Has anyone tried to open this link? I'm curious to know if you can see the data...

I can.

I would think the barrel is most of the problem with that ammo.
A good Smith can throat the barrel and allow it to feed your ammo.
I’ve always stayed with ball ammo, the flat point ammo does nothing for me that the ball doesnt. And the ball feeds well.

Thanks, Bender! Lots of online chatter about .45 Auto Colt style frame and flat points. Serves me right for buying 500 FP bullets. Think I've found a very small window of tollerence for these. Will stick with RN for now on.

Sounds like you have worked out the load for that gun.
What kind of groups are you getting?
Thanks for the question about groups, Bender. At this point I do not have a setup to test groups. What would something like that look like. I'd like toake one.
