What to get if you can't get the ammo you want?

Howdy,
I have a preference in self-defense .45 auto ammunition. My question is if I can't locate and purchase Federal HST2, or Winchester RA ammo, what would be an effective non +P round to evaluate? Thanks for your experienced opinions.

Any premium defense hollowpoint would be fine. Some are better than others for certain things, but when it comes down to it, they all do the job.

230fmj hardball does everything you need but expand, and it will never shrink!

Just picked up some bonded WW230jhpPDX but haven't tried them yet, not +p but claim 920fps.

Just be patient and search online.
Always keep some in reserve to carry in case you run out.

If you are totally out of standard pressure HST or Ranger T I think Gold Dots are probably the next best thing.

Thank you Gentlemen for your responses. I don't want to use +P, so the PDX or the Goldots might be worth the try. The Goldots come in 230 grain. If you can
Iceman cHucK, let me know how they work out.
Take care.
pascal

If you can't be with the ammo you love, love the ammo you're with.

My apologies to CSNY.

Hey weybug,
I thought that sounded familiar. And besides I think I like CSN better.

I can never keep up with which song goes with which assemblage, so I call them all CSNY.

There are few bad choices in the 45acp. Hornady 185gr-230gr, Rem. 185gr & 230grGS, 185gr-230gr SGD, etc.

Thanks Gentlemen for the recommendations. Especially thanks for that site.
Not to hijack my own thread but Neil Young is a great songwriter and has a definite place in Rock and Roll, just not with CSN.

Fred, are the recommendations you're giving the good or the bad?
