Ruger P345 .45ACP best ammo?

I learned a lot by reading this post. 45 ACP ammo

Since it is more specific to Glocks, I started this thread.

I recently purchased 2 beautiful P345's new from the USMC PX. I really like these pistols.
I shot a bunch of Winchester 230grain FMJ ball so far with no problems. I have a box of Winchester 230gr Supreme Elite PDX1 to try out. I haven't yet. I like Hornady CD and carry some in .357 Revolver. I am going to try some for the .45ACP.

I haven't had any real issues with feeding or firing "yet". Since I am trying to figure out what it likes to eat I am asking anyone who has experience with a P345 what theirs likes best. I am keeping in mind that two pistols of the same make and model (may) have different preferences. I think I am leaning more towards SD ammo advice but all is welcome. Thanks GMan

Gunny ... While for range practice I generally use Federal Champion, my KP345 has happily digested a wide variety of other FMJ ammo along the way, inc: WWB, Remington UMC, S&B, Tulammo, CCI Blazer, Fiocchi & cheap range reloads to name just a few (it isn't picky). For self defense purposes (as it is my primary nightstand gun), it is always loaded with Winchester Ranger Talon 230gr JHP.

Hi Buck!
"it is always loaded with Winchester Ranger Talon 230gr JHP" I believe you told me this before.
I gotta find me some to try out. I have decided that Winchester makes some good off the shelf ammo.
Do you think there is much difference between the Winchester Ranger Talon 230gr JHP
and the Winchester Supreme Elite PDX1 230gr JHP or is it the same thing just different packaging?

Gunny ... While velocities are similar from what I understand, the primary difference is that the PDX1 has a special bonding between the jacket and the bullet and a different pattern of impact expansion.

Thanks again Buck, This has my interest. When I get some Ranger Talons I'll do some comparison tests. I am going to do more research also. Maybe I can even get some answers from Winchester. If I find out anything I'll let you know if you are interested.
