This section is for .22 Long Rifle ammo, also known as .22 LR or 22LR. This is almost always what people are talking about when they just say 22 ammo.
Note, however, that .22 Long is different (and there's also .22 Short which is also different)!

This section is for 9mm ammo, also known as 9mm Luger, 9x19mm Parabellum. This is almost always what people are talking about when they refer to 9mm ammo.
Note, however, that there are many other 9mm cartridge types available.

I'm actually pretty happy with the accuracy of Speer Lawman 124gr ammo, but there is match-grade 9mm out there.

This section is for 45 ammo, also known as 45 Auto, 45 ACP. This is almost always what people are talking about when they refer to 45 ammo.
Note, however, that there are other 45 caliber cartridge types, like 45 Auto Rim, 45 Colt, etc.
The "ACP" in 45 ACP is an abbreviation for "Automatic Colt Pistol". The word "Automatic" in there means "auto-loading", which was as automatic as hand-held firearms got when this cartridge was invented in the early 1900's. Today, we would describe an "auto-loading" gun as being "semi-automatic", because although ejection of the spent casing and loading of the next round are automatic, firing the next round is not (one bullet comes out for each trigger pull) By contrast, "fully automatic" means that ejection, loading, and firing the next round are all automatic (as long as you keep holding the trigger back, bullets keep coming out, until it runs out of ammo (a.k.a. a machine gun)).

For Bullseye competition, most people use lightly-loaded semi-wad-cutter (SWC) or jacketed hollow-point (JHP) bullets with weights of 200 or 185 grains, for maximum accuracy. Most competition shooters reload their own ammo, so that they can "work up" a load that works well in their particular gun. However, there are places to buy either newly-manufactured or reloaded ammo that might be suitable for bullseye competition.
A wad-cutter is a shape of bullet, which cuts a nice, clean hole in a paper target (easy to score). A semi-wad-cutter is a compromise between a wad-cutter and a normal, round-nose bullet, designed to cut a clean hole in paper, but with more reliable feeding from magazine to chamber.
LSWC = lead semi-wad-cutter JHP = jacketed hollow-point JSWC = jacketed semi-wad-cutter
