Default 45 ACP Ammo for 325 TR

I have had my 325 TR for awhile and normally shoot Winchester White Box 230 grain ammo at the range. I have been using this because it is cheap and available. However I get a little too much recoil from this ammo.

Anyone use another factory load that they would recommend? I am no a re-loader so I am looking at just factory loads.

Thanks!

Since most 45ACP ammunition is used in auto loaders, the power range of Factory ammunition is very limited.

After all, the manufacturers do not want to turn out ammunition that will not cycle the firearms.

While more expensive, you could look at some of the small boutique ammunition companies that produce 45AR ammunition. This will work in your revolver without the need for moon clips. Also because it is intended for revolvers ONLY, the power range of available ammunition is MUCH greater

You might also try and locate some small ammunition loaders in the Rochester area that supply the ranges and gun shows. They are often willing to do a semi-custom loading at your request if you order 1000 or so rounds of ammunition

Then you could also go the route of buying a shooting glove with a gel insert and just keep using the Winchester

Is it because of the scandium frame possibly or is it stainless? I shoot +P out of my 625's and find them all to be pooches in the recoil department. I think my 45 shield actually kicks harder but only because of size and weight I believe.

Yes, the scandium makes it pretty light.

Try a 325 PD, Scandium plus Ti cylinder.

Its not a gun Id want to shoot all day, but its not intolerable.

Wish theyd make a 625 w Ti cylinder.
