1200fps is warm for a 230gr 45acp! What barrel length were you using?
I handloaded some 230gr JHP's near that range for my Ruger Blackhawk using +p brass, but still under Super pressure, just to hunt with something a little different.
Don't know if I'd use those for the Camp Carbine personally.
Great little rifle, but not really designed for very hot loads.

In my experience with the 45 carbine, there is negligable gain in velocity over a 5" barrel with factory ammo. Some gain typically, but nothing like you see in a 9mm or .357. Maybe only 50fps gain with some factory loads.

With slightly lighter, lead bullets, and powders like Bluedot, I could increase
velocity to higher levels in the carbine barrel, yet still be kind to the gun.
