- Q & A
During the Philippine-American War the U.S. Cavalry was armed with guns chambered in .38 Long Colt and .30-40 Krag, among others. They soon discovered their weapons weren’t effective at stopping the adrenaline-fueled charges of the Moro Warriors despite the warriors being armed only with handmade wooden weapons. It didn’t take long for the cavalry to decide they needed more powerful guns. This led to testing including the Thompson-LaGarde Tests of 1904, which led to the decision that a .45 caliber bullet was a must. This led to the creation of the .45 ACP, a round popular among many special forces operators today.
These particular rounds are made by Federal for your .45 ACP. Each round weighs in at 230 grain which makes these relatively heavyweight rounds for the cartridge size. Being heavier enables them to strike targets with greater force which is just what you want from a defense round. These are JHP, jacketed hollow point, rounds and begin to expand immediately upon impact. Their jackets control expansion, allowing for greater penetration and the creation of a devastating wound cavity. This ammunition is specifically designed for self-defense use.
When you order this ammunition from Federal you get 120 rounds broken down into 100 rounds of American Eagle FMJ for training use and 20 rounds of Federal Hydra-Shok JHP for self-defense. That’s enough to keep your gun and spare magazines loaded and ready and also enough for dedicated target practice. Remember, defense rounds produce more felt recoil and muzzle rise than target rounds, so the only way to ensure expansion is through practice. Each of these rounds produces a muzzle velocity of 850 feet per second and muzzle energy of 369 foot-pounds. Federal manufactures ammunition at their longtime factory in Anoka, Minnesota according to high standards. Order now to train like you may one day need to fight.
