What type of bullet do you load, and where do you get it from?

What is a good price to pay for the bullets?

And, most important, how do they shoot?

Bullet: 200gr. SWC (Moly Coated Semi-WadCutter), I order them from BearCreek supply. I've never had a problem shooting them (2000+ shot), and they feed great in all my .45's Moly coated bullets don't need lube like plain cast bullets so they are much cleaner to shoot and handle. Hope this helps.

Not reloading specificly for a .45 24/7 Pro, but I have shot my IPSC Match reloads in one with no problems and excellent accuracy. Will probably get a .45 24/7 Pro, down the road.

All of my "other" .45's generally get my IPSC Match Reload of a 200 grn Berry's Plated Flat Point under a charge of WST, lit off by a Winchester Primer. Average Chronographed velocity is 850 fps from an EAA Witness 4.5 inch barrel, 865 fps from a 5 inch barreled 1911, and 840 fps from a 4.2 inch barreled Taurus PT945.

Berry's also makes a 200 grn Round Nosed Bullet for those phobic about the feeding of Flat Pointed Bullets. Also note that Berry's Bullets are sized .001 over the typical Jacketed Bullet sizing and Cast Bullet Data should be utilized in developing a Load.

Bought my current supply of 3000 awhile back and prices have risen dramaticly, so you can't touch them for what I paid for them. Check the Berry's Website for current prices.

I use Laser cast FP 200gr. 5gr. of Bullseye and CCI primers in a 45 mill pro. Gun cycles very well and reliable grouping at 15-25 yards.
