PPQ 45 Ammo

American Eagle (AE) 230gr FMJ has been the only practice ammo I have used in 4 years. Bulk (500/1000) AE is more expensive and more difficult to locate than several other brands such as Sellier Bellot and the GECO. Just curious what ammo other PPQ 45 owners use and of course experience little or no issues with. The AE in both 9mm and 45 have been virtually trouble free in the CCP, PPS, PPQ 45 as well as 4 other non Walther models.

I prefer purchasing from SGAmmo but lately Bulk Ammo has had good, that's relative, pricing on AE and has been my source. SG just sent an email with SB priced at $269.80/1000 and that is much less than Bulk Ammo's best for AE at $338.

I too like the AE in 230 FMJ. It has the advantage of also being a cleaner shooting round and that is important when you are shooting 150 to 200 rounds during a session.

I also use the GECO which while not quite as clean as the AE is still cleaner then many and just as reliable as the AE...I use ammoseek to find the best deals on bulk ammo.

I use the S&B the most, it's well made, and cheap...always goes 'bang' when told to.

For practice rounds I have been using Speer Lawman and also Sasquatch, all 230gr. The Sasquatch was recommended by another forum member and is from Massammo, a forum sponsor. On the Sasquatch I have used both the new rounds and the remanufactured and all have been 100% OK. No problems with the Speer either.

I did just recently order some 9mm from SGAmmo and have been watching their newsletter too.

For ball, PMC is my favorate, in all my guns and ran dandy in my PPQ45.

For self defense, I certified my PPQ with my two favorites, HST (the expansion "king"), and Golden saber.

All above 100% reliable in PPQ.

I have used multiple brands without ever a hiccup in both my 9mm and 45 PPQs. I have come to use Blazer Brass, Speer Lawman, Fiocci, and S&B frequently with equal satisfaction from each.

For defensive I use Gold Dots and cycle them through periodically with no problems.

I have had the same experience with the exact ammo. Also PMC.
