- Q & A
During the Philippine-American War the U.S. Cavalry discovered their handguns were ineffectual against the adrenaline-fueled charges of the Moro Warriors. Although the cavalry was up against natives bearing weapons crafted from wood, which were still deadly but shouldn’t have been quite such a good match against guns, they were suffering losses. After the war they began looking into creating a new cartridge, and after significant studies including the somewhat controversial Thompson-LeGarde Tests, the .45 ACP was born. .45 ACP rounds are heavy and capable of serious force, and odds are If you own one it’s for self-defense purposes.
These particular .45 ACP rounds are 185 grain, making them somewhat light for the cartridge. At this weight these rounds are able to soar down-range at higher speeds than their heavier counterparts while retaining enough weight to still pack an impressive punch. These are Jacketed Hollow Point, JHP, rounds and begin to expand immediately upon impact. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 960 feet per second and muzzle energy of 371 foot-pounds. This ammunition is specifically designed for self-defense.
