"Excellent ammo, far more accurate than the Golden Saber 185 grain, shot side by side out of the same pistol (Sig 220 Equinox). Very fast delivery. Other sites I have seen charge over $20.00 for 20 rounds... CTD beats them hands down. Very satisfied."

"At the prices of 45 ammo, for a defensive load, you can't beat this. Ran this thru my HK USP long slide - fuctioned perfect, very accurate, very clean. No problems. Stock up now!! Good folks at CTD."

"I bought 100 rds of this ammo & ran 91 rounds of this ammo through my kimber eclipse pro. I saved 9 for if/when it hits the fan. Overall, I cannot complain. Federal product, so it is the quality that is expected. Hit low on the steel plates I shot @ for practice. I prefer 185 gr for less felt recoil.I will buy again."

"This ammo works GREAT put it threw an ATI FX and a Full size Colt, Funny thing when I pulled the targets back all the holes with this ammo were perfectly round and clean in the paper compared to the other ammo I was shooting, this stuff must be faster than other ammo"

"I am getting more partial to Federal ammo overall. It is cheaper than Winchester and feeds better in both of my 45s. Seems to burn alot cleaner than Remington and Win. But this 185 grain stuff-WOO HOO! In my Para Warthog it's the right stuff. Manageable recoil, reduced muzzle flip, doesn't hurt the hand. $20 a box seems like a bargain for quality JHPs. Highly recommend!! I am getting more!"

"If you own a small 45 like a Para Ordnance Warthog and do not care much for the recoil, stop hatin' the gun! I bought this Federal 185gr. and not only did it feed perfectly, but way reduced recoil. For a small gun and hand, this is the ticket!! And quality JHPs for $20 a box? Can't go wrong! Thanks CTD!!!"

"Shoots 1.25 in groups at 25 ft with my Kahr CW45. I chose it for the reduced recoil. Excellent ammo for a light weight gun."

"I am torn about this ammo. I think it is great ammunition, but my Rock Island Armory GI 1911 doesn't like to eat it. The profile of the hollow point just doesn't slide up the feed ramp. I'm thinking about getting a 24/7 Pro in .45 ACP. Maybe that will eat it up. It'd be a shame to not stock up and use a bunch of this, particularly at CTD's amazing price!"

"This ammo is one of the best deals out there. I could NOT find it at the other online sights I have used. Accurate, with very moderate recoil. At this price, it's great for both range work and personal defense. Nasty hollow points I am sure would do the job. I will buy again!!"

"This is awful ammo and you should not buy it because of how bad it is. I'm serious, don't even think about buying this. You'd better just leave this stuff for me. Just kidding!"

"I originally bought a few different types of ammo to try and get a feel for what my Para GI Expert 1911 likes. It shot everything I put through it but this ammo stood out to me. Shoots great and is inexpensive! My Citadel 1911c loves it too! Found my home defense/carry load. Will buy more!"

"Bought five boxes of this ammo to try out. Cheapest quality .45 HP you can get. 1 inch group, point of aim at 15 yrds, out of a Glock 21. This is as good as it gets for me out of any handgun. Mild recoil and no cycling issues. Ordered 10 more boxes. Get it while you can."

"Tried them out. Excellent accuracy! Expansion not consistent. Example three shots: 1. bullet totally destroyed, 2. bullet expanded like on the box, 3. bullet did not expand at all. In most cases, the little red \"expander\" came through undamaged."

"I have to tell you... this ammo works flawlessly out of my Glock 21SF! CTD definitely has their stuff together! I gave this ammo a rating of 5 because it is all that! Thanks for all your service and support!"

"This is nice quality ammo, but not for a 1911. The bullet does not taper down much. I tried it in my Rock Island 1911, Remington R1, and Taurus PT 1911. They gave me trouble chambering the first round. Every other round failed to feed. The nose of the round hits the feed ramp and doesn't feed up into the chamber. Only ammo I have had problems with. These guns have fed every other round I have put in them. This worked fine in the Springfield XD."

"Bought 5 boxes of this ammo to try out. Accurate with mild recoil. Bought 10 more boxes. This out of a out of A Glock 21sf and a 36. Function was perfect. Shot it through sheet rock. Hollow point clogged. I haven't tried it through wet phone books yet.This is great training and carry ammo. As inexpensive as most hard ball."

"Great ammo. Have cycled several hundred through both my Kimber and Ed Brown 1911s. Not one FTF or FTE."
