When the .38 Long Colt rounds widely used by the U.S. Cavalry in an attempt to fight back against the Moro warriors during the Philippine-American wars failed drastically, the cavalry set about coming up with more effective rounds for their men. Part of that process was the Thompson-LaGarde Tests of 1904. During those tests Colonel John Thompson and Major Louis LaGarde fired numerous rounds of various calibers into cattle and cadavers, meticulously recording the results. In the end it became clear the round could be no less than the .45, and at the time the only .45 was the .45 Colt. After some design changes, the .45 ACP was created and immediately adopted by the cavalry.

These .45 ACP rounds are a weighty 230 grain. At this heavy weight they make a serious impact, tearing massive holes in targets. These are Jacketed Hollow Point (JHP) rounds, meaning they impact targets, impart stunning energy transfer, and begin controlled expansion immediately upon impact. Because the jackets control expansion, the bullets are able to penetrate more deeply than standard HPs, creating larger, more devastating wound cavities. Each of these rounds has a muzzle velocity of 875 feet per second and muzzle energy of 390 foot-pounds. This ammunition is specifically designed for self-defense.

There are 1000 defense rounds in this case of ammunition from Federal. With this many JHP rounds you can spend serious time working on shot placement and accuracy, and that’s incredibly important when it comes to increasing your chances of surviving an attack. Repetition and careful training will get you used to the increase in felt recoil, allowing you to master muzzle flip to return your gun to center each time for precise grouping. This ammunition is made by Federal at their nearly-century old factory in Anoka, Minnesota. If you want to become the most proficient self-defense shooter possible, you need to train with large quantities of defense ammo such as this. Order today, and prepare to defend yourself.
