When asked why you carry a .45 ACP for personal protection you might be prone to replying “Because they don’t make a .46” but the truth is you carry it for its fantastic power. The .45 ACP is one of the rare handgun calibers capable of producing hydrostatic shock with just a target round, and it isn’t as hard to control as some shooters assume. In fact, the .45 ACP produces what many deem surprisingly manageable recoil along with relatively low muzzle flash and flip, especially when you take into account just how big the cartridge is. It’s an excellent self-defense round, although, of course, you need to load your gun with the right defense rounds if you’re going to carry it for protection.
These Magtech First Defense rounds are made with your .45 ACP in mind. At 165 grain these are fairly lightweight rounds, which gives them the ability to reach out to your target with greater speed and also helps to keep recoil manageable. They’re SCHP – Solid Copper Hollow Point – rounds, so they shoot clean and begin to expand immediately upon impact. These rounds deliver rapid energy transfer and reliable expansion, penetrating deeply to create a crippling wound channel. These are also +P rounds, lending them even greater power. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 1100 feet per second and muzzle energy of 443 foot-pounds. These rounds are made specifically for self-defense and are capable of immense stopping power.
There are 20 defense rounds in this single box of ammunition from Magtech. 20 rounds is just enough to load your gun and keep it ready for a self-defense scenario should the worst-case situation occur. Because defense rounds produce significantly more power than target rounds it’s a good idea to get range time in with your chosen defense ammunition to ensure follow-up shot placement, and that means it’s wise to buy extra boxes for training purposes. Magtech manufactures ammunition at their vertically integrated plant in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Don’t trust just anyone with the safety of yourself and your family. Buy Magtech and be confident you hold true stopping power in the palm of your hand.
