If you're using 45 Auto ammo for self-defense, the goal is to incapacitate your assailant as quickly as possible, which is why many gun owners choose to conceal carry large calibers. Although shot placement is important regardless of caliber, a larger caliber is going to create a bigger hole no matter what and given the effects of adrenaline on the human body it’s a good idea to have every possible factor in your favor. There are, of course, ways to train for the adrenaline dump, although it can’t be precisely replicated. Doing a series of jumping jacks, push-ups, and burpees immediately prior to shooting your gun raises your heartrate, accelerates breathing, and creating strain in the muscles, and if you do it enough it’s a good way to prepare for some of the physical effects of an attack. Even with training it’s nice to have a big gun, and that’s why you carry a .45 ACP.
These particular .45 ACP rounds are 185 grain, making them medium-weight for the cartridge size. At this weight these rounds are light enough to travel at fairly high speeds while still heavy enough to produce an impressive punch on impact. These are Jacketed Hollow Point (JHP) rounds and as such deliver rapid energy transfer and controlled expansion on impact, penetrating more deeply than standard HPs and creating a large, devastating wound cavity. Each of these rounds has a muzzle velocity of 830 foot-pounds. Aguila produces this ammunition specifically for self-defense use.
There are 50 defense rounds in this single box of ammunition. With 50 rounds you can keep your .45 ACP and spare mags loaded and ready in case of a self-defense scenario, but if you want to get realistic training in, you’ll need to order extra boxes. Because Aguila produces this ammunition in fresh brass cases with boxer primer, you can collect your spent brass, reload it, and get more range time in, making this an even better deal. Aguila manufactures ammunition at the TECNOS factory in Mexico according to SAAMI or CIP specifications. Place your order today to keep your .45 ACP ready for the worst-case scenario.
