.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.
Been loading nine for a couple years and lately had a .45 1911 'thrust' upon me. A deal I couldn't refuse. Did the research and to no surprise found that Bayou's 200gr SWC was very popular. Ordered a 100 for load development then ordered up another 500. For me, out of an SA Loaded Combat, 4.4 of TG @ 1.150 seemed to group the best at 10-15 yards. Loaded up a couple hundred and shot a local steel match. No issues once I figured out the sights, need an adj rear. I'll be ordering another 1k soon and I have some 150gr SWCs in 9mm to try next.

I recently ordered a 100 round test pack of the coated .452" 200gr LSWC Bayou Bullets and was VERY happy with everything about them. They were more consistent in diameter and weight, loaded easier, shot cleaner, and were more accurate than the uncoated LSWCs I had grown accustomed to from another very popular maker. There was also a very noticeable lack of smoke while shooting because of the coating on the bullets. If Bayou Bullets keeps up what they are currently doing, I'll be a lifetime customer! Just placed order #2 today. Chad on 28th Sep 2018
GREAT ACCURACY IN MY GLOCK 41, COLT AUTO AND SW 625. FOUR GRAINS OF CLAYS IN ALL THREE GUNS. GOTTA LOVE IT!!! james rose. "The Gun Whisperer" on 1st Aug 2018
Recently ordered and received 200 grain .452 SWC bullets. When they arrived, I checked them for consistency. All were dead on .452”, and weighed 200 grains. Loaded a few and shot them with no issues and very good accuracy. The coating holds up well and doesn’t come off like some others. These will be my “go to” bullet in .45 ACP.I’ll be buying these again. Gene Mullane on 24th Apr 2018
I've shoot several thousand Bayou bullets in the last couple months and will be buying many more. I love the 240 gr swc for 44 spl. and 44 mag. the 160 gr. rn for 38 spl. and 357 mag.
Today I took my new never fired CZ 97 BD and a 20 year old Colt gov. model to the range and shot 200 of Bayou's 45 cal. SWC in 45 acp. 18 of the first 20 rounds ever fired from the new CZ were on a 2" shoot-n-c target at 15 yards the Colt did a little better with 20 out of 20. Bayou's bullets are the best and service is even better. I live in Kansas and placed an order Friday AM Tuesday they showed up in my mail box that's what I call service.
Now for the down side the lady that delivers my mail hates Bayou bullets because a case of the 240 gr. bullets weigh about 70 lb. she refused to deliver my last case I had to pick them up at the post office. It's kind of funny I watched her pull up the mail box and leave a note saying sorry I missed you pick up your package tomorrow at the post office. Lew Medlin on 30th Mar 2018
I was new to reloading .45 acp. I had some issues because data was all over the place for OAL, case bulging, and charge. I started out rough 1.275 OAL, 5.3 grains of Unique, and not so straight seating. Emailed Dennis and he called my home and left a VM. I returned the call at 5PM PT thinking no way but he picked up at home. After a great discussion, I flattened out the end of my bullet seating shaft for a straighter presentation and moved down to 1.255 ( a finger nail according to Dennis), moved my charge up based on newer data to 5.7 grains of Unique, and I have excellent results. Out of a service model XD, these are very accurate rounds. At 4 fence posts (40 ft) all five were in the 2" sticker. 100 % failure free and very soft. I was so happy to be recommended to Bayou Bullets, I will buy nothing else now. firstname.lastname@example.org on 7th Feb 2018
Everything as promised with a quick delivery Philip Lakin on 3rd Feb 2018
I have used this bullet for some time now. I've gotten excellent results using it with both Titegroup and VV N310. This is an accurate well priced bullet. I'll be buying more. Doc Wells on 28th Jan 2018
So I will put another endorsement on here. These are just the best bullets I have used in 40 years of 1911 shooting. Load the Bayou 200 Grain SWC with VVN320 or VVN340(my preference) to about 1.270 OAL and enjoy. They shoot better than Nosler 185 grain Match. They are also much harder than many lead bullets on the market. I highly recommend the Bayou Bullet. I wish I lived closer so I could go pick up a truck load but I must say the shipping is immediate. They are always received within 3 days of ordering. My last order was here before the USPS said it would arrive! Eric Kennard on 18th Jun 2017
I had bought a few sample 100 paks and was pleased. My Son shoot my reloads and loved them. So I'm back to load for both of us.
