Just a quick question to ask your favorite 230gr bullet for a target load in 45 GAP. Looking for something affordable and in bulk.

Also, would you please give me your COL? Thanks, OD.

Although the above three shoot well in GAP's, I prefer 200-gr Montana Gold at 1.070 inches.

Danny - I am using 230gr Winchester Ranger SXT for SD. Do you think the 200gr. Montana Gold would provide a sufficient practice load or should I stick with 230gr. target bullets? Thanks, in advance, OD.

I think the 200's will be fine for practice.

So, do you use their 200gr JFP?

I presently use Montana Gold 200-gr JFP's for practice, and, when I shoot a GAP in competition, then use Sierra 200-gr bullets. A good powder to work with is Titegroup. I presently carry Federal 230's.

Danny: Thanks. If you have time, I would like to know what made you decide upon these two bullets:

Practice - Montana Gold 200gr JFP - cost about $17 per 100
(as opposed to Rainer or xTreme at about $13 per 100)

Match - Sierra 200gr. FPJ Tournament Master - cost about $25 per 100
(as opposed to Montana Gold or other).

Just learning. Thank, in advance, for your time. OD

The Montana Gold is a very well made bullet that is worth every penny. I often use them in IDPA and USPSA competition, and also use their 147-gr 9mm bullet exclusively. The expensive Sierra bullet is the most accurate bullet I've ever used, but it is far too costly for practice, so I reserve their use for GSSF competition.

For the ultimate in accuracy, try the 200-gr Sierra over 4.6-gr of VV N310--expensive bullets, expensive powder, spectacular results.

Danny: Have you used the Montana Gold 230gr FMJ? If yes, your thoughts and COL used?
Again, I really appreciate your help! OD

I've only used 200-gr bullets in both .45acp and .45gap reloads, never any 230's. The Montana Golds are fully enclosed--no exposed lead.

1.13

I'm glad I checked my notes, cause I was about to give you my 45 auto OAL for them...:supergrin:


they're a fine plinking bullet (real FMJ too, not "plated") and cheaper than Berry's plated .
Which I've also used.
Berry's 185gr plated HBRN, OAL 1.11
