About Our Prices ...

The number one bullet for use in the .45 ACP. Commonly referred to as the H&G68 it was developed by the great moldmakers Hensley and Gibbs and was their No.68 mold designation.

Cast to perfection in small careful batches with a weight deviation of only 7 tenths of one grain on the Match Grade versions, this bullet has been the standard that all other bullets are judged.

Superbly accurate with group sizes of under 1 inch at 25 yards this bullet holds accuracy out to 50 yards or more.

Developed to be a superb feeding bullet in .45 ACP the longer nose with its Ogival contact point duplicating Hardball is superior over the short stubby SWC styles that were available at that time which were prone to jamming on a regular basis. When set to an OAL (overall length of the loaded cartridge) of 1.25 inches and a taper crimp at .469 (measured right at the case mouth) this will prove to be optimal in 99% of the .45s out there for reliable feeding.

Most feed problems associated with SWC styled bullets can usually be traced to something other than the bullet style. On the rare occasion that that you cannot get this bullet to run I offer two other 200 grain bullets that will meet your needs. One is the 200 grain Round Nose Flat Point that feeds exactly like Hardball but its accuracy is less than the H&G68 in auto pistols and the other is our newest, the 200 grain Truncated Cone Plain Base that is very feed reliable and is turning in accuracy that is on par (with some saying its even better) than the famed H&G68.

This bullet is now made in a custom alloy blended in our own foundry for optimal .45 ACP performance. This alloy provides a precise blend of elements that optimizes the cast quality while maintaining a high degree of strength and ductility without the excessive hardness and brittleness often associated with the traditional alloys that are commonly used by other commercial casters. It also offers greater performance in feed reliability and reduced lead fouling in 1911 pistols than other softer lower grade alloys also being used by some commercial casters. This alloy provides better performance on steel targets with less splatter and chance of bounce back than harder, brittle alloys.

I can pack 2,300 of these in a single USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate carton and can offer shipping discounts for multi-pack orders.

Large quantity discounts available for clubs groups or individuals.
