The classic good looks, substantial increase in stopping power over typical .45 loads and the perks of the Remington high end defense load make this +P jacketed 185 grain hollow point a fine choice for traditionalists who need a reliable .45 ACP self-defense or duty round they can count on to penetrate deep enough, hit hard enough and put enough lead on target shot after shot.
A significant boost in power with the +P load, this 185 grain cartridge gives an excellent amount of energy on target; effectively giving you a higher penetrating round with the same hard hitting power the traditional .45 round is known for. The enhanced penetration and velocity offers better total stopping power – which is what self defense is all about. 1,140 feet per second out of a .45 ACP; 535 ft. lbs. of energy at the muzzle and a massive 185 grain projectile means you are loading out a true one shot stop.
The price for such a great personal defense round is a value. The nickel plated brass and boxer primer makes this easily reloadable. The recoil for this round is still slow and rolling like other .45 Auto, but is a bit snappier.
