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.

    CCI Blazer Brass ammunition is a cost-effective choice for target shooting and a great alternative to imported steel for reloaders. As the name suggests, it differs from standard Blazer ammo in its use of reloadable brass cases.

    Each .45 ACP cartridge in this case of 1,000 fires a 230 grain full metal jacket bullet at a muzzle velocity of 830 feet per second. This is a standard pressure load ideal for older and subcompact firearms.

    This ammo is loaded in Lewiston, Idaho using CCI's own non-corrosive Boxer primers, which are well known for their reliability. CCI is part of the Vista Outdoor group which includes Speer, Federal, Estate, and many other shooting-related brands.

    Grab this 1,000-round case of .45 ACP ammunition from Speer's Lawman series for quality training with your Glock, 1911, XD, M&P, or other .45 Auto pistol. These cartridges are great for all range use, but provide the most benefit for those who carry Speer Gold Dot self-defense ammo. Lawman ammo is designed as an inexpensive range substitute for Gold Dots, providing the same point of impact and recoil as the more costly hollow point while remaining economical enough to shoot in high quantities.

    These cartridges have a ballistic profile similar to conventional mil-spec "ball" and fire a heavy 230-grain total metal jacket bullet that clocks in at 830 feet per second at the muzzle. TMJ bullets have enclosed lead bases and are ideal for shooting in suboptimally ventilated areas like indoor ranges. Expect stout but not excessively snappy recoil. As a standard pressure load, this ammunition works well in both full-size service handguns and subcompact concealed carry pistols.

    Speer Lawman ammunition is proudly made in the USA using noncorrosive Boxer primers and reloadable brass.

    Ammo didn't appear to be factory new

    When I received the 1,000 rounds that I'd ordered, many of the rounds had spots on them which made it appear that they'd been sitting around for quite some time in a high humidity environment. The box was severely damaged in shipping, not the fault of Wideners, but the packaging probably could've been more sturdy. One of the bullets was actually pushed down in the casing, still fired though. For what I'd paid, I'd expected the ammo to arrive looking cleaner and newer like new factory ammo usually does. I don't know if this is how this brand of ammo (Speer Lawman) just is, or if it's because it's been stored in a humid environment, but quite a lot of the powder is not burning and my arm was covered with flakes of unburned power after firing 200 rounds of it; this usually only happens with junk ammo.

    Positive, endorsement

    Bullet design and weight are important to me when selecting a load for carry in my 1911, or my SIG P 227. Especially since I don't favor +P loadings to get the job done. Wideners has a good price on these too.

    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.
