooth sized .451 will work well.

I did a Super conversion on my S&W 4506...I have used it on deer with a 200 gr hard cast swc at 1230 fps..10 grains of Power Pistol in a 5" barrel. Penetration is no problem and kills deer dead..which seems enough power to me! LOL!

The 185 grain XTP's are excellent in the Super

I would also consider the 200 grain XTP.
I would probably do some experimenting with all three. You have several considerations. Function, Expansion, and Accuracy come to mind. Working with all three, One of them may excel. I would lean more towards the 200 and 230 myself.

Another bullet that I had good luck with in the super is the Nosler 185. You're not going to get an exit. It will stop under the off side hide but destroys everything getting there.

Been a minute finally got a chance to work up some loads I only had a few 230 xtps and it was raining so no chrono data id guess 1,100 fps at 9.4 grains of power pistol and a 180 id guess around 1,400 fps at 11.3 grains power pistol from looking at velocities listed on the data no signs of pressure at all even with 30 year old acp brass it all checked out in my gun and dads gun point of impact was right where id want it but ill say both loads had a lot of jump and bang compared to what im used to and they almost had some recoil lol no bulged cases at all and from the look of the brass both Kimbers have really close to 100% support down to the case head there can't be much exposed web really threw the brass out but I don't plan on shooting full power loads through it most of the time and with the spring set up I have it didn't feel like the gun was getting beat up at all and it still runs our practice ammo just fine so... Now to kill a few squirrels with it for practice and then introduce it to bambi's dad thanks for the input guys even though I've been slow about this
