The .45 ACP is one awesome round. It’s one of the only handgun rounds outside the magnum category capable of producing hydrostatic shock with just target rounds and produces significant energy thanks to its weight. It even has an interesting history, having been designed for the U.S. Cavalry after the Philippine-American War proved the ammunition they’d been using wasn’t nearly strong enough to stop the adrenaline-fueled charges of the Moro Warriors. When the war ended, extensive testing was carried out to determine what caliber to use, and in the end the .45 ACP was created. It has stopping power and less muzzle flip and felt recoil than many people realize. It’s a great round, and if you own a gun chambered in this round, you want ammo to feed it.
These .45 ACP rounds are 230 grain, putting them at the heavyweight end of the scale for the cartridge size. At this weight these rounds are capable of doing serious damage to targets. These are Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) rounds and so will not expand on impact but will simply penetrate and continue on their way, so make sure you have a good backstop in place during target practice. Each of these rounds flies down-range at a muzzle velocity of 890 feet per second and muzzle energy of 369 foot-pounds. This ammunition is fantastic for target practice, shooting drills, and plinking.
There are 50 target rounds in this single box of ammunition. This ammunition is manufactured by Federal, a company with almost 100 years of experience manufacturing quality ammunition.
