45 ACP Ammo

.45 ACP ammunition is the most well-known of John Browning's series of pistol cartridge designs, and for good reason. Used in a variety of iconic firearms including the M1911, Thompson SMG, and Glock 21, this cartridge delivers strong performance for self-defense purposes. Its recoil, though stout, is typically described as a heavy "push" than a "snap." These days, you'll find reliable training and defensive rounds for sale from the top manufacturers in the ammo world, like PMC, Federal, Winchester and more.

The classic "ball" .45 ACP load fires a 230 grain full metal jacket bullet at around 850 feet per second; jacketed hollow points (JHPs) often feature a lighter 185 grain bullet fired at velocities approaching 1,000 feet per second. This produces better expansion while still making full use of the .45's high caliber.

Handguns chambered in .45 ACP are popular for suppressed use as the .45 is inherently subsonic; even more powerful loads will not produce the sonic "crack" that high-velocity cartridges typically do.

    If you ever need to use your carry weapon in self-defense, you can count on Federal HST ammunition. These .45 ACP cartridges use a high pressure +P loading to propel a heavy 230 grain jacketed hollow point bullet to a muzzle velocity of 950 feet per second, delivering strong six petal expansion and solid penetration.

    Due to the +P load, this ammo produces more severe recoil than standard pressure .45 Auto; this effect is more pronounced in compact firearms.

    Federal HST cartridges are loaded in Anoka, Minnesota and use nickel-plated brass cases and non-corrosive Boxer primers.
