.45 ACP loads with Clays or titegroup

Does anyone have any load data for either Clays or titegroup with a 200 gr. LRNFP bullet. I shoot SASS with .45 colt and intend to shoot some WASA matches with my 1911. I'd like to stick with the same powder and bullets but can not find any load data.

I used to use 4.2 grains of Clays with a 200 gr. lead SWC, Win cases, WSP priner, and 1.255 OAL.

I don't normally shoot lead anymore, but this was a very accurate and clean load for me in .45 ACP.

I use 4.5gr of Titegroup with 185gr SWC bullets. Very accurate, low recoil, and still meets IDPA power factor.

I've used both over time. I have settled in with Titegroup, mainly because it is a slightly lower pressure powder. I've been shooting 200gr and 230gr lead bullets. They are not the cleanest for competition shooting, but economical for practice. Rainier's copperwashed 200gr are my competition rounds now (with Titegroup). Can't recall my last powder charge for 200gr, but just shot some 230gr with basically a full load of 4.7 gr Titegroup. They were stiffer than my traditional USPSA rounds, but the pistol cycled much more efficiently. Make sure you match up your recoil spring weight to your "lower" power rounds. I have also tried Winchester WST powder this season. Good powder, but doesn't go quite as far as the Titegroup or Clays.

I also vote for Titegroup as it was cleaner burning for me than was Clays. I've also had good Luck with WST and West Coast 200 grn Flat Points. Titegroup and WST are made by Primex for their respective distributors, from the same base stock.
