    Hi, all,

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

    Thanks,

    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):
    S&B
    Winchester White Box (Winchester USA)
    Federal American Eagle (my personal favorite)
    Fiocchi
    Georgia Arms

    I would not recommend:
    Wolf
    Remington UMC

    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.

    :uhoh:
