Recommendations For 45 ACP Ammo For HD & Range?
 
I'm sure this has been discussed before but I figured with new ammo coming out all the time I'd ask for recommendations on the best HD rounds and also some good cheap range ammo. I've used American Marksman in the past for range ammo for my 380 without any problems. Thanks.

I use 230gr hydrashock. I load 230gr cast for practice.

I find myself just carrying fmj a lot. Altho ill prolly be using just plain lead more often as i get into this single action revolver thing.

Im tired of buying pricey hp ammo.

That is why I try to match handloads to carry ammo. I'll shoot a box of my actual carry ammo every few months to make sure they are hitting where I expect.

Good post.

I use 185 gr +P Golden Sabers for carry, and cast lead for practice.

I carry Series 70 gov. w/Black Talons. Tested them many years ago. Practice w/ 200gr truncated cone. If the time comes to use the Talons the target of their affection will be close enough to put them wherever I want.
