|Manufacturer||Sellier & Bellot|

Sellier & Bellot has been making ammunition in the Czech Republic since 1825. Today it's used by civilian, law enforcement, and armed forces all around the world. A few years ago, S&B was bought by the Brazilian parent company CBC, who also owns Magtech, another maker of quality ammo.
The 230 grain .45 ACP ammo that we tested utilizes a reloadable brass case with a non-corrosive primer and a traditional lead bullet with a copper full metal jacket. The individual cartridges come tightly packaged in a 50 round box with two plastic carriers of 25 rounds each. With a muzzle velocity of around 850 feet per second, it has moderate recoil for the .45, not quite what you'd get from high pressure defensive loads, but not the softest recoiling either, putting it at a comfortable meeting for use as training ammo.
Accuracy from the bench at 15 yards was surprisingly exceptional, with 9 of our 10 shots grouped in just over an inch. Other calibers of S&B that we've tested have had respectable accuracy, but this batch of .45s seemed to top all of them. Function and reliability was good, as well. The S&B ammo fed through all six of our test guns with no problems. If you prefer brass case ammo for practice and want top notch reliability and accuracy, then Sellier & Bellot in .45 ACP looks like a good choice.

S&B 45 ball ammo
I shoot 100 rounds of S&B 45 ACP ball weekly at a local indoor range. The ammo runs perfectly in my Dan Wesson PM 45. In my opinion S&B 45 ACP ball ammo is cost effective, accurate and reliable. Lucky gunners service and shipping were excellent. I will be purchasing with them again.
Just finished 1000 rounds of this ammo
I just completed my first 1000 rounds of this ammo. Was very pleased with results. No misfires. No mis-feeds. Accuracy was good. Feel is sharp and crisp. Was a little dirtier to shoot than PMC, but much cleaner than Winchester.
Good for short barrels
Shot out of short barrel ran flawlessly. Put 400 round down range as accurate as most other training ammo I have shot out of the same gun. No failure to feeds. This is a brand I use for other calibers as well and have seen similar results with their 9mm and .40 ammo.
Really good stuff, bad side is; It goes fast!
I got a 1000 rounds of this to put through my 1911, and it loved it. I burned though 800 rounds in 2 weeks without a single malfunction, so I ordered more.
It isn't the cleanest, but its reliable, and hits well.. So I got a bunch more to get me through California's new ammo laws.. and as soon as California fixes these silly new laws I will buy more.
Ordered this ammo as a comparison to some other brand. So far I have put 200 rounds of each down range through a Springfield Armory 1911A1 Mil-Spec. This ammo is performing better than I was expecting. Will definitely order this brand again. I am really glad I found Lucky Gunner. Prices are reasonable and shipping is fast.
I have used this ammunition extensively and I have found it to be excellent in reliability, in price and in its quality. I would use this brand in any caliber in addition to the .45 ACP that I have been using.
Outstanding accuracy at this price point
I am able to get 2" groups at 25 yards in a 1911 5-inch barrel, resting on a sandbag. I tried six different brands of ammo for my new pistol and this was the best performer. At this price point, I'm going to order the thousand round deal.
S&B 45 ACP - Two Thumbs Up!
Great ammo: high quality; reliable; shoots clean; no malfunctions out of several 1000 rounds cases. I use S&B for my other pistols (9mm & 10mm) and have had the same experience and results with those pistols respectively. I'm very happy that I found Lucky Gunner and can order this ammunition. The local gun store looked at me like I was a space alien when I inquired about buying 45 ACP in bulk. I needed 3000 rounds for a week long pistol course. The only option for me at that store was to buy each 50 round box by itself. Forget it. Thanks, Lucky Gunner!
This is as much as you could hope for, specifically as a range ammo. I like to stockpile it as I would trust it if things went really sideways. Obviously not a great carry ammo, but if worse comes to worse in the world I trust it to land where I put it. All that, and it burns clean. Reasonable enough, price wise, that I can get to the range a little more often. Everyone that shops at LG says it, but these guys are ridiculous when it comes to shipping speed, reliability and customer service. I would feel like a bad person if I went anywhere else. Shoot on.
Most accurate ammo you can buy.
I've tried Federal Aluminum case, Federal American Eagle, Winchester white box, Sig Sauer, Remington and Sellier and Bellot. Sellier and Bellot and Remington in 40 S&W and 45 ACP are neck in neck the most ACCURATE factory ammo you can buy !! I've ran a lot of test and these two always rise way above the others. And besides the aluminum case rounds these two are the lowest cost !!
Best range ammo out there
I've tried much every major brand of ammo there is and hands down S&B is the best. Clean, accurate and depending on which you buy generally hotter than most others. Factor in price, which is usually near the lowest cost per round, and you have a clear winner. New Brass for near steel cased or reload prices makes this my preferred brand that I buy in quantity. I've shot at least 10K rounds combined between 9 and 45 never once a failure
Very accurate for range ammo, comes very close to match ammo. Much more accurate then Winchester or Federal target ammunition. Very reliable as I've gone though 5000 rounds without issue and used it for Pistol league bullseye type competition, or to say I've had any issues with Winchester or federal. But compared to Remington UMC that seems to not be very consistently loaded it's a superstar. The other shooters are always amazed at how accurate it i for the price, but I can't find it local and always have to order online.
Excellent ammo; excellent value. And of course, Lucky Gunner is the best.
I've just ordered the second 1,000 round batch of this ammo, and have had zero problems with it. Runs perfectly, shoots straight, and isn't particularly dirty (I'm anal, and clean my weapon every time I fire it; old habits die hard). And Lucky Gunner's service is absolutely the best. Had a login problem at 10:00 at night, and emailed customer service -- got a response from an actual human within about 5 minutes and the problem was resolved more or less instantly. I love the idea that whatever you order is actually in stock and ready to ship. Contrast that with some sites where you see some great price and then come to understand that -- oops -- it's temporarily out of stock. You really can't do much better than Lucky Gunner.
This ammo is a fantastic value for the money. I've bought and shot most everything on the market and this is some of, if not the cleanest burning and accurate ammunition you can get without paying premium prices for top rate defensive or target ammo. I've run over 12,000 rounds of this ammo through 2 different. 45 caliber pistols (a Colt & a Kimber) and had only 1 failure to fire. I'm going on 20,000 rounds of the 9mm with only 3 ftf's, but they all happened in a low cost firearm a friend asked me to try out (SCCY) Absolutely no problems in my Browning Hi-power or Kahr K9. I'd definitely recommend this brand of ammo to anyone.
We have bought two cases of this product now, one case end of last year and another recently and we honestly have to say that we've never had any FTF or FTE's on the cartridges we've run through multiple types of guns - Springfield XD, XDM, FNP45, Ruger P90. These are all factory original guns with no upgrades or changes in case you are wondering.
The ammo shoots clean and for target practice shoots darn accurate also. Very happy with product - just wish it was a bit cheaper to help out the pocket book. : )
Sellier & Bellot .45 ACP
I shot 50 rounds through my Ruger SR1911 with no problems at all. I Got this product on sale. These rounds are very high quality as well. I was able to sustain and 1 inch group at 10 yards. The brass is also very sturdy and is reloadable. I highly recommend this ammunition to the high volume shooter
Ordered Monday morning. It was in my hands by Tuesday afternoon. I didn't pay for expedited shipping either.
As far as the ammo goes. It does bang every time and feeds and ejects without issue or consequence. Would purchase again...........on sale...
So far so good
I purchased the 1000 round lot and had it in my hands in a matter of a few days. A week later we threw a full box of 50 rounds down range with a Glock 30 gen 4 and had 0 Failure to feed or failure to fire. I might be crazy but I felt this fired cleaner than the other 50 rounds of the PMC bronze loads in 230 grain packing also.
All in all I would buy again for range shooting. For a .45 it wouldn't be ruled out for concealed carry either. It's a nice slow, heavy load.
This is my second order of S&B 45ACP. No problems with this ammo in my Ed Brown 1911 - shot 100%. Likely to stay with it. Have experienced some bad rounds (damaged casings) in comparably priced alternatives (i.e., bulk offerings from 2 major ammo manufacturers).
Works great so far...
Actually only put 50 rounds of this product through a Springfield XDM Tactical - but the 50 rounds ran through it fine with no problems and seemed to be relatively clean ammo for a relatively inexpensive product compared to some!!
Excellent Product, Good Value !!
Very pleased with this ammo and the great service from Lucky Gunner. Already put 300 rounds through my new Kriss Vector carbine without a hitch. Nice grouping, clean ammo, will buy more.
Great clean ammo; excellent for range
Loved the Sellier & Bellot. First time buyer. Bought them because of great price and somewhat concerned about quality ... but ended up very happy with it. After 2,000 rounds, I think I only had just a couple malfunctions and that was only with my new Ruger Commander; both my 1911 Wilson Combat & Nighthawk Custom loved this ammo. Lucky Gunner - great job on customer service and delivery! I will be buying again, thanks!
sellier&bellot 45 acp
Thank you guys for your customer service and dedicated business. I have ordered thousands of rounds from you but these 45acps are excellent. Got my order on time every time. You guys are great & honest to deal with. I tell all my friend s & family about lucky gunner.
great ammo at great prices, best service in the busneiss
Just the best service of any company that I deal with. always great price's,service, and most of all the best shipping. always shipped when they say & no run around.
thanks for your committment
I used this a case of this at a Hackathorn class the other weekend. Accuracy was great and cost was surprisingly low for .45 factory ammo. I ended up shooting around 800 rounds with no malfunctions and was very surprised by how clean the ammo was.
Interesting side note, we did a test of ammo for the night portion. This ammo performed better than most premium hollowpoints in regards to flash retardation.
And kudos to luckygunner. I got my shipment the next day.
Consistent, top quality performance.
I am fortunate to shoot approximately 10k rounds a year, mainly 45, 9mm and some 380. S&B have always been a favorite, and the consistent performance make these cartridges a permanent fixture in my range bag. Coupled with LG's great service, I don't think that you can go wrong.
Great value, solid round and good service
Ran about 400 rounds through my Springfield .45 acp Tactical without one malfunction of any kind. This order though unlike all others was pretty slow to arrive and was very poorly packaged. Don't know if that was a Lucky Gunner issue or the ammo supplier. Lucky Gunner has always been awesome and I will always continue to purchase my ammo there and would recommend others do the same.
Excellent value; great service.
I've run 500 rounds through my SA M1911 without a hitch. High quality, good accuracy, very little smoke, and the residue is very manageable. Best value out there, best I can tell, and Lucky Gunner service is superb - on time, accurate order, friendly people who actually believe in customer service. What's not to like. Highly recommend the ammo and Lucky Gunner.
Just to be honest with you I haven't used any of the new ammunition yet, I purchased it to replace the munition that I have been going through. I expect to start using it within the next few weeks. And as usual the price and speedy delivery were great. Lucky gunner has continued to earn my business.
S&B and PMC - R the two brands of ammo I will buy
Very good shooting ammo shinny and clean bought 1,000 rounds at a good price. Only complaint packaging should have been solid, received loose ammo from two boxes which opened during shipping. Highly recommend S&B and LG
Good, but not ideal for my pistol.
Fired 150 rounds of this through my XDS 3.3 at the range today. Keep in mind i bought the PRP spring kit for this pistol so i knew there would be a possibility of light primer strikes on certain ammunition. Using Winchester white box and my hollow point concealed carry ammo i had zero issues. It does seem however, that the Sellier and Bellot primers require a harder strike than the others. i had 2 light primer strikes in 150 rounds. Is it the end of the world while i'm casually shooting at the range? No. I am satisfied with the purchase due to the price, but will probably not purchase it again because the spring upgrade has made my XDS a bit more finnicky with the ammo I run through her.
Good For The Money and Quality Ammo
As usual Lucky Gunner supplies quality products. Ammo is pretty clean and performs well in my Glock 21 and Colt Defender. Very fast delivery from LG and packed very well. You won't be sorry with this ammo. I use it for IDPA.
All I shoot now
I've put almost 5,000 rounds of this ammo through my 1911. I have never had any issues in anyway caused by the ammo. This stuff is so accurate I get multiple hits on steel past 100 yrds as a "party trick" and cleaning is a breeze even after all day shooting matches. I just bought 2,000 more rounds and will continue to buy this stuff until they stop selling it or ban me. If only the price would stop going up....
Sellier & Bellot Ammo .45 ACP 1000 rounds
Hangun is FN Herstal FNX-45. All stock
I cannot be happier. Great price and ammo feeds through the gun like it was born there. Not had any jams, misfires or feed issues so far. To be truthful, I've only sent about 300 rounds of these babies through it but what has gone through was perfect.
Clean shooting! Consistant rounds! Fantastic Price
Sent 200 through my 1911. Way too much fun! A good thing. Easy to identify when collecting brass. Rule of thumb - Federal - dirty, CCI - semi-dirty & aluminum, Winchester - semi-dirty and heavy, the shiny ones are S&B or PMC. I like S&B the best.... very little bench time clean the gun.
Great ammo and a great price
I purchased Sellier & Bellot for two reasons, the price and because I purchased some previously for my Glock 32 and the Glock chewed it up so I figured what's good for my Glock is good for my XDm. Lucky Gunner lived up to my expectations and I will be purchasing more from them in the near future.
All I run through my toys...
I only run sellier & bellot ammo. it's really clean, and more accurate then I am. Even through my pistol with a suppressor, cleanup is fairly simple. and Luckygunner.com has the best prices around on it.
Excellent ammo at a fair price.
I've put about 500 rounds through my M1911 with this ammo, and just ordered more. I had one or two FTEs, but always on the last mag of the day when the weapon (which is nearly 30 years old) was hot, so I'm not convinced the ammo was the problem. Excellent value; very accurate; high quality for the price. Service from Lucky Gunner was, as always, excellent.
Really great ammo.
Ordered a 1,000 rounds of the S&B 45 ACP. I have found their brass lasts extra reloads, will be buying again! luckygunner.com is my favorite ammo seller due to the product selection and prices on bulk.
Good price - Target shooting ok not match shooting
I ordered 1000 rds. Sellier & Bellot 45acp FMJ for a steel plate match at my gun club.
Good ammo for the price, but out of 850 rds fired.
6 FTF & 4 MF I would pay more for USA ammo
next time for match shooting.. Luckly gunner as always best prices and fast delivery...
Thank Ron Mac
Excellent Bang for the Buck $$$$
I have put nearly 500 rounds thru my Sig p220 and HK USP 45 Compact - no failures to feed and no missfires. Accuracy is very good.
Liked it so much bought another 1,000 rounds.
You do need to be careful with some other calibers of Sellier & Bellot as they are or can be magnetic - which will limit their shootability at an indoor range. (.38 specials are one such that I have found). .45 are not magnetic and are an excellent buy.
Why pay more for other brands?
I see nothing wrong with this ammo.....100 rounds in and no failures.........Wish I had bought another 1000 rounds before the prices went up. Too bad I didn't get a Sellier and Bellot T-Shirt or Hat with my order.....
Glad to have 4000 rounds
I am new to shooting. I am glad to find a source that is dependable/honest/up front to buy ammo from. Lucky Gunner is all the above and more. I have stock piled multiple calibers and LG has been there with excellent prices and immediate delivery.
