    i really like pdx1 225gr. most "premium" brands of hollow point will be adequate its more of a preference and opinions between the premium brands.

    Nothing wrong with a heavy lead SWC bullet for that .45 LC.

    Those who fear heat-seeking bullets are those who are full of hot air!

    .45 Colt? IMO, anything, but a hard cast SWC wouldl make a big, deep hole.

    For all kinds of uses around the home and ranch I use a 255gr lead bullet at 900fps. This is also a good load for my Marlin carbine. Its very effective with soft lead bullets. DR

    Load some of these on top of 8.5 to 9.5 grs of Unique. Cast out of 97% lead and 3% tin, size to fit your chambers and you will be in good shape for a defensive round.

    Winchester Ranger T Bonded +P 230 grain or Federal HST +P 230 Grain Bullet from SGAmmo. All come in 50 rd. boxes. I doubt that you can find PDX-1's in a 50 round box as they are marketed to us non LEO types

    I use the Sierra 8820 or 8805 in both of my 45 Colts. 230 and 240 gr. They make a 185 gr 8800, but have not tried it. I think the 45 colt is one of the easier rounds to reload. Plus you never have to chase your brass.

    Ranger T's 230gr 50 round box also know as BLACK TALONS. That's all I will carry. They get HUGE! Here: a3fbl4.jpg
