SCHunter and MRMCPoarkchop would you like to see what happens with the Barnes Bullet ? The 185 gr? I was using for awhile and found good accuracy. Had my mind changed. I can post a Pic on the bragging board if you want to see the results of a lung shot.

Let me know.

I would agree. That was a poor performing bullet for sure! You post that pic on the bragging board!

OK Pic is up loaded to the bragging Board.

I checked MY Colt this weekend with the 200 gr XTP and I am satisfied with the results as far as accuracy. The XTP is what I wish to try soon.

You might check out the 45 super as well it's just different brass a few springs and a new firing pin stop and you can ramp it up pretty good I stopped far before I had any pressure signs but it wasn't comfortable o shoot off a bench really gave your wrist a wrenching lol best part is done right and it'll still run medium 45 acp loads so I practice with moderate cast loads and hunt with hammers

I still believe that a good bullet is still the biggest problem with hunting with the 45 ACP. JMHO.
Standard, +P, or Super Loads, we need a good bullet.

Cherokee, I agree. Wish we had a 230 gr jacketed bullet designed for hunting with the 45+p or Super. I've had pretty good results with a 250 gr wfn, but I've wondered how the Lehigh Extreme Penetrators would perform.

Understood - I was hoping that the 185 with a bit more velocity than the 230's would be ticket. Gonna give her a whirl this weekend as it stacks them out of my G21 (uncanned).

From my experience, using a 185 or 200 is like trying to push a nickel through something. You need the weight of a 230 or something similar...to get penetration. I agree with SChunter.
