I spent today visiting some local gun shops and picked up a variety of .45ACP ammo with the anticipation of target practicing and wet pack testing them all. I plan on getting some Winchester T-Series (RA45T and RA45TP), but until I do get the T-Series and test all of the ammo, which would you carry? I'll probably end carrying the RA45TP's, but I won't get any of those until well into next year. What should I use until then?
Once I do the wetpack testing, I'll post pictures and result of all the ammo. For now, these are the stats on the box. Some don't include any info or even a bullet model or type, I just have what was immediately available or whatever I could find.
