300 grain 45 acp

Hello Everyone,

I like heavy and slow bullets for self defense. Trying to decide if I am going to go from the 45 acp to the 50 gi caliber with a Speer 325 grain 50 gi as tested by Taffin http://www.handloads.com/loaddata/ta...Powder&Source=

Does anyone know of a source for a 300 grain, rebated, boattail base bullets that will fit in 45 acp brass? Preferably a JHP or a copper HP.

A major argument against such a heavy 45 acp round was that it would bulge the casing. However, in the April 2006 issue of Handloader Magazine, in the article, "Super Heavy Bullets in the .45 Auto" by Bob Campbell, that issue was easily resolved. He resolved it by using a 300 gr. rebated, boattail base bullet. This bullet was made by Northwest Custom Projectiles. However, that company appears to be out of business.

Thanks for any assistance.

Bullet Bob's website ain't working, but I believe he's still in business. Look up his number and call him, or email him: [email protected]

Thanks for email address. I just emailed him. Found 4 phone numbers, none work. Just found out that Buchanan Ammunition had made 45 acp rounds with the 300 gr bullet from Sauter. Will try to contact them next. Thanks again.

FYI, [email protected] does not work. I found out that Sauter still lives in Butte, Mt., but no contact info yet. However, thanks for your efforts.

Today,spoke with John Buchanan of Buchanan Ammunition. Nice guy. They no longer produce ammunition, but not for negative reasons. He said their 300gr. 45 acp round for auto loaders worked well. He is going to work with me to get the ammo. I will update as I find out more info.
