It’s getting there. This one likes little slower (< 800 FPS). They start spreading out above that. This was at a FULL 25 yards with hands rested.
2- 5 shot groups

The 7 shots at the top were 1-3/8”. The other 3 pushed It out to 2-1/4”.
It still shoots better than I can.. going to try a few more loads.

Just curious. Any reason you didn't go with a ramped barrel? I feel they feed better.

I built a 6" 45 for my brother and we went with the ramped barrel. Also converted his Auto Ordnance 10mm to ramped (of course it is far more important in a higher pressure cartridge).

I would also starve if I tried to make a living at it.

I have never had a failure to feed due to the pistol. My pistols shoot RN, HP, WC, everything.

A failure to feed is usually caused improper shooting or magazine problems.
