Them has gotta be some smokin' rounds: my Hornady manual says 8.0 gr of CFE Pistol is the max load for a 185 gr 45 ACP round. I actually just got done doing 300 rounds of 185 gr. FTX bullets (the same bullets that Hornady uses in their Critical Defense round) with 7.6 gr of CFE, with the intent to mimic the 45 ACP Critical Defense ballistics.

Regardless, congrats on the present! Having a wife that will buy you what you want, instead of a spatula, is a treasure.
