Favorite powder for 45 ACP

I load a lot of 45 ACP. Primarily practice rounds with 200 or 230 grain FMJ bullets. The powders I use are Unique, Power Pistol, No. 5 and 800-X.

HS-6 is a 9mm major load, I would definitely not be loading a 124 to 1340fps out of a factory block barrel. That is begging for trouble, the unsupported chamber can (will) cause a case failure and possible detonation, which will probably destroy your gun. I have seen too many cracked Glock frames, slides, barrels... All from doing stupid stuff when loading. 9mm Major or similar +P+ loadings are dangerous without a fully supported chamber. Be careful.
