.45 ACP 200 Gr. SWC - Sized to .452 (Typical). Other sizes available upon request call or email for options.
Very likely the most popular .45 ACP bullet ever made. Capable of fine accuracy. Popular in USPSA, IDPA and Bullseye competitions.
100 Count Sample Pack
Had not used coated bullets before, just jacketed, cast, and recently plated. I ordered some samples of 9 mm, 38 Super, 40 and 45 ACP. I have tested the 200 Gr..45 and 180 GR 40 very successfully. Nice to handle, clean shooting (50 rounds and the patch was nearly clean!) and accurate. I'm still working up a load for the 165 Gr 40. Have not had the chance to work up loads for the 9mm or the Super as yet. Based on the experience, I ordered a thousand each of the two bullets tested. I expect I will do the same again in future. At least as good is the bullets is the fulfillment of orders by Bayou Bullets, communication is superb, responsiveness & shipping great. Remarkably positive experience. Sandy on 2nd May 2017
Loaded up for use in G 41. Loaded to moderate velocity and function and feed were just as good as ball. No abnormal residue on barell. Will buy again. Not five stars because of the strange odor created from fireing. Good for competition and fun on steel. pistola988 on 24th Apr 2017
First batch of coated bullets from any maker. I ordered two 100 round sample packs for load testing/development. I like that the sample packs are offered to try for minimal investment before buying large quantities of a product that may not work in your firearm. Some measurements from a random sample of 50:
OAL- .007" total variance
DIA- .452" + .0003"/ -.0000"
Wt- 2 gr total variance
Best load shot 1.1" 5 rd, and 2" 20 rd at 25 yds with a custom 1911 w/ Kart barrel from a sandbag rest. This is the limit of my ability, and I believe these would shoot much tighter from a machine rest. Almost zero smoke shooting outdoors. Very easy to clean up afterwards. firstname.lastname@example.org on 10th Apr 2017
The 200gr SWC are the are some of the most accurate bullets that I have ever shot out of my 1911A1. Using 5.5 gr of Unique, Winchester large primers and mixed brass, I shot one 7 shot ragged hole in my target at 25 yards from a bench rest. No failures to feed at all.This was the first time that I have ever shot 200gr swc in my 1911A1 but it will now be my favorites. Ordering more on payday. Unknown on 30th Mar 2017
I had been shooting Xtreme bullets and a friend of mine told me to give these a try. The bayou bullets are just as accurate and for less cost. Thank you bayou! Danny on 21st Feb 2017
Tested these 200 grain bullets in my Kimber Stainless Target 45 for practice. Shot very consistent and accurate.. Wes Cummings on 2nd Jul 2016
I received a sample pack of 100 rounds of the 200gr Semi wadcutters in 45 caliber with the Hi-Tech coating. I used them in a steel-challenge competiton, fired through a Baer 1911. Some rapid shots and an average of 5 shots in 4 seconds (not counting draw time, so less than 1 second between shots and some in half that time). Flawless feeding, no problems.
Many of the bullets were incompletely coated, however, with bare metal exposed in some of the lub channels. All the bearing surfaces were fully coated so the coating was functional, just a bit disappointing. Gregory Norton on 5th May 2016
I've been reloading 200 gr SWC since 1973 for my 1911 race gun. This was the first time I tried the coated ones from Bayou. Tried a few hundred and I'm ordering more. Wayne on 3rd May 2016
I was in a pickle and needed a 200 gr SWC for a match and the BB folks took my order on Tuesday and I got my bullets on Thursday. I already had a load worked up for lead and continued with the same for the BB. They passed chrono and gave me at least the same accuracy that I had in my previous load. I can now take the time to see if there is a possible improvement in accuracy which may not be possible because of the trigger operator but they are a pleasure to load and clean to boot.

Just received my first order and am impressed.
Thanks for the fast shipping. R. Lovelace on 9th Feb 2016
