Also, How hot is Hungarian MFS .45 ammo compared to WWB or Fiocchi?

This would be for a 1911 or a Sig P220.

I've only shot wwb and Fiocchi, not the hungarian ammo you speak of. I shoot wwb as range ammo, I have complete confidence in this round, my father and my friends shoot wwb also, I've also shot alot of Fiocchi and it's hotter than wwb and I've never had a problem and nothing stands out in my mind as to reading or hearing anything bad about it.

If cost is not an issue - Speer Lawman

If I have to pay for it - WWB or Federal American Eagle

I hear ya. I just wanted to know if FMJ was the only ammo to cycle reliably, which brand would be best to use. I just finished reading MacPherson's book again so I know what you mean. Great read. There is a second printing that recently came out:

+1 on a 230 gr. Flat Point

Hornady had a 230gr FMJ flat point in the past. If they still do, it would be a good choice.

Another good option would be a 200gr jacketed SWC.

If FMJ was the only ammo that cycled reliably, I'd super polish the feed ramp, change the followers in my magazines, or find magazines that would feed, polish the lead to the chamber, tighten up my slide, and install a full set of wolf springs throughout.If you take your time and focus on the actual problem, you can usually make it work. Otherwise use something that will go bang every time. I use S&B or Remington for practice ammo.

If only allowed to carry FMJ, I would use Feredal's EFMJ. Non-expanding bullets out of a pistol suck. BSW

doubletap ammo. I don't think you can go wrong with even WWB though. 45 is 45.

+2 Federal EFMJ.

Even cheap 9mm HPs would be better than .45 FMJ.

Using .45 FMJ is like having a Ferrari with an automatic transmission.

Dont know it I agree with that. Ball ammo out of a .45 has worked many a time in combat situations. Now the EFMJ is prob the way to go but I dont think that was the question. I think he wants ball ammo. In that case any Ball ammo that functions should do the trick.

I was thinking that he was looking for FMJ for feeding issues. I would think EFMJ would be the way to go. Well 9mm ball has worked many times in combat situations as well. Although not as good as .45 ball. Most cheap 9mm HP will expand to .50 or greater. A .45 ball round has a 60% stopping rate. Most 9mm is HP is 80% or greater. The good stuff about 92% compared to the best .45 HP at 96%
