.45 ACP 185 Gr. SWC - Sized to .452 (Typical). Other sizes available upon request call or email for options.
This is the lightest .45 ACP bullet we offer.
Accurate and cleaner shooting and less cleanup than with non coated. Unknown on 16th Feb 2017
I already ordered and shot Your 9mm and they shot so well I figured I would try Your 45 ACP's and was not disappointed. Pancho on 18th Jan 2017
This is my second order for these bullets that I use in Bullseye matches with excellent results. The barrel, chamber and throat area leading are dramatically reduced and lead residue on my hands during reloading is no longer a problem. njcody on 24th Dec 2016
As with all Bayou bullets I've ordered (5500 so far), the weight, diameter, and length are right on: Wt.- mean=184.97 & SD=0.32772, diameter - mean=.45115 & SD=0.00058, length - mean=0.31185 SD=0.00053. Out of the 150 I've loaded so far there is no exposed lead. Unknown on 11th Jul 2016
I ordered these as a basic target round. They arrived quickly and well packaged. The coating was uniform and even. I loaded them with 5.7gr of universal as it was all I had. With the bullets seated at 1.25 coal they fed perfectly in my sig and colt. I was pleasantly surprised at how accurate they were. I easily held a 5" group at 50yds offhand on a moderately windy day. Not very scientific, but the results were similar to some match grade ammo I've shot. I need to order some more already. Justin on 1st Mar 2016
I originally ordered 100 each of the 185 gr LSWC, 200gr LSWC and 225 gr TC bullets. After working up test loads I ordered 500 each of the 185 gr and 200 gr. I just placed my third order for 1000 of the 185 and am really pleased with my recipe. Running mixed range brass and CCI or WLP primers and 5.0 gr of red dot, I consistently shoot 1.5" 15m groups in my HK USP tactical (polygonal barrel) and zero leading. I bench rested a 12 shot group at 25m and ended up with a 1.3" ragged hole. wish I could upload a pic!!! I've never had this consistency with bulk jacked and is on par with premium JHP loads Keep up the good work Donnie!!!! Warren I, Antigo WI on 26th Jan 2016
Finally a bullet with all the accuracy characteristics of lead, the feeding reliability of jacketed and no smoke or lead contamination while handling or shooting. These 185 gr Bayou Bullets consistently give me under 1.5" groups at 25 yards when I do my part in my 1911. 5.3 grs of W-231 and Federal primers round out the winning combination with this bullet. Couldn't be happier! John Knight, San Dimas,Ca. on 20th May 2015
Loading these for a HK USP 45. after 250 rounds, very little leading, only visible under a bright LED, looked like pencil marks and cleaned out easily. When loaded short OAL over red dot powder I'm shooting 1.8" 10 shot groups at 60'. Simply amazing. I started with the 100 round sample pack and quickly ordered 500 more. The best Lead bullet on the market today. Warren I on 18th Feb 2015
I normally shoot the green 230 grain heads for USPSA. I got the gold 185 heads to make a Steel Challenge load. Firstly, the color is pleasing, but it is far more of a copper hue than a of gold color. Quality was good. However I did have one head where the gold coating was inconsistent.
With all that being said, I wouldn't hesitate to buy the gold 185 heads again. Bayou is always dependable. T.W. on 13th Nov 2014
Received the 185 gr SWC coated bullets for my 45acp and put together some test loads. With the correct powder charge all chambered and shot well. No leading has been noticed but have only shot 75 or so. Appears I will order some more soon. Unknown on 5th Aug 2014
