Where to find .45  loaded bullseye ammo Empty Where to find .45 loaded bullseye ammo

Post by K38 Wed Mar 13, 2024 2:44 pm

Is there a reliable source for .45 ACP Bullseye ammo?  I don't have any reloading gear and I really don't have anywhere to do it.  I would like to shoot my wad guns but the Federal stuff is just very thin on the ground as always.  If you have a source for loaded .38 special HBWC ammo that would be most welcome too.

Thanks!

Federal has both the 45 185 SWCFMJ and 38 special 148 WC in stock online.

Several online dealers have had the 45 cheaper than Federal recently.

Atlanta Arm shows the 45 185 JHP load (~800 fps) in stock ay $33.00 /50
45 ACP | 185GR JHP | Elite Ammo (atlantaarms.com)


Another option is the Wilson Combat remanufactured 45 200gr lead SWC at 770fps.
They seemed to have it available for most of the pandemic shortage.

Atlanta or a custom loader is typically where "factory" ammo is found.

As far as 38 HBWC, Precision Delta is a place I would look

I’ve shot some very good 45 ammo from Loader Monkey.  I know Jack Abrams and can vouch for his integrity.  He is currently in South Africa supporting his son who is shooting on a Young Eagles team for the USA.  They came second to the South Africa team but bested teams from England and Australia who normally are tough to beat.   Jack is primarily a rifle shooter and his ammo production favors rifles.  But his pistol ammo has been used by the USAR team.

Funny that an ammo vendor would use a g03rnm3nt organ (fakebook) as their sole vehicle for sales.

Though interested I won't go there / make FB acct / login

Am I reading this correctly…$74 for 50 Rds of Fed GMM in 45acp?!?! That is insane and more than twice the price of Atlanta Arms.

Not sure this counts as BE ammo, but I was able to get some during the (one!) day when they would ship to CA:

Felt recoil doesn't seem much different than 230 to me, FWLIW
