- Q & A
The .45 ACP is a combat pistol originally created for the U.S. Cavalry, and it has the stopping power and major knockdown strength you’d expect from a larger caliber round. It’s a favorite of Navy SEALs, MARSOC and Delta Force operators, and, of course, you own one, because you want a gun that means business. Considering its size, the cartridge has surprisingly moderate recoil and low muzzle flash; it operates at a maximum chamber pressure of 21,000 psi. One of the great things about the .45 ACP is its effectiveness with a wide range of ammunition; even FMJ rounds like these can stop a human in their tracks because the resulting wound channel is so catastrophic.
Of course, FMJ’s are best for target practice and tactical training due to their lack of expanding or slowing down on impact. If you want to put in focused training time with your .45 ACP, these rounds are both well made and competitively priced. Armscor has been manufacturing ammunition for more than sixty years. Their plant is located in the Philippines, they are ISO certified, and all their ammunition is made to SAAMI or CIP specifications. They have a reputation for quality and their products are distributed around the world.
At 230 grain these are heavy rounds, so they may more accurately mimic the recoil of a defense round, making them a nice training choice. They have a muzzle velocity of 830 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 352 foot-pounds; if you want a hard-hitting target round that moves down-range with nice speed, you’ve found it. You get 50 rounds when you place your order, and that’s just enough to get started with training time. If you really want to improve your skills with your .45 ACP, you should order more than one box. And keep in mind these are new production brass cases with boxer primer, so you can reload your spent brass. Don’t let your .45 ACP feel empty and neglected; order what you need to keep it loaded!
