What Brand Of 45 Acp Are You Using?

Have had good luck with S&B - however - no one carries it much anymore and even getting hard to talk the local SOT's into ordering it.
Appreciate any ideas - on line or off (note use to load everthing that I shot, with no problems for a couple dozen years, however time is too short and can either shoot/clean or reload ... not both).

I have never had a problem with Federal American Eagle.

Oh, my reloads are awesome as well.

Of course, if the primer's suck or the powder's just gone bad, well..... There's not a whole hell you can do about that.
I've fired everything from wadcutters, Argitinnie, Russian, original GI, reloads, ball, lead ball to high price ammo and it all seems the same to me. Maybe you just got a bad batch from the factory.
Suggest you contact the factory and let them know.

Don't knock it until you try it.
I took 2000 rounds to the range the other day and it probably cost me less than $175.
So in a way you are right, Life is too short, you need to save money for retirement so one should reload.

I am retired and have neither the time nor the desire for "ammunition manufacturing". I try to get my guns out once a month weather permitting. A 1500 round trip is about normal using Wolf in four of the five machineguns. I also use it in all of my handguns and a couple of 223 semis. I would guess I have used at least 20,000 rounds in 9mm, 40S&W, 45 and 223. I've had one FTF in all that time. That was a 40 that had a bad primer in my Sig 229. It works for me.
