- Q & A
.45 ACP ammunition cartridges are big and bold cartridge with a particular characteristic that makes it more appealing to many gun owners: it’s one of the rare handgun rounds capable of inducing hydrostatic shock with just a target round. It’s used by many special forces operators due to its wounding potential and favored by some self-defense shooters because it combines power with a felt recoil that surprises newcomers in its manageability. From a historical standpoint the .45 ACP has a fairly interesting background as well, having been created for the U.S. Cavalry when they realized they were in need of a more powerful round for cav members. The .45 ACP has been around since 1904, and thanks to advances in ballistics, it’s only gotten more powerful over the years.
These .45 ACP rounds weigh 185 grain, making them somewhat light for the cartridge size. Being lighter enables them to zip towards targets at higher speeds while also somewhat lessening felt recoil, and they’re still loaded with that broad .451” bullet. These are JHP, or Jacketed Hollow Point, rounds and begin to expand immediately at the moment of impact. Their jackets control expansion, allowing the bullet to penetrate more deeply, creating a more devastating wound cavity. Each round delivers a muzzle velocity of 900 feet per second and muzzle energy of 333 foot-pounds. This ammunition is designed for self-defense use.
When you order this case of ammunition from PMC you get 1000 defense rounds. If that seems like an excessively large number of JHPs, it really isn’t. Defense ammunition has greater recoil than target rounds, which means you need to spend time practicing in order to be sure of accuracy and proper shot placement, especially in the case of follow-up shots. Trigger time with your chosen defense rounds could be the difference between life and death someday. PMC manufactures all ammunition at their factories in Angnang and Dongrae, South Korea, according to exacting standards. These are new production, brass-cased rounds with boxer primer, so they can be reloaded, giving you even more range time. Don’t wait until it’s too late. Order now, and prepare to defend yourself.
