    With the 45 starting out at almost 1/2 inch in diameter, all I consider is reliability, accuracy and price.
    Yeah, that, and also that .45 ACP has never been accused of being a derelict and over penetrating round in the first place. Heck, it's lucky if it can get their on time.

    It's a bit low out to about fifteen yards, then holds true to about thirty. About a six-inch drop by fifty.

    I like this tune a lot, most likely because it was about the "foty four", which holds a mythical place in my mind,

    Dirty Hairy arrived in 1971. It took the Rolling Stones around two years to come up with Heartbreaker.

    I have a still unworn Akubra Campdraft that I refuse to put on my head. I'm afraid someone will mistake me for foty four advice because I look like Elmer Keith.

    I've been shooing 230 gr hardball for target practice and Speer God Dots 230 LE for carry. Never had to shoot anyone with me 45 so I have no experience as to effectiveness. From what I read, the Speer God Dots 230 LE expand to almost 70 cal, and penetrate 14 inches.

    Wilson Combat has a nice right-up about carry 200 or less grain bullets in short barreled .45's. Not so much for effectiveness, but more for gun function.

    Finishing up the last of some Winchester Super-X 45 acp 185 Grain Silvertip hollow points in my XDs. I ran these for years, in my Detonics Combat Master (which is a safe queen now).

    230 XTP pushed by a good dose of Unique, same for all 45 in the house wether large or small.
