If you fire a .45ACP and then fire a 9mm,the difference is breathtaking!If you re-load both(as do I),the"recipes"are just as breatakingly different!!Standard load for the .45ACP is a 230-grain bullet and about 10grs of Unique(what I use).The 9mm Parabellum standard is a 115-grain bullet with about 6grs.of Unique.No Comparison!!!!!!
You're out of your mind for posting loads like that.
Children, do not attempt the previous loads. Do not try it at home. Do not try it anywhere.

It's generally a bad idea to quote handloading recipes in a general forum like this without some serious warnings. Especially one that is seriously over the max quoted loads.
Your load for .45 auto is 67% over Alliant's max load and almost 50% over Lyman's max load.
I'm not saying you shouldn't use a load that works for you, but it looks like you are treading on the ragged edge and it may not be a safe load for someone else.
How many grains of unique??????

You're shooting some wimpy loads .... my Rugers in 45Colt will throw a 360gr round at 1200 fps. Not too many guys are going to be getting up from that .. (like zero)

"Standard load for the .45ACP is a 230-grain bullet and about 10grs of Unique(what I use)."
Sounds a wee bit hot to me. I'm told that the military load is 6 grains of Unique. I used to use 7.5 grains of Unique and really shortened the life of the recoil springs of my 1911. The brass would eject straight up instead of out to the side with that load.

Do you really load 10 gr of Unique with 230 gr FMJ?
".45ACP is a 230-grain bullet and about 10grs of Unique"
WHAT??? Are you STUPID???
SAAMI Spec is for a 230gr 45 ACP using Unique is a max of 6.5 grains, NOT 10 grains!
Children, using the previously mentioned loads by bandleader for the 45 ACP may kill or injure you!
Your firearm may blow up in your face!
Loading a 9mm using a 115 grain bullet is a max of 6.1 grains.
