A viable option for anyone who needs a hard hitting, smooth shooting, reliable range load for practicing with their .45 Auto and wants something that can function any gun. This is Federal Ammunition’s .45 ACP hardball load with the 230 grain full metal jacket round nose projectile that offers straightforward reliable performance and a smooth experience due to the consistency of the load and the quality of the components that make it up.
There isn’t much to say about the round itself, it’s been a proven load in the United Sates since it was in use by the military many years ago. The hardball round has a tendency to be very reliable regardless of the mechanism that is trying to digest it. The round nose and the full metal jacket allow for easy feeding; the brass case is slick enough and resilient enough to help with extraction and ejection; and the consistency of the build form Federal’s manufacturing plants is very high, so the reliability in turn is very high. Federal has a tendency to run some of the tightest tolerances and have one of the most progressive quality control protocols of any major producer – this contributes to the long-term success of their ammunition and allows for a load like this to be very good at delivering on reliability expectations.
