Soft. 45 Factory Ammo


Neomet

Recommended Posts

OK, not sure where to post so please feel free to move to a more appropriate catagory. I would like to shoot my .45 XD in Production from time to time and don't reload. What are some recommendations on soft shooting .45 ammo?

Thanks!

Federal Gold Medal Match Pistol Part # GM45B - 185 gr SWC @ 770 fps.

It is a pleasure to shoot, accurate as all can be. In my Colt Gold Cup, it feeds very well. You might try a box first before commiting to any volume as the SWC profile may or may not like the XD feed ramp geometery.

ETA - If this is a little too pricey, you might try the Winchester USA in 185gr. Not as heavy recoil as the 230gr stuff.

I normally reload lead bullets myself, but occasionally I need jacketed bullets and I've found the Blazer Brass 230 grain ball to be a good substitute. I've never shot it over the chronograph, but I'd guess it clocks around 775-800 fps. A local dealer routinely puts them on sale for $9.00 for a box of 50.
