- Q & A
45 ACP shooters are typically big, bold and fanatical about the round --- and with good reason. 45 Auto is a tried and true staple for defensive shooters. It was created after the Philippine-American War when the U.S. Cavalry discovered their current rounds weren’t capable of halting the charges of the native warriors, and it’s continued on for decades as a popular self-defense round. Many newcomers to the round are surprised by its manageable recoil and low muzzle rise; it also has minimal muzzle flash and, of course, delivers impressive energy. If you have a handgun chambered in this bold round, odds are you use it for self-defense, which means you need some good defense rounds.
At 230 grain these particular .45 ACP rounds are fairly heavy, which means they deliver an even harder hit on impact. Being heavier may slow them down a bit, but it’s worth a small loss in velocity for the increase in stopping power. When it comes to self-defense, you want a round capable of inflicting catastrophic damage, and that’s what these promise. Each of these rounds moves towards targets at a muzzle velocity of 850 feet per second and impacts targets at a muzzle energy of 369 foot-pounds. These are Jacketed Hollow Point, or JHP, rounds and begin to expand on impact, mushrooming to create a devastating wound cavity. This ammunition is specifically meant for self-defense purposes.
There are 1000 defense rounds in this case of ammunition from Federal, and if that seems like a large number of defense rounds, think again. Defense ammunition creates greater recoil than target rounds meaning your accuracy and shot placement won’t be up to par without practice. Someday your life may depend on whether or not you put in sufficient training time. Federal has been manufacturing ammunition since 1922 and has a solid reputation in the industry. Ammunition is manufactured at their longtime plant in Anoka, Minnesota. If you want to be a truly proficient self-defense shooter, order now, and prepare to defend yourself.
