.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.
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

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.

Had loaded 200 grain SWC's for close to 35 years for 45 ACP. All were hardcast with some sort of grease or wax lube by various suppliers. These coated bullets by Bayou are the best I've ever loaded! My dies stay clean as well as the barrel. No residue on my fingers. They are very accurate and punch clean holes in cardboard IDPA and USPSA targets. My 1911's like them loaded to an OAL of 1.240". As long as Bayou sell them, I will buy them!

I am using Bayou Bullets 200 gr SWC and 230 gr RN for everything from IDPA to full power loads. I shoot them in the following guns with no problems: S&W 1911, S&W PC 1911, Kimber Eclipse Pro II, K&K USP Tactical, and a custom 1911. I use them with the following powders: W 231, CFE Pistol, and Titegroup. They all work quite well with each gun having it's preferences. All are accurate. I have no leading problems. The price is good and the service is great. This was my first purchase from Bayou Bullets but not my last. PS I've been loading pistol ammunition for 50 years. Doc Wells on 17th Jan 2017
I bought some of the coated SWC bullets because I like 200 grain SWC bullets. The problem is smoke indoors and outdoors and leading. I have tried several brands of copper coated SWC but none would feed reliably. These coated SWC bullets feed well, do not smoke any more than copper coated bullets and do not lead the barrel. Now I can shoot SWC bullets again! Ted Schock on 9th Nov 2016
