If you’ve ever been asked why you own a .45 ACP and replied “Because they don’t make a .46” you’re not alone. The .45 ACP has fantastic stopping power and is, in fact, one of the only handgun cartridges capable of creating hydrostatic shock with target rounds. And much to the surprise of those trying the caliber for the first time, the .45 ACP has manageable recoil, minimal muzzle flip, and an overall smoother performance than other larger calibers. Of course, it also has a big appetite, so you’re going to need to feed it.
These .45 ACP rounds from Estate weigh in at 230 grain, making them relatively heavy. They’re still going to fly down-range fast, but at this weight it’s all about producing a harder hit. These are Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) rounds, so they’re not going to expand on impact and will simply keep on going after penetrating your target. As with any target practice make sure you have a good backstop in place. Each round leaves the barrel of your gun with a muzzle velocity of 830 feet per s0econd and muzzle energy of 343 foot-pounds. This ammunition is ideal for target practice, shooting drills, and plinking.
There are 50 target rounds in this single box of ammunition. These boxes are a great size for stashing in your range bag or stacking in your safe for a rainy day (or whatever day you want to go shooting). Of course, 50 rounds is going to be gone before you know it, so if you want some truly extensive range time, you’d better order more than one box. This ammunition is made by Federal Estate at their longtime factory in Anoka, Minnesota. Federal Estate produces this ammunition in fresh brass cases using boxer primer, so it can be reloaded.
