Your Favorite Range Ammo

In your opinion what is the cleanest, cheapest, bestest range ammo for a 45 ACP. I've been shooting WWB and it's been good ammo but I understand is quite dirty. Is there something cleaner?

Freedom Munitions 45acp reloads fit the bill in the past but that may have changed. Last few times I tried to order from them online everything was out of stock.

So I have no real answer for you.

Fiocchi is what I have shot for a while now. Seems considerably cleaner than WWB and just as reliable.

I'm shooting both Freedom Munitions and Great Lakes Ammo reloads. Yes I bought that much ammo from Freedom when they would have their free shipping sales. I've been getting their emails again and am thinking of placing an order with them the next time they offer free shipping.

Virtually all my range ammo in 9mm and .45 are my handloads. Cheap, accurate, completely reliable and consistent, and as the brass was all mine to start with, even cheaper.

Here's a mild caveat to handloaders of the .45 ACP if you use Blazer Brass el cheapo for the brass. All this stuff has small primer pockets, and will completely ruin your day when it gets mixed with all the usual LG primer pockets on a progressive machine. Expletives have been known to fly...... yea be warned! Buy and shoot the good stuff!

I’m also still using some Freedom Munition which is good stuff. Just now getting into the LAX ammo and it too seems to be good.
