I've been using Ramshot X-Terminator for Hornady 55gr FMJs -

 

16" 1x7 (tested with CMMG, Sabre, and Yankee Hill barrels - give it about 25fps either way)

 

2.23 OAL

LC Brass

CCI #41

24.8gr - 2930fps

24.9gr - 3000fps

 

I have noticed the lighter loads give better accuracy by about .25 inch @ 100

Vmax Varmint round

AR15

20" Barrel

1/9 twist

All .223 Brass

24.7 grains H335

CCI 400 Small rifle primer

55 Grain Hornady Vmax ballistic tip

2.25" OAL

 

I have three AR-15s all with the same barrels. This has been shooting around 1.5 at 300 yards. The wild hogs here in West Texas never hear it coming.

 

Are you shooting them in the head or in the chest area? I've been trying to figure out a round that will work well on the pigs we have here in Louisiana. Some of them are pretty big and I know a 223 ain't getting through that plate. I do know it will work fine shooting them just behind the ear, though! :nt:

A couple 45 ACP loads that I worked up:

 

Target Load

 

Hornady 200gr LSWC

.452" Dia

Mixed Cases-WCC, R-P, Speer, TZZ Match

Hodgdon HS-6 7.5gr

CCI LP Primers

COL-1.190"

 

The most accurate target load I have for my RIA 1911. Palm sized 25yd groups with no flyers. Mild recoil, very fast back on target. A little dirty and a little smoky, but it's cheap to shoot :gun2:

 

 

SD Load (once I get to chrono it)

 

Hornady 230gr XTP/HP

.451" Dia.

Starline +P Cases

Hodgdon Longshot 6.8gr

CCI LP Primers

COL-1.200"

 

THIS IS A MAX LOAD ACCORDING TO HODGDON FOR A BULLET WITH LESS BEARING SURFACE THAN THE XTP AND IS LOADED .030" SHORTER THAN RECOMMENDED BY HORNADY. APPROACH WITH CAUTION! I used the +P cases for a little extra insurance. No pressure signs in MY gun. This is definitely a full house 230gr load. Recoil is very stiff, but not that bad. Follow up shots can be made fairly quickly once you are used to the recoil. My RIA 1911 throws these into 2" groups at 15yds consistently when I do my part.
