Ammo Recommendations/Para Warthog Questions

I just bought a 2007 Warthog. Are there any Warthog owners that can recommend reliable target and carry ammo? I have been asking around, and I am told that .45 ACP 230 grain feeds better (but doesn't expand properly w/ the 3" barrel). Some say that I should experiment with lighter loads for bullet expansion, but then there are feed issues that may arise. I am wondering where a good place to start is.

When I sell an officer sized 1911 I tend to reccomend they go with 165gn for shootability, and typically sell them on hydrashock, but that is mainly due to it being the stuff we've got on the shelf that I trust the most. Haven't had anyone come back in the door trying to throw a half-empty box back at me saying "this garbage won't feed!"

IMO, the 230's are gonna be a little bit of a handful in so small of a package. Personally, I'd hunt down some 185gn, such as good ole' Winchester white box, and this can usually be found at Wally World fairly cheap.

It's a 45 how much expansion do you need ? If a 1/2" hole wont do it, it aint getting done. just pick the round that feeds and you can shoot well.

Ammo question for Warthog.

I'm not a professional at this so whatever I say you are free to take with a grain of salt. I recently found an older Para P10.45 and bought it. As far as my understanding is it is the same basic platform as the Warthog. A nice afternoon at the range showed me that the little gun fed and fired everything I put through it, from 230 grain Blazers to 185 gr HPs. I also put 2 boxes (50 rounds) of the ammo I plan to carry through it: It is Remington HD Ultimate Home Defense 230gr BJHP. The recoil was moderate and they went through the gun perfectly with no failures of problems. I will eventually try WW Rangers and several others to see how they run but after uesterday I don't foresee problems.

Warthog .45

I Shoot Magtech 230 gr. and other loads in my Warthog with no problems.
I have 4 Para .45's and love them all. I have the best price in town on Magtech in several calibers.
