- Q & A
If you’ve ever been asked why you carry a .45 ACP for self-defense and replied with “because they don’t make a 46” you just might be a seasoned .45 ACP owner. Of course, the reality is there are a lot of great reasons for owning a gun chambered in this brawny caliber, from its ability to create hydrostatic shock in a human-sized target with just a target round to its ability to create an enormous wound cavity with expanding rounds – well, there are other reasons. For example, the .45 ACP creates surprisingly minimal muzzle flash, and the felt recoil is far less than many shooters expect. Your .45 ACP is a powerful gun, and if you carry it for self-defense you should make sure to load it with the right ammunition.
These .45 ACP rounds are made by Speer, and at 230 grain they’re the heavyweights for this cartridge size. Being heavier means they deliver a mightier blow, and that’s exactly what you want from a defense round. These are Jacketed Hollow Point (JHP) rounds and deliver rapid energy transfer on impact while also beginning to expand immediately upon impact. The jackets control expansion, allowing the bullet to penetrate more fully, creating a deeper, more devastating wound cavity. Each of these rounds has a muzzle velocity of 890 feet per second and muzzle energy of 404 foot-pounds. This ammunition is specifically designed for self-defense, and these are truly capable rounds.
There are 50 defense rounds in this single box of ammunition. With 50 rounds you can keep your .45 ACP and spare mags loaded and ready for personal protection. If you want to get target practice in with your chosen defense rounds, which is recommended due to the greater felt recoil and muzzle flip of these rounds, you’ll want to order more than one box. And because Speer produces these rounds in fresh brass cases with boxer primer, you can reload your spent casings. Speer manufactures ammunition at their factory in Lewiston, Idaho, right along the banks of the Snake River. Place your order today and prepare to defend yourself and your loved ones.

- Is this the new G2 Gold Dot bullet design? thanks Posted On: 11/15/2021 By: Casey R Watson
- No sir, this ammo is loaded with Speer's original Gold Dot JHP. Wider nose cavity without an elastomer filling, but still one of the best bullets on the market for personal protection.
