    Best Ammo for PT 145

    I will be picking up my PT 145 tomorrow. Any suggestions for good practice ammo and good hollow point ammo.

    Congrats! I've been using Walmart Federal 230gr FMJ, Walmart WWB 230gr JHP & Fiocchi Hornady XTP 230gr JHP.

    My 145 eats about anything in terms of range ammo. I use 185gr Hydra Shocks or Golden Sabre as carry ammo. From the research I've done, the lighter loads pick up a little more speed and a little better penetration out of the 3" barrel. But a 230gr will foul up most peoples' weekends.

    When I had mine I fed it 230gr fmj in wwb and fed champion flavors.

    For carry it got loaded with hornady critical defense in 230gr.

    Ate everything I fed it no problems

    Anything it will shoot! But mine gets WWB or Federal for range use and Powrball for carry.

    Did anyone mention that Brown Bear or Tula make wonderful range ammo? Huh? (Sorry, but some of the folks said their pistols would eat anything...)

    If you're a reloader, the PT145, loves reloads for practice. At least mine does. I really haven't found any ammo it doesn't like.

    Ditto, my PT145 is an ammo hog, eats anything!
