During the Philippine-American Wars, the U.S. Cavalry struggled to fend off the frenzied charges of the Moro Warriors. The guns they were using just weren’t capable of providing the stopping power needed; even though the enemy was armed with mostly wooden weapons, they were still deadly, and the adrenaline that field those charges also helped them ignore being shot long enough to carry out attacks. When the war was over the cavalry set about finding a new caliber, which led to the Thompson-LaGarde Tests, and in the end, the .45 ACP was created.
These .45 ACP rounds weigh 200 grain, making them fairly heavy for the cartridge size. At this weight they may move a bit more slowly but they hit with enormous force. These are Lead Semi Wad-Cutter rounds and do not expand on impact; the lead may deform slightly on impact but should not be mistaken for expansion. Each of these rounds flies down-range at a muzzle velocity of 950 feet per second and muzzle energy of 401 foot-pounds. This ammunition is specifically designed for target practice, shooting drills, and plinking.
There are 50 target rounds in this single box of ammunition. That’s just enough ammunition to get a brief afternoon at the range and to give your gun a small snack, so if you want to give your gun a bigger meal, order multiple boxes. This ammunition is produced in fresh brass cases with boxer primer, so you can collect your spent brass, reload it, and get right back to shooting. Magtech manufactures this ammunition at their factory in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Your .45 ACP has one big appetite, so get your order in, and feed your gun.
