One of the most versatile bullets for the .45 Cal ACP is the 225 Grain Lead Truncated Cone.  Shooters who are just getting started in competitive shooting often start out by going to a Bullseye match.  There they find out that most Bullseye shooters use wadcutter ammunition so that they can see the point of impact on the target and compensate mid string during the slow fire phase and adjust their sights as necessary.  New shooters with standard service grade pistols often cannot shoot wadcutter ammo due to feeding problems.  The problem is further compounded by the fact that wadcutter match ammo usually has reduced velocity and recoil causing problems with extracting spent cases.   An alternative to using round nose ammo is the truncated cone bullet.  Load data and bullet weight is similar to the lead round nose and the bullet style tends to feed the same as round nose ammo.  While the impact point on the target is not as clean as the wadcutter, it is substantially better than the round nose bullet.  This bullet is also very effective for those shooters competing in Bowling Pin Matches.

This bullet is normally loaded for light to medium recoil.  It is made with new alloy, mixed to Lyman specifications with 4 percent tin, 4 percent antimony and 92 percent lead.  This bullet is lubricated with Magma Bullet Lube (Red).
