- Q & A
Proponents of hydrostatic shock will be quick to tell you one of the fantastic aspects of the .45 ACP is its ability to product hydrostatic shock even with FMJ rounds. Most guns require a defense round with sufficient power behind it, but not the .45 ACP. So what exactly is hydrostatic shock? It refers to the way penetrating projectiles such as bullets are capable of producing a significant wound cavity that is so traumatic it causes a hydraulic effect in liquid-filled tissue. That effect causes vital fluids that are not blood to rapidly drain from living tissue, causing incapacitation at a greater rate than blood loss alone. Whether or not you have faith in hydrostatic shock, you know your .45 ACP is capable of massive knockdown power, especially when loaded with defense rounds like these JHP’s from Federal.
These are heavyweight 230 grain rounds, so they’re going to do some serious damage to targets. They’re JHP’s and deliver controlled expansion on impact, penetrating more deeply than standard HPs to create catastrophic wound channels. Each round leaves your gun at a muzzle velocity of 900 feet per second and hits hard with a muzzle energy of 414 foot-pounds. This ammunition is specifically designed for self-defense, but it’s also a good idea to get some target time in with it to become accustomed to its greater power and increased felt recoil.
There are 50 defense rounds in this box, so you can keep your .45 ACP loaded and ready for a self-defense situation. This ammunition is made by Federal, a company with almost 100 years of experience manufacturing ammo at their plant in Anoka, Minnesota. All their ammo undergoes rigorous testing and strict quality control. Federal takes self-defense seriously, and so should you. Loading your gun with JHPs such as these is a must not only for one-shot stopping power but also because they decelerate on impact, preventing over-penetration, which keeps innocent bystanders safe. When your .45 ACP is loaded with this defense ammunition you can be confident your gun is capable of performing the job it needs to: protecting you and your loved ones. Don’t wait for the worst to happen; order without delay.
