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.
