Not yet. In my 12" Contender barrel that particular load gets 2950 fps. Just for curiosity I'll chronograph that load in the rifle, as well. Should get around 3300-3400 fps. When I start load development, I'll tweak that load and try some other powders, as well. ...

Right now it's got a Simmons 44 Mag, 6.5-20X scope on top. I bought the scope many years ago at a good price for my son's 223. I later upgraded gun to better glass so the Simmons was available.

Between the two guns you're looking at, I'd go w/ the 1911. Personally, I prefer a SAO over a SA/DA gun. As far as weight, they're pretty close. Recoil wise, the 9mm does recoil less than the 45, but the 45 is still manageable, especially w/ sufficient training. 9mm ammo is also a little cheaper tha...

If that's the case, you should be fine w/ a 22-250. Compared to the 223 Rem, when using comparable bullet wts, it'll add bout 300 fps to what the 223 will do....
