I'm a big fan of Federal and WWB, I always go with the cheaper of the two, usually Federal.

Yes, those are good ammo to use, especially if it's .45 ACP.
If you care about accuracy, take notes and shoot well. You will determine "your best" ammo.

Whichever ammo the gun eats best and what YOU shoot best with is the best...

Money considerations...Federal, Winchester, Blazer...all good quality practice ammo, fairly inexpensive...fairly...45's ain't exactly cheap to shoot...

Blazer aluminum case is good for range time, if you are not worried about reloading.
