During World War II, Joyce Hornady was a marksmanship instructor for the U.S. Military. As an avid sportsman he was well-suited for the work, and when the war ended, he and his family opened a sporting goods store. But as the first few years after the war passed and shooters worked their way through the surplus rounds from the military, it quickly became obvious to Joyce Hornady that greater accuracy and quality was needed in the world of ammunition. His solution was to make it himself, and in 1949, he founded Hornady. Their slogan is “Accurate. Deadly. Dependable.” and when it comes to the ammunition produced by the venerable company, those three words ring true.
These rounds are made just for your .45 ACP. They’re JHP’s; jacketing allows for more controlled expansion on impact which allows for deeper penetration than the average hollow point. When it comes to self-defense, you need to keep your gun loaded with ammunition like this both for one-shot stopping power and also to ensure the safety of innocent bystanders. At 200 grain they’re moderately heavy rounds, so they’re light even to attain good speed while heavy enough to deliver hitting power. They have a muzzle velocity of 900 feet per second and muzzle energy of 358 foot-pounds. And because Hornady produces them in virgin brass cases using boxer primer, they can be reloaded.
There are 20 defense rounds in this single box. It’s a great size for firing a few rounds down-range to get a feel for the increased power of these eXtreme Terminal Performance rounds and just right for keeping your .45 ACP loaded for self-defense. Hornady manufactures this ammunition at their long-time plant in Grand Island, Nebraska, to stringent standards. You carry your .45 ACP for protection because life is unpredictable, and if you find yourself in a life-or-death situation, it’s vital that your gun is loaded with predictably accurate, deadly defense rounds. Order these Hornady XTP rounds to have confidence in what your mag is loaded with.
