I used a lot in my 9mm.
For your 45acp, if you go with a 200gr LSWC you'll have a pretty narrow range of charge weights. From a published starting charge of 5.2 gr to max of 5.7 but if it's as clean burning as I found it to be in both shotshells and 9mm, you'll enjoy that 6lbs of PB. Should be able to make noise and throw lead for a long time with that much.
So here a pick
Here the first hundred round through it run flawlessly
And here it is after the hundred round. Sorry no paper this time just plates
It sure got dirty by the muzzle.
Next time out will try to get a grouping target.
So far I am very happy with it
