    Yeah cheap is a thing of the past. Bets thing is to just swallow hard and buy in bulk once or twice a year.

    I reload .45 and I will still pick up a couple boxes of it when I see it cheap.
    I suggest you bite the bullet per say and just get yourself into reloading.

    Imagine living in my part of the country (MA) where reloading components and live ammunition is not allowed by our AG to be sent through the mail. There is no law against it other then our own AG bullying retailers that have done so into not wanting to deal at all with Massholes.

    I have not yet found a brass/aluminmum cased factory made .45ACP FMJ round that did not go bang and my Springer GI did not happily digest. Frankly I have good luck with all the steel cased stuff too.

    Since I do reload I would favor the brass cased stuff (just to scrounge the empty cases) from ANY manufacturer.

    IMHO if your 1911A1 will not work well with any brand 230gr FMJ? It needs repair work.

    What Josh says.
    Support the sponsors all I can. Shoot the good stuff in all my guns not always the best price, (cheapest). Do most of my shooting now with roll my owns and never run out.

    BTW, Where in Wyoming is Texas? Wyo is a big state with beautiful big mountains so I suppose you are some little place at the base of some of these. I'll keep looking and if I find you I will invite you out to the ranch to shoot some Prairie dogs for a day or two. LOL

    Don't know if this is "cheap" but the "remanufactured" stuff is less than I can buy in the store and no tax and shipping included in price........
