- Q & A
All too many shooters spend all their time training with their handguns standing at in a lane at their local gun range. Although that’s fine for basic target practice and learning accuracy, it isn’t good enough for self-defense training. In a self-defense situation you have no way of knowing what’s going to happen. Your strong hand could be injured, forcing you to shoot with your weak hand, or you could end up lying on your stomach – or back – or kneeling, among many other possible positions. You just don’t know what’s going to happen, so your training needs to cover every possible base.
At 230 grain these are pretty heavyweight rounds for the .45 ACP. Of course, when you’re talking about defense rounds, heavy is fantastic because it means a harder hit. These are Jacketed Hollow Points and begin to expand the instant the impact the target; expansion is controlled by the jacket, allowing for greater penetration than a standard HP and creating a catastrophic wound track. These rounds move towards your target with solid speed with a muzzle velocity of 850 feet per second and hit with compelling force at a muzzle energy of 369 foot-pounds. This is Federal’s Hi-Shok self-defense ammunition, which is used by numerous law enforcement agencies.
There are 1000 defense rounds in this case of ammunition. If that seems like a lot of defense rounds, it isn’t; defense ammunition produces significantly more felt recoil than target rounds do, and if you only train with target rounds you’re going to be in for an unpleasant surprise when you do use these. In a self-defense situation you must be able to maintain accuracy in your follow-up shots; remember, shot placement is everything. That means being accustomed to your ammunition, and with defense rounds that means firing quite a few of them well in advance of the day you need them to save your life. Federal manufactures ammunition at their plant in Anoka, Minnesota. Get yours today to become a truly prepared self-defense shooter.
