You need to define "hottest" for your question.
Bob is right that Corbon's are the hottest if muzzle velocity is what you're looking for.
Troy is right as far as performance. Speer Gold Dot's are rated highly for penetration and expansion.
There are others that are very good; ie. Hydra-shok's and the like. Take a look at the Blazer .45 HP's. Those things look like cereal bowls!!! Anyway, maybe I expounded beyond your question but there are many good performers out there. Read up on your ballistists and tests firings in most gun mags. and I think you can come to your own conclusion.

As for FMJ, Blaser (yes the aluminum stuff) is quite hot.

I'll check out the Blazer and Corbon FMJ.

I am only looking for FMJ as that is all my gun will shoot.

Let me ask you.... You say your gun will only shoot FMJ's? What gun are you shooting? I've never heard of a gun that won't shoot the new HP's on the market today. I've never owned a semi-auto that would not feed most HP's. Not trying to give you a hard time .... just curious.

Stock Colt 1911 from World War I with stock WW 1 7 round mags.

Well the Navy didn't give a crap about it until it was saved from the scrap heap by someone. But it's still a good and reliable pistol bar none.

Another question:

Is American Ammuntion FMJ 45 any good or is that a brand with a lot of KBs? Picked up a 50 round pack real cheap awhile back.

Dear god allmighty please smite the makers of American Ammo from the face of the earth to help your humble servants who own and opperate Dillon presses.
Seriously American ammo or "Amerc" as the headstamp says is shit, it is the bane of the reloading world. The brass is the only one of all the brass/ammo manufactured worldwide that will not run thru a press without fuckin it up(the press, not the brass). If you insist on using this crap at least pick up and throw away, not in the brass bin at the range but actually throw it in the TRASH.
Go to 1911.com and do a word search on amerc and watch the fur fly.
