Hottest off the shelf .45 FMJ?

Okay, recently I decided to consolidate calibers to stock for. I still have my LCP, 92, and revolvers, but ended-up with G21 and 30, both Gen 4's. I immediately ordered a 9 round mag for the 30, a couple extra 13 rounders, and two boxes of 230 gr. HST's. I have enough old sealed 230 gr. FMJ's for "Just in case". Feel pretty good.
However, a little every month, I've decided to start rotating my old WWII era FMJ's with new ammo.
So finally the ?, does any of the off the shelf ammo stand out as a little hotter than the others?
The HST rounds seem a little warm and are providing me a different POI than the old stock.
Thanks guys!

Thanks guys, I know about underwood, have some in both 9 and 10mm. But looking for stuff I can just stop by the LGS and pick up.
I've heard Blazer is pretty good. No?
ALSO, I've wondered something, but don't think it's big enough for a whole new thread.
Will a G21 slide work on a G30 frame?

Thanks kirgi, I'll look for them.
Someone suggested I shoot 185 or 200 gr. off the shelf FMJ to close the gap in POI. Thoughts?

Speer loads a 200 grain +P TMJ that matches up with their Gold Dot.

I believe Fiocchi fmj's tend to run a little hotter than your standard .45 acp load. I would just order Underwood or Buffalo Bore if I wanted the hottest production stuff out there.
