Who makes good .45ACP target loads for the guy who's too lazy to reload?

My experiences only, Your Mileage Will Vary:
Sellier & Bellot, Czech made, pretty good ammo for practice.
USA Brand, Also Known As Winchester white box...good stuff 100-round "Value Pack" at Wal-mart about $19.97 per box of 100
Magtech...good stuff, sometimes on sale at local stores of $12/50
Save your brass...Commercial Reloader near me does a good job. National Bullet Company, Eastlake, OH. about $8 per 50 for 230-gr ball

After I can't count how many thousands of .45 ACP rounds fired, for general target and plinking I suggest (all 230 grain ball):
Winchester White Box (Winchester USA)
Federal American Eagle (my personal favorite)
I would not recommend:

If you mean "real" target shooting for accuracy, Federal Gold Medal Match. Winchester Super-Match and Remington's metal case wadcutter match ammo would be worth a look too.
If you mean blasting for fun, the best cheap bulk stuff I've tried is S&B in .45 ACP and 9x19.

I took it to mean REAL target ammo. 230 grain WCMC, also.

Sean is right. I should have read the question with greater care and not assumed "fun target" (versus "real target") work.
