- Q & A
During the Philippine-American War, the U.S. Cavalry discovered their firearms were shockingly ineffective against the adrenaline-fueled attacks of the Moro warriors. Although the Moros were armed with simple wooden weapons, they proved formidable foes, and when all was said and done the cavalry had decided they needed better firepower for future engagements. As a result they began a series of tests including the infamous Thompson-LaGarde Tests, which involved shooting cadavers and live cattle. The results of all the tests made it clear: only .45 ACP had the power they needed.
These .45 ACP rounds are 230 grain, making them heavy for the cartridge size. At this weight these rounds impact targets with substantial force. These are Full Metal Jacket, or FMJ, rounds, and as such do not expand on impact. In fact, target rounds such as these have a tendency to over-penetrate targets, so make sure you have a reliable backstop in place during target practice. Each of these rounds has a muzzle velocity of 845 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 365 foot-pounds. This ammunition is great for target practice, self-defense training, and plinking.
When you place your order for this box of ammunition from Blazer, you get 200 target rounds. With that many rounds you can dedicate serious time to honing your marksmanship skills, practicing firing from various positions and working on shooting with your weak hand. These are brand new production, non-corrosive, brass-cased rounds with boxer primer, so you can collect your spent casings, reload them, and get right back to the range. Blazer is a subsidiary of CCI and manufactures ammunition at their established factory in Lewiston, Idaho. Your .45 ACP is a big gun with an even bigger appetite; feed it. Order now.
