If you can find them 230s are like $23/ 100.

Makes reloading hardly worth the effort.

“So, how much are 230 gr bullets going for?”


.45 ACP

230gr round nose FMJ = ~14.2 cents ea.
Large pistol primer = ~2.5 cents ea.
Powder = ~1 to 1.5 cents / round, depending on the powder type
Total = ~18 cents ea.

Plus labor, and of course, the start-up costs…

The best thing about reloading is that you are not limited like you are with factory ammo, as far as bullet weight and type, powder weight and type, velocity, etc. Loading match-grade rifle rounds (for long range) is where you really save $, but pistol rounds are a lot easier and quicker to load.

The hidden cost of pistol reloads is the brass. I would try to kidd myself into believeing that i was loading .45acp for .8c ea but the truth of the matter was that the cases are only decent for about 6 reloads and then thy are pretty much toast so i was buying new brass every coupple of months and not counting that into the equasion..... Match day you want to have brass with less than 4 reloads on it.. YMMV

You shouldn't have glass containers around the hot tub. That's dangerous.

Precision saves lives.

It's all about getting in, doing your job, and getting out with minimal contact and loss of life. 25 years ago we'd just carpet bomb a target, now you can precision track specifics, saving lives.

How many countries do you think would bother doing that?

Ironic given that the precision pertaining to this subject here is aimed to kill.

Let us save lives by inventing a precision killing instrument ..... :-)

Question,,,

has anyone used a suppressor on a .45 cal? Being a subsonic round- i was wondering if that was the quietest for using a silencer on? As opposed to fortys or 9s...

Exactly!

Rarely if ever, that is the definition of precision.

Not particularly. The problem with the .45 ACP in suppression is with the increased diameter of the barrel you get a decrease in efficiency of the suppressor. So even though it's inherently a "subsonic" round, it is still one of the loudest suppressed pistol rounds. You can get subsonic rounds for both .40 and 9mm. I've heard that there are wet suppressors out there that can get the volume of the .45 down to a safe decibel rating so you don't need hearing protection, but I've not seen or heard one.
