I'm looking for a .45 JHP bullet to test feeding and function (accuracy is secondary). The Sierra 185 JHP has a reputation for being more difficult to feed than other bullets but what other "bulk" bullets fall into this category that could be used to test pistol feeding and reliability? Maybe something from Zero or Montana Gold?

You can compare the Sierra profile to others here. Hornady 185 is close.

I had heck with Rainier 185hp plateds, gave up on them.

I always figured if I could feed Hornady XTP and Winchester PDX profiles, I was golden.

The old Speer bucket mouth bullets we used to shoot bowling pins with. I don't think they are made anymore though.

Yes, those are the types of bullets that I'm talking about. I was asking if the Montana Gold or Zero JHP's have similar shapes since they are cheaper and available in bulk.

Those were the real flying ashtrays, nowadays people call all hollow points that.
