45 acp 185gr or 200gr

Getting ready to put in a order for some 45acp bullets. Thinking of buying 500 to 1000. There is a sale on Nosler 185gr, do these perform as well as say 200 or 230gr bullets. Only shot 230gr Winchester factory loads and they do well.

Well Nosler only makes 1 weight of 45 APC bullet which is the 185. They list it as a target bullet. I use them and they are very accurate. You can also use them for hunting or self defense since they are hollowpoints. I am not a competition shooter but a lot of competion shooters use the Nosler 185 gr. I say buy them and enjoy because Nosler bullets are top quality. I have 1200 sitting on my bench right now and use them for almost all my 45 shooting and reloading. I also use Hornady XTP's in 185 and 230 gr.

No, Nosler actually makes a 230grFMJ too. I have never had a Nosler bullet, rifle or pistol, not shoot well. Many guys that like spending the money love the 185gr for target work. IMO, buy 230gr from PrecDelta, way cheaper & for 95% of ones shooting, plenty accurate to 25yds. The MontanaGold are also exc accuracy wise & cheaper than the Nosler as well.

I always use 230 gr for target and CC in my 1911 in my XD 45 Compact I use mostly 230 gr but every now and then I will put some 185' through her at the range. My XD is the most reliable handgun I ever owned it just won't quit. I carry her everyday all day in my CrossBreed Supertuck
