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.
That was a very polite posting. I have to work on my tact but loads that are that hot are very bothersome to me. I have a pet load for a 45 Colt that goes to double digits with a 255 grain bullet and I won't post it at all. Especially since it's only used in a Ruger Blackhawk.
