My department goes through over 10k rds of Speer Lawman just for bi-annual qualifications. We are issued the same for training on our own time. We use Speer Gold Dot on duty, so maybe that is why they go with the Lawman. I have no complaints, but then again I am not paying for it either.
I really like Speer Lawman ball .45 ammo. It has always had consistency for me, good accuracy, low muzzle flash and smoke. It's usually a little more expensive than S&B (which is good, but not as good) but when it's on sale, it's quite competitive. So, in this last sale, I bought a bunch!
Thanks Double Naught Spy. Regarding Speer ammo, Blazer and Lawman, I like it. Speer products are accurate, clean burning and always go bang in my guns. The only thing is, you can buy S&B or Fiocchi, which is also good, for less money. Sam
Speer Lawman (all bullet types, I believe) are on Wilson Combat's "not recommended" ammo list. The Wilson rep on their new forum says it's because the rounds are not crimped and can push back into the case when feeding causing a malfunction. In fact, this very thing happened to me last week with a Speer Lawman 230 grain FMJ.
Got a spreadsheet I keep up with all this stuff on. E-mail me if you would like a copy. NOTE: It only contains calibers and ammo types that I shoot - that means no frangibles/exotics, no lead bullets, no reloads/remanufactured, etc.
My opinion on the Lawman ammo is it always seems to be a hotter load than some of the other 45 fmj I shoot. I don't have any chrono data to support this - just the difference in feel from lots of range time.
