Got a question for the gang.

I want to know if it is safe to use off the shelf, swaged lead rounds in a .45APC? I'm shooting outdoors. I read the sticky, but I just wanted to be very sure that I wouldn't have bullets ripping themselves apart.

I'm just trying to make a bunch of plinking rounds, nothing special.

Also, what is the difference between bullets measuring .451 and .452? which ones are used for .45APC? All the solid lead ones seem to be .452. dunno, you tell me.

Thanks for the help.

I use Oregon Trail and like em. Use some Lyman cast at home and they work well too.

Leads are .452 and copper clad are .451.

Both work in my XD-45

I use the 230 grain types.

After 9 years of using various 200 grain, lead semi-wad cutters at 800 fps, no problems yet in 1911 style pistols. Since they are down loaded, I have to replace the recoil spring, other than that, let the lead fly!!!
