Winchester 230 gr HP 'Personal Protection' that I paid $32 for a box of 50. Hey, they go fast enough, AND they make a big hole. I think +p or +p+ is just overkill in .45 acp. Besides, the +p ammo puts undue stress on your pistol.

I have boxes of Winchester Ranger T-Series and Federal HST.
Both 230 gr +P.

I'm happy with either, but prefer Ranger Ts.

5" barrel factory estimate;
Fed HST 950 fps
Ranger T 990 fps

From my 3.9" HK45C I like a little extra kick in the champagne
Plus the Ranger Ts expand like crazy.

Well, let me pull this out...

Fed 230's HSTs in the Sig.

And it will be Win Ranger's 230's in the 1911's.

All standard velocity, because it works and ball for practice. And I have 357Magnums/Sigs and rifles for more speed.

These are Montana gold. I understand they use Gold Dots also.

I keep a Sig P220 loaded with185 grain silver tips. They are a bit 'old school' but so am I.

If you gun is all steel I would go with the 230gr HST +p.

If it is lightweight, I would use the regular HST, but you really do not need the +p if a 5" barrel. However, I found the +p's easy to handle in my all steel 1911's.

Other than copper bullets, I found that HST's expand the best.

I have read way too many stories of how certain light-weight bullets get diverted by criminal bones. So in my M1911A1 pistols there are 255gr bullets loaded to 850 FPS. No bone will stop/deflect this bullet very much. Now in my G17 I carry a WW 9mm 115gr JHP +p+ load. I suppose that this bullet is liable to be deflected by bones.

With all of these people carry .45s, how can there be any crime in the USA?

This would be my second choice if I ever decided to CCW with a .45.

Currently Underwood 230gr +P Gold Dot

I rotate between them and 230gr HST, 230gr Ranger T, 230gr XTP, 230gr Golden Sabre, 200gr +P Speer Gold Dot or 200gr +P XTP. Whew, I think that's it. No, sometimes I carry 185gr +P Golden Sabre too.
