What ammos do you guys recommend or recommend I stay away from?
Good, better, or best is largely a matter of opinion.
I've used Federal, Remington, and Winchester with good results. I would not rate any of them as "better" than the other.
If you clean your pistol after you shoot it, it doesn't matter if one make of ammunition is a little dirtier than the next.
As far as reliability goes, I've never had a problem with any of those three. None have ever failed to go bang in the many thousands of rounds I've shot of each of them. Whatever Wal-Mart or an online ammo distributor has in stock is what I buy.
Oddly enough, in all the rounds I've put down range through three Colt 1911's, a SIG P220, HK USP, and Glock 21 the ammunition has never been a problem for any of them.
