I was reading somewhere, can't remember quite where, and it said that the 4 best personal defense rounds in .45 ACP were Speer Gold-Dot, Federal Hydra-Shock, Remington Golden Sabre and Winchester Silvertips. First off, do you agree with these four being the top personal defense ammo in .45 ACP? I read that all except for the Silvertips come in 185 grain and 230 grain. Why don't the Silvertips come in 230 grain? And do the Silvertips have real silver in them? Or is it just a name? So, I went to one of my local gun shops yesterday, and I didn't see the Silvertips or the Golden Sabres. Went to two other gun shops today. First one, I saw the Golden Sabres, but didn't buy them. Second one I bought some Silvertips and Speer Gold-Dot. Silvertips were by far the least expensive of the three that I looked at today. (I already had Hydra-Shocks that I've had for about a year now.) I also decided where to buy my Springfield Mil-Spec 1911. I'll pick it up soon, then (weather permitting) go try out these new bullets. Are there any other .45 ACP personal defense ammo that you like and would suggest I try out?
