- Q & A
If you’ve ever been asked why you own a .45 ACP and replied that it’s because there’s isn’t a 46, you’re clearly a dedicated .45 ACP fan and you might want to learn a little bit about .500 S&W! (haha). It’s a cartridge widely used in the special forces community which is especially understandable given the inability of the military to use defense rounds in combat. .45 ACP is one of the few pistol rounds capable of causing hydrostatic shock with just a target round. It’s a hefty round, one capable of causing serious damage, but even though it’s able to do damage with a target round, it’s still a good idea to load your concealed carry weapon with quality defense rounds.
These particular defense rounds are manufactured by Hornady, a company respected and known for its exceptional quality. At 185 grain these are moderately weighted .45 ACP rounds and will impact targets with compelling force. They’re Hornady’s XTP rounds and begin to expand immediately on impact, delivering balanced, controlled expansion thanks to the strategically placed serrations in their jackets. Each of these rounds has a muzzle velocity of 970 feet per second and muzzle energy of 386 foot-pounds. These defense rounds are known for the reliable functioning as well as their ability to create a sizeable wound cavity.
There are just 20 defense rounds in this single box of Hornady ammunition. With 20 rounds you can keep your .45 ACP ready for personal protection purposes, but if you want trigger time you need to buy extra boxes. Keep in mind that defense rounds produce more recoil than target rounds, so if you want to be truly prepared, you do need to train with your chosen defense ammunition. These are high quality rounds made by a respected American company and a fantastic choice for protecting yourself and your loved ones. Hornady manufactures ammunition at their longtime factory in Grand Island, Nebraska. To keep your .45 ACP loaded with defense rounds you can trust, order now.
