There probably isn't a consensus but I have to ask, is there a current favorite 185 grain coated bullet for 45?

My favorite is the Brazos 180 SWC (which actually weighs 182 or so).  https://www.brazosprecision.com/

Shot off a bench at 25 yards.  The 3 high were called.  I’m satisfied.

180 Brazos work well. (Weigh just shy of 185)

I like Bayou Bullets 185 grain SWC, Brazo's 180's are nice as well.

I'd say, any one that will group less than the ten ring at 50 yards. I wonder if anyone has done any tests like that?

Ashley, your Brazos shot well yesterday when my fresh ammo failed to cycle.  Crying or Very sad   What crimp do you use?

They have two at that weight. Bevel base or flat base?

Barb:
My “standard” crimp is .467 I only mess with it if that doesn’t shoot for some reason.  And I was glad to help! 

S148:
These are Flat Base as I recall.
