This is a personal defense load for dedicated loyalists of the very interesting .45 GAP that shortened the overall case length and made the .45’s power available to those with smaller hands or those who have little tolerance for a hard to handle grip frame. This is very evenly matched to the .45ACP in terms of ballistics, but the cartridge is significantly shorter. It represents a very interesting development and shows that innovation is still very much alive in the industry. It is still popular with the early adopters.
This is the Federal ultra-premium loadout for the .45 Gap and offers a proven projectile in the Hydra-Shok jacketed hollow point in 230 grains. An impressive 880 feet per second velocity and 395 ft. lbs. of energy out of the barrel means this is basically on par with the similarly loaded .45 ACP and still offers the same type of stopping power that .45 enthusiasts have seen from the .45 Auto.
The premium brass casing is nickel plated and the Boxer primer makes it easily reloadable. The reliability is second to none and the on-target performance is excellent with a heavy penetration and good uniformity in the expansion, assured by the heavily engineered Hydra-Shok bullet.
