- Q & A
.45 ACP has been around since the U.S. Cavalry discovered their guns weren’t nearly as capable of taking down attackers as they thought. During the Philippine-American War the adrenaline-fueled charges of the Moro Warriors proved more than capable of standing up to the ammunition fired by the cavalry, and when the war ended, the cavalry began looking for a more capable round. Testing including the rather infamous Thompson-LaGarde Tests which involved shooting cadavers and live cattle, and when all was said and done, the .45 ACP was chosen for its stopping power and overall wound-creating ability.
These .45 ACP rounds are made by Federal. At 165 grain they’re somewhat lightweight for the cartridge size, meaning they’re capable of moving down-range at higher speeds and will also keep felt recoil to a minimum. These are Jacketed Hollow Point, or JHP, rounds and begin to expand immediately upon impact. Their jackets control expansion, allowing the bullets to penetrate more deeply and create a larger, more devastating wound cavity. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 1060 feet per second. This ammunition is designed for self-defense use.
When you order this single box of ammunition from Federal you get 20 defense rounds. That’s just enough to keep your gun and spare magazine loaded and ready for personal protection. If you want to get target practice in with these rounds, which is highly recommended due to the fact that defense rounds produce more recoil and muzzle rise than target rounds, you’ll want to order more than one box. These are fresh brass cases with boxer primer, so you can collect your spent brass reload it, and get even more range time. Federal manufactures ammunition at their longtime factory in Anoka, Minnesota, according to high standards. Order now, and be prepared.
