    Same load for both. 6.O grains of Unique.

    I've shot literally 80-100,000 rounds loaded with that load.

    Wow, Bulleye has to be on of best powders for these guns. I use in my 357 is 6.7g with laser cast 158g for 1100pfs. This is a tack driver round. For the 45acp I shoot 5g with laser cast 230g for 900fps. I choose a lighter load for the 45 as it's intent was to be a slow moving gut tearing round. And you still get the satisfaction of power plus no lead leftovers to clean out. Anything over 1000fps is a waste in these type of gun. For these 2 guns this is my favorite powder by far.

    Do be careful loading Bullseye or other fast powder in .357 or other large cases. 4.5 gr B.E. is a good target load in .357 brass. Nine grains will demolish a good gun.

    I,ve loaded 5gr Bullseye in my 45acp for years, shot thousands of rounds. You can load alot of rounds out of a pound.
    For what it's worth.
