I'd like to know what everyone's favorite .45 FMJ ammo is? I prefer Federal American Eagle and I prefer to buy American ammo whenever possible. More specifically - what do people prefer to use in their Glock 30's?

What ever is cheap and goes bang. If that's American made great. If not oh well. Prefer brass but not absolute in that requirement.

The last full case (1000) I had was Aguila 230 grain FMJ from Mexico. Not a bad round in the bunch.

I don't reload, so I favor Blazer. It's cheap, it's clean, and I've never had a problem with it.

But I'll certainly buy almost any non-Russian brand that I can get a good deal on.

I like the Speer Lawman. I bought a few cases of American Eagle one time and had around 20 or 30 rounds that had the primers in sideways. It kind of soured me on AE. I haven't bought any since.

Well, since I got back on here anyway "for today,' I'll toss in ....

I like the CCI Brass brand 230gr FMJ and carry them in my EDC or my 230gr FMJ handlaods.. Be it a G30 (on ocassion) or my EDC M1911.


Good shooting.

Adios this time (i hope) haha ;)

Fiocchi shoots well for me, and it groups better than WWB, Wolf, and UMC too.

I encounter Magtech ball pretty frequently in my locale, it shoots well in my .45s.

I like the Speer Lawman.

Just bought a case of 185 FN for $299. Never shot it before. Looks wicked, like it would be just fine for carry ammo too. That flat nose is either going to set up one hell of a bow wave or start tumbling as soon as it hits something. Anyone familiar with this round?

It used to be Winchester White Box.

Now it is S&B 230 Gr. FMJ.

If you people ever calculated the price difference between buying factory .45 ACP & reloading your own you would faint. No factory ammo can compete with a top notch reload.

Double Tap 230 grain TMJ, American Eagle 230 grain FMJ, and Blazer 230 grain FMJ. All three run good in my Glock 36. The DT is a little hotter than the AE and Blazer. The hottest FMJ I have tried is the Buffalo Bore 230 grain FMJ flat point. The BB is a good pick for deep penetration. I would not have a problem packing any of these loads in the field. If I could only carry one load in my Glock for all uses it would be the American Eagle 230 grain FMJ.

My 2nd gen G-20 is proving to be very picky about ammo and accuracy. American Eagle 230 fmj is the only ammo so far that it shoots really well.

Shouldn't you try some 10mm ammo in that G20? :embarassed:

Some of us can afford to not be interested. I do collect my brass and give it to a re-loading buddy.

My favorite is .230 gr ball Speer Lawman, I use it for practice and carry in my G36. I also use Ga. arms ammo and American Eagle when I can get a good deal on it.

Yep. One may not be interested now, but down the road may present a different landscape. I was savin' brass for a few years before I jumped on the relaodin' ship. If ya' buy know, just bits at a time, you won't short change your self with all at once relaoding costs.

Here, here!! I like my 8.4 gr of HS6 and Hornady's 230 gr FMJ-RN or FN. Gives me a large ragged hole at 7-10 yards...Lawman ain't too bad either. I have to do this as Im no Donald Trump...or Senoir Gates. reloading keeps me pretty sane and has so since 1969. I'll give it up when they pry my cold, dead fingers from the press.

Whatever Walmart or Ammunition To Go has in brass-cased, non-steel jacketed at the lowest price.

Once you calculate the time investment in the reloading process, you might faint at how cheap factory ammo really is. 'Course you can rationalize anything you enjoy doing so to each his own.
