50 Rounds of 230gr FMJ .45 ACP Ammo by Sellier & Bellot

40 Ready to Ship


You know you’ve got a powerful cartridge when the man most influential in its selection was General John T. Thompson, also known as the man behind the invention of the Thompson submachine gun. He served in the Spanish-American War, retired, and then re-upped to serve as the Army’s Director of Arsenals during World War I. When the war ended, he retired again – and perfected the Tommy gun. But before the Tommy gun, Thompson was instrumental in the .45 ACP becoming the Army’s cartridge of choice. After witnessing the failure of the .38 Long Colt in combat, he proclaimed the need for a real “man stopper,” and with the .45 ACP, he got it.

.45 ACP cartridge has precise specifications, including:

  • Case type: rimless and straight
  • Bullet diameter: .452 inches
  • Neck diameter: .473 inches
  • Base diameter: .476 inches
  • Rim diameter: .480 inches
  • Case length: .898 inches
  • Overall length: 1.275 inches
  • Case Capacity: 25 gr H2O
  • Rifling twist: 1 in 16 in (406mm)

Nice, but expensive.
Review by Me Delta
Nice and clean ammo. Cases clean right up for reloading. Not too much carbon build up on outside of pistol. Inside has some evidence of unburnt powder. Adverse amount of recoil felt. Adverse grouping at 75 feet, off hand without a rest, 3-5 inches. At 45 feet group all was smaller than my palm print. At 21 feet grouping was smaller than a tennis ball, and most of the group was golf ball size. Size of the box being smaller than most 50 count boxes helps keep storage size down to a minimum. Only the $20 dollar price was what I feel is a bit steep. All in all, a real nice practice and plinking round. Zero failures of any type were to be had out of 250 rounds. (Posted on 12/21/16)
Favorite brand....
Review by Dewey
Sellier & Bellot is my most favorite ammo brand. It's reliable, affordable and semi clean. I've tried a lot of other brands and I would rather wait for this brand to come back into stock, rather than using another brand. I also like the compact packaging size this brand comes in. I can store more ammo in a smaller space. I also try to use this brand for all of my caibers. (Posted on 8/4/14)
