Reeds ammo is the best, they were the ONLY place I could find TC 7mm, Since then I bought 300 WSM as well. They will work with you on price and reload your returned brass, quick to respond to questions and prices are more than fair. Heck I even bought some personal defense 9mm rounds from Reeds based on the HP bullet, the powder load and the price. A truly quality shop.Roadkill Bill said:Your S&W will do fine. I have a 25-10 and with the right ammo, you're in deer hunting business.
He has hunting ammo that is safe in any .45 Colt.
.45 Colt with 185-gr Golden Sabers @ 1150FPS which are fine for deer.
He also has a 250-gr with a Hornady XTP, and for regular shooting a 255-gr. SWC that is the classic .45 Colt load, not the wimpy Cowboy stuff.
These are all regular loads, not the +P Ruger/Contender/Freedom Arms only loads that are not recommended for S&W.
Enjoy that 25-5!
