All three are good, modern choices. Federal's new HST is also supposed to be a good performer and is said to be a considerable step forward from the HydraShok bullet design which had got to be at least a 15 year old design. I know it's cliche, but the most important issue is which one runs in YOUR gun. And then, my next question is ,"Can I easily get more?"dougxd said:For .45ACP used in a SA MC Operator 5" 1911, whadaya's think about the three rounds? Is one of them far above and beyond the others or are they generically very similar in historical performance?
Agreed about the GS. Bonded is the only way to go there. Depending on your weapon, sometimes the GS might have feed problems. I won't say my Springfield doesn't like the GS but I've have better success with the other two. I usually carry Gold Dot 200+p and alternate those with the Rangers.Black_Talon said:I'd go with the Ranger T or Gold Dots as my first choice, with the GS as a slightly distant second choice, unless you can find them in the bonded version.
Not only are they cheaper per box of 50, I find them to be extremely accurate in 3", 4" and 5" 1911's.SockPuppet said:They are all good. I like the Rangers since they are cheaper.
