.45 ACP was created in 1904 by John Browning in response to the U.S. Cavalry’s need for a more powerful cartridge. During the American-Philippine War Cavalry members had discovered their service weapons weren’t capable of halting the adrenaline-laced charges of the Moro Warriors, and after suffering all too many loses the military decided a bigger, badder cartridge was a must have. Rounds of testing followed including the rather famous Thompson-LaGarde tests of 1904 and when all was said and done it was the .45 ACP that won the day. The .45 ACP met the expectations set by Army Ordnance member General John Thompson who said the cavalry required a round that was a “real man stopper.”
At 185 grain these are relatively lightweight rounds for the man-stopping .45 ACP cartridge, and that means they’re capable of greater speeds than the heavier rounds are. These are FMJ rounds, so they’re not going to expand on impact but simply strike their target, penetrate, and continue on their way. All target rounds tend to over-penetrate, and that’s why it’s a must to have a good, solid backstop in place. Each of these rounds has a muzzle velocity of 820 feet per second and muzzle energy of 343 foot-pounds. This ammunition is meant specifically for target practice, self-defense training, and plinking.
