    Loads

    Federal lists a lead HP that shoots good in lots of different guns. My personal choice.
    Federal Premium Ballistics

    But it is old technology and plain. If you prefer something fancy, try:
    Detail Page for Part # 23984

    I looked at Cor Bon, but all they list is "+P" which I guess means no 1870s vintage Colts or something, not sure if your gun is rated for high performance stuff. They list Glasers, JHP and DPX in .45 Colt.

    You might consider the standard pressure "heavy" .45 Colt loads from Buffalo Bore. They're a bit pricey, but hardly any good ammo is cheap these days.

    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    I got some Winchester Western Silvertip 225 grain hollow points yesterday to load up for self defense.

    An assailant can be said to be having a very bad day if he's fairly hit with any .45 Colt load.

    I don't generally stoke up my only .45 Colt for defensive duties and would use handloaded 250 grain SWC's if I did but have tried both the Federal and Winchester loads mentioned above that feature a 225 grain hollow point bullet and they were acceptably accurate and easily controllable. They look like a good choice.
