    Need some 45acp lead loaded ammo for a special match next weekend. Anyone know where I can get some! I don't have my dies yet so can't make my own yet. :(

    I strongly advise that you not shoot anyone elses reloads in your gun. The risks are high and the rewards are low.

    Factory lead 45 acp ammo is available here in Houston at various stores. I know I have not bought any but noticed it was available.

    I'll take factory loads, just can't find any here in the East Texas Sticks!! I live about 30 miles from Tyler but the 2 gun stores there don't have crap!
    I was mainly looking for some I can order online and have them shipped to me!
    Who in Houston has some??

    Lead ammunition as in lead-core FMJ ammunition? Surely you can find that anywhere, such as wal-mart? Or do you need unjacketed lead ball ammunition (harder to come by)?

    I have seen factory lead out at academy and at Carter's in Houston. I just sort of casually noted it because I don't go there to buy anything but 22lr ammo. They had a special on it a while back, maybe 6 months ago.

    He's gotten some really good reviews on a couple of other boards I frequent, and his pricing is one of the better ones I've seen.
