    Just purchased a 45 auto. Any recommendations on practice ammo. I use Winchester 9mm White Box for my 9.

    Thanks

    WWB or Federal from Walmart seems to work well.

    Ummmm- The Sparky Forum is 3 pages over......:D

    If you are not a reloader, the CHEAP aluminum cased Blazer .45 shoots very well in all of my 45s. Disgusting, but I have one 1911A1 that likes it better than anything else I have fed it.

    Go figure.

    Any of the brands handled by Walmart do fine in my pistols & unless you find a really good sale on-line with freight paid, is probably about as cheap as you'll find. The Academy here has the Blazer, but price it too high.

    What's scary is the last time I was at a range (last Friday) two guys begged me (aggressively) for 100 .45 brass casings. Winner offered to clean-up all my mess... Including 500 .22s, boxes, paper, and a couple of handfuls of .357 & .40. That was discussing, but I guess it was the green thing to do...?

    Check sportsmansguide.com they have a lot of sales. If not Walmart brands work rather fine too.

    If you are not a reloader the Herter brand sold by Cabelas works in all my 1911 Colts. I use it for shooting in the desert as most cases can not be found after firing anyway. It is steel case Berdan primed. I picked up a 500 round case at Lehi, Utah last month.;)

    The Walmart WWB and Federal are what I always shoot. Works just fine every time.
