45 ACP load data

5 grains of Bullseye under a lead 230 grain roundnose bullet and a CCI Large Pistol Primer will give you about 825 fps.
As I mentioned in an earlier post today, make sure your expander ball doesn't exceed .450" in diameter and be sure to use a slight taper crimp. Stay the hell away from the roll crimp dies that used to come with RCBS dies - they still might, it's been years since I purchased new dies - as the cartridge headspaces on the case mouth. Besides, a roll crimp will tend to cause a feeding problem.
