Estate is a subsidiary of Federal, a company that was founded in 1922 by Charles Horn. The company got its start selling ammunition in barber shops and grocery stores and soon moved on to bigger sales such as being awarded a government contract to build and operate what is now known as the Twin City Ordnance Plant. Federal manufactured ammunition for the U.S. military through multiple wars, and their efforts were awarded with an Army-Navy “E” for excellence. Among their other achievements is the fact their ammunition has been used by Olympic marksmen to win gold, silver, and bronze medals.
These Estate rounds are for your .45 ACP and weigh in at 230 grain. That makes them heavy for the cartridge size and capable of dealing a hefty punch to targets. These are Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) rounds and do not expand on impact but simply penetrate and continue on their way. Each round leaves the barrel of your gun with a muzzle velocity of 830 feet per second and muzzle energy of 352 foot-pounds. This ammunition is best for target practice, shooting drills, and those days you just want to blow holes in a bunch of pop cans and watermelons.
When you place your order for this box of ammunition you get 1000 target rounds. Just think of what you can do with that much ammo. You can practice shooting prone, kneeling, and from behind cover as well as working on your weak-handed skills, and still have ammo left over for plinking. And because Estate makes this ammo in virgin brass cases with boxer primer, you can burn through the entire box, collect your spent casings, reload, and get right back to the range. Estate is produced at Federal’s longtime plant in Anoka, Minnesota, according to high standards. Order now to spend quality time with your big, brawny .45 ACP.
