    These are the people that I get my lead bullets from www.friendswoodbullet.com . Looks like they went up a bit in price but still good bullets. LSW 200 grain 500 for $37.75, RNL 230 grain 500 for $38.24. Their shipping is $15.00 flat rate for I believe up to 60 pounds.

    I really like the nice clean holes of the LSWs. I'm using 4.3 grains of Bullseye and setting OAL at 1.245". You just want to be about a finger nails' thickness from the shoulder of the bullet. Not a screamer load but real good for target work. Use your barrel to check overall length. They should "plop" in and be flush with the barrel hood.

    Good luck

    Update: The bullets I buy locally are made by X-Treme Bullets They were originally Western Nevada / West Coast Bullet Inc. and were sold a couple times. Their 230gn plated 45 are listed at $70.50 shipped for 500. The last I bought locally were about $63.

    My fav fmj supplier has been mentioned but if you can tolerate the lube and smoke lead will work too.

    I know very little about reloading, but had a guy at my LGS load some .45 acp to punch holes with the PM45. He used Winchester WST and Berrys plated 45 Cal 185gr HBRN. WOW!, I can't believe how accurate and soft recoil. At 25' I can put most in the same hole. Makes it more fun to shoot.

    Been using these for awhile. Good quality, priced fairly. https://www.bobsbullets.net

    Try his 160gr 45. Light charge of BE. You will have to lighten your recoil spring. Accurate, cheap Bullseye round.

    I like the polymer coated lead bullets. Less mess than wax coated lead. Cheaper than plated bullets (last time I looked) OK for use in polygonal barrels.

    Berry’s plated. I’ve loaded a few thousand Acme red coated and they shoot equal to Berry’s just more smoke. The cost being equal I’ll stick with Berry’s. The Bayou green also shoot very well.
