If you have ever responded with “because they don’t make a 46” when asked why you carry .45 ACP ammo, you just might be a jerk. But you could also be one of the chosen few: die-hard .45 Auto fans who live for the round and understand you can’t get much more power out of a handgun round. There’s a lot to be a fan of in these solid handgun rounds, from their manageable recoil, which surprises many first-timers, to its excellent stopping power. The .45 ACP has been around since the Philippine-American War, when the U.S. Cavalry realized their men needed far more powerful handguns. In typical government fashion, they spent years conducting tests, and after awhile decided, yes, the .45 ACP was the way to go.
These particular .45 ACP rounds weigh in at 230 grain, making them fairly heavy for the cartridge size. Being heavier weight means they’re able to strike targets with a bigger impact, leaving a bigger hole in stationary targets. These are Full Metal Jacket, FMJ, rounds and do not expand on impact. These rounds can travel some distance before coming to a stop on their own, so make sure you have a good backstop in place. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 865 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 371 foot pounds. This ammunition is designed for target practice, self-defense training, and plinking.
When you order this single box of ammunition from RWS you get 50 target rounds, which is just enough for a good afternoon of target practice. These boxes are a great size for stashing in your range bag when you’re heading out for some range time or stacking in your gun safe for a rainy day – or whatever the weather may be when you decide to use them. These are brand new production, brass-cased rounds with boxer primer, so you can collect your spent casings and reload them.
