When asked why they carry a .45 ACP for personal protection, many shooters simply smile and reply “Because they don’t make a .46.” But the reality is that .45 ACP is a big, show-stopping round, and when you’re protecting yourself and your family, you don’t want any doubts how it will end up. The .45 ACP was created in 1904 for the US Cavalry because, as Army Ordnance member General John Thompson once said, a real “man stopper” was needed. That’s what this is; a real man stopper. And that’s why the .45 ACP has a dedicated following: because many firearms aficionados want to be able to have utter confidence in their personal carry weapon.
These are heavyweight 230 grain rounds. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t still fairly quick; each round has a muzzle velocity of 875 feet per second. And with a muzzle energy of 390 foot-pounds – combined with the knockdown power of a JHP round – these rounds mean business. Jacketed hollow points have greater case strength than the average HP does and also go easier on your gun because they resist stripping, which means far less lead fouling your gun’s barrel. They deliver fantastic energy transfer, mushroom upon impact, and are capable of leaving major devastation in their paths. Basically, they’re everything you want from defense rounds.
