- Q & A
When you’re training for self-defense, there are countless drills you can do to improve your skill. One of the most popular ones is Jeff Cooper’s Mozambique Drill, which was originally developed in combat by a Rhodesian soldier. The idea is to put two rounds into center mass and follow up with a head shot, and although that may sound simple, it’s more complex than it sounds. First of all, in real life you’d be dealing with a moving target, not to mention you need to learn speed and accuracy from a draw, not an at-ready position. In order to properly train for it, start slow, taking the time to make sure your shot placement is good before you worry about speed. Your .45 ACP is a powerful handgun, and proper placement pretty much guarantees your survival.
These are 185 grain which is actually medium weight for the cartridge. They’re Jacketed Hollow Point rounds, so they have controlled expansion for deeper penetration and a more catastrophic wound channel. They also decelerate on impact, and that deceleration means they don’t over-penetrate like target rounds do, which keeps innocent bystanders safer. Each round has nice speed with a muzzle velocity of 1148 feet per second and muzzle energy of 542 foot-pounds. These are +P rounds, which are also known as overpressure rounds, and that gives them greater speed and power than the average defense round. When you load your .45 ACP for self-defense purposes, you want the most powerful ammunition you can get, and these are some compelling rounds.
There are 20 defense rounds in this box of ammunition. Magtech manufactures them at their plant in Sao Paulo, Brazil, where they’ve been since 1926, and carries out strict quality control to ensure your ammunition will perform well. All components are made on-site at Magtech, so they have greater quality control than most companies, which is part of what makes them both popular and trusted. Consider buying an extra box of defense ammunition to fire through your gun in advance so you’re aware of the greater power, that way you’re more likely to manage solid follow-up shots if the time comes. Get your order in and load your .45 ACP with Magtech Guardian Gold.
