I have some odd-lot powders laying around that I'd like to make some practice ammo out of.... can't find any loads for these two in the manuals I have. Anybody got time to help me out-- like some middle of the road and factory equivalent loads using these powders and 200 and 230 grain JHP's?

How about with Accurate AA#7? Their book does not show it used in .45 ACP. I have used it, but it was for pin loads-- I suspect that like with Blue Dot, AA#7 is only good for real stout stuff in .45.

Nick Harvey's Practical Reloading Manual
.45ACP 200 gn SWC
4.0 gn W452AA = 700 fps start
5.2 gn W452AA = 900 fps max
No data for other bullets. I recall that at one time - right before they discontinued it - Richard Heinie was said to be sending out guns testfired and sighted with 5.0 gr W452 and 200 gr SWC.

Winchester Reloader's Manual 15
.45ACP 200 gr JHP
7.0 gr WAP = 855 fps
7.7 gr WAP = 965 fps max
.45ACP 230 gr JHP
6.1 gr WAP = 760 fps
6.6 gr WAP = 835 fps max
.45 ACP 230 gr FMJ
6.8 gr WAP = 820 fps
7.4 gr WAP = 885 fps max
I do not understand the difference in loads for 230 FMJ and JHP. Pressures are about the same. I have never gotten Winchester's velocity from their loads, but it will likely shoot.

Accurate Arms Loading Guide No 1
.45ACP 200 gr XTP
10.8 gr No 7 = 912 fps
12.0 gr No 7 = 1036 fps max
.45ACP 230 gr FMJ
9.9 gr No 7 = 811 fps
11.0 gr No 7 = 922 fps max
