What ammo do you use in your 1911?

I recently got a Ruger SR1911 and I need some hollow points for when I carry it. I have used and carry various types of ammo. For my .38 I have Critical Defense in it, for my 9mm I am using Speer Gold Dots, and in my Glock 23 I am using Federal HST's.

What defense ammo do you use in your 1911's?

I don't carry a .45 very often, but when I do, it's usually a compact, so I opt for a bit less bullet weight to keep the velocity up. I carry either:

CCI Blazer 200 JHPs
or
Fiocchi 200 XTP HPs

The 1911 I now have is a just issued ithaca, will get it worked over and carry the round I always use in my .45 pistols: Federal 230 Hydra-Shoks. Same point/print as cheaper ball for practice, good results in what I have shot into from test to deer.

Any JHP load from any well known maker is fine with me. I think they are all 90% equal at the end of the day. Pick one based on price, availability or a pretty box and run with them I am using PDXs right now because I got a good price on them.

I am also fine with FMJs in .45 ACP. I am not picky

Most commonly Remington 230g Bonded Golden Sabers, but I am comfortable with most any modern so called High Tec rounds.....Ranger T-Series, Hydra Shok, Gold Dot, etc.
