This was caused by my Springfield Armory MC Operator and a 100 round Winchester white box. 230 grain fmj at 15 yards, and it will do the same at 20 yards. It's cheap ammo, but it shoots descent.

You just need to consider reloading.

Get a good manual, Hornady, Lyman, or Speer.

I've got a Lee Loadmaster press and accessories listed for sale here. All you need is dies, powder, primers, brass, and bullets.

I like Lee's stuff because it's very affordable and good quality. Dillon is easily the top tier stuff, but it can get complicated with all the add-ons and it's definitely not inexpensive.

A lot of top marksmen like LEE.

My gear is a pastiche of Hornady, Lyman, and Dillon

and RCBS.

I really like the Dillon scale for pistol loads. It costs

more, but is much more accurate.

So basically I should probably mix and match parts for a good reloading set up.

The best .45 ACP ammo is the flavor you can afford to stock multiple cases of at all times.

Thanks to therewolf for using the word pastiche in a sentence!
I consider it my vocabulary reminder of the day.

Yes, most reloaders eventually end up with a pastiche of tools from different manufacturers based on needs over time.

Forster, Redding, MEC, Herters, Pacific, Hornady, RCBS, Dillon, Lyman, Lee and others all make (or have made) good reloading tools.

Maybe RCBS...

My point is that while you CAN go with one brand name,

and some do, many of us get items based on

quality, price, or personal preference paradigms.

There! I used " paradigm", also.
