A reduction in powder and a better burning powder choice is at the heart of the performance matrix for this suppressor specific ammunition offered by Federal American Eagle. The lower velocity (840 feet per second) and the reduced powder charge gives it enough to function most firearms, without losing the subsonic quality (reducing the sound through elimination of the sonic boom) that is desirable for suppressed shooting.
The otherwise hardball round that features a 230 grain round nosed projectile and a Boxer primed brass case cartridge is pretty well known and loved. It features a reliable feeding profile and enough oomph to cycle the mainstream collection of .45 ACP semi autos. Yes, the ballistics seem anemic, but this round is made for enjoyment, not necessarily stopping power. The round achieves 840 feet per second at the muzzle along with 360 pound feet of kinetic energy delivery.
Federal and the American Eagle brand has been delivering high quality performance for decades and every seasoned American shooter knows the brand name and the reputation it brings along with it. This is a specialty round, but it functions smoothly and without trouble. Note this is suitable for any .45 ACP firearm, but is purpose-built for suppressed firearms.
