The great thing about he 45acp, there are few bad choices. I would shy away from prefragmented & FMJ or solid lead, but most any of the majors JHP from 185gr-230gr, non +P work fine. Just make sure you test them in your gun, regardless of what you are told. Trust but verify.
"Given adequate penetration, a larger diameter bullet will have an edge in wounding effectiveness. It will damage a blood vessel the smaller projectile barely misses. The larger permanent cavity may lead to faster blood loss. Although such an edge clearly exists, its significance cannot be quantified".
