Ok, I am back. Things have been pretty exciting in the power-loading world. I have continued to learn more ways to increase horse-power, majoring in the .45 acp at this time. Many have said that the .45 acp is an enemic load at best, with pressure limitations. So, what do they do? Buy a .460 Rowland conversion kit and increase the pressure threshold. I am here to tell you, that the conversion kit is not necessary. A 1911 .45 acp is the same gun that the 9mm and the .40 S&W are used in (sometimes the 10mm). These are high-pressure cartridges. A 1911 can be built up to handle loads that will make a 10mm or .460 Rowland look like a baby. I am thinking about having some Power-Loading seminars to teach people how to do this with the .45 acp or any other caliber. Elmer Keith is not dead, he is hanging out with Elvis.
