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.

    great ammo

    This ammo fires great in rugged sr1911, springfield xds and 1911g desert eagle, also the brass is about as good as you can get for reloading.

    Great ammo

    No issues with first 150 rounds. Was going to buy brass for reloading, but 1000 pieces was 2/3 the price of these new rounds. Accurate enough for soda cans at 25 yards, just great practice ammunition.

    Winchester loads their USA Ready line of ammunition to match specs! Each round of 45 ACP in this box features Winchester’s most accurate FMJ bullet alongside a match grade primer, and also comes from the same exact lot as its 49 brothers and sisters. Once you’ve received your box of ammo, you can even go to winchester.com/usareadyinfo to look up its specific ballistic data.

    This round’s bullet weighs in at the standard 230 grains, and is loaded to a peppy 880 fps muzzle velocity for the ever-so-slightly flatter trajectory which lends itself so well to tight groupings. The bullet’s flat nose enhances optimal feeding in a magazine-fed firearm, and its low-drag profile helps to preserve superior downrange velocities.

    This ammo’s brass cases have been drawn and cut according to precise tolerances, and have concentric walls which contain highly standardized charges of clean-burning propellant. Whether you’re actually competing or just want to gauge what you and your pistol are capable of pulling off together, this is your American-made 45 ammo.

    Though it is an older jacketed hollow-point (JHP) design, Federal Hi-Shok is still offered today because it has a legendary reputation for reliable feeding and an ability to end fights that is backed up by years of real world law enforcement statistics. The .45 Auto Hi-Shok JHP projectile design utilizes a wide-mouth cavity bordered by light jacket serrations which provides reliable expansion at lower velocities; this ensures increased internal damage done to a threat while reducing the risk of collateral damage, even out of a short-barreled carry pistol.

    The 230 grain bullets are the perfect weight for the .45 ACP caliber and are known for dependable cycling and smooth recoil in full size handguns. Each bullet is seated into a reloadable brass casing with a mid-body cannelure which prevents setback and subsequent malfunction. The casings are fitted with non-corrosive Boxer primers which burn cleanly and contribute to your firearm's good health.

    If you choose to tote and shoot the venerable .45 ACP, then be sure to check out Widener's stock of practice ammunition for your range sessions and competitive matches.

    185 grains is a popular choice for .45 Auto shooters who want less muzzle rise during target practice. Each projectile is crimped into a reloadable brass casing which hosts Winchester's own powder and Boxer primer which are produced completely in-house. The WinClean line uses clean-burning powder and lead-free priming material that won't leave behind any heavy metal particulate on the shooter's hands. Winchester manufactures this ammo using over 150 years of experience during which they have honed their craft and gained the trust of the American public.

In this .45 ACP loads, parts include non-corrosive Boxer primers fitted to reloadable brass casings that carry clean-burning powder.

    As a self-defense cartridge, the round is topped a JHP (jacketed hollow point) projectile which features a deep cavity and precisely skived copper jacket for reliable expansion as well as a gently sloping ogive for smooth feeding in semi-automatic handguns and carbines. A projectile weight of 230 grains matches the majority of trusted .45 Auto configurations and familiar cycling characteristics alongside subsonic muzzle velocity for suppressed home-defense pistols. Upon impact with a threat, the heavyweight projectile will experience an expansive increase in diameter, causing it to throw more energy into the target and create a more effective wound cavity while losing its potential for lethal over-penetration.

    Federal's HST (unofficially called Hi-Shok 2) cartridges represent today's peak in defensive handgun ammunition. These rounds utilize a jacketed hollow-point (JHP) projectile weighing in at 230 grains for ideal ballistics and reliability with the widest range of .45 ACP handguns.

    HST JHP bullets have a deep cavity with a wide brim surrounded externally by precisely placed bi-cut serrations and internally by tiny tabs of the brass jacket. This intricate design results in massive, flowering expansion which reduces the risk of collateral damage caused by a "shoot-through" while increasing the round's threat-stopping ability. In addition, the projectiles possess a very deep cannelure to which they are crimped that prevents jacket separation from the lead core on impact and preserves penetrating power.

    Federal Premium HST ammo is constructed using non-corrosive Boxer primers fitted into reloadable brass casings which are nickel-plated for smooth feeding and extraction, even when a pistol is dirty from an extended range session. The casings also have light crimping at the base of the bullet position which prevents setback caused by repeat chambering. The powder mixture in these rounds burns very cleanly with minimal muzzle flash which enables more effective follow-up shots.

    The HoneyBadger by Black Hills Ammunition doesn’t look like your everyday run-of-the-mill self-defense bullet. It doesn’t even have a nose cavity that could get jammed up with clothing fabric – but that’s only its first of many advantages.

    This 45 ACP round’s 135 grain bullet is 100% copper. There is no lead that could foul up a barrel to make a handgun inaccurate. There is no core and jacket to detach from each other, and copper itself is resilient enough to ensure superior weight retention. The HoneyBadger is also highly accurate, as its monolithic body is evenly distributed in weight.

    Instead of a nose cavity, the HoneyBadger features four narrow ridges which sit in a plus-formation. These shred through barriers, but the grooves between them do the real work of terminal ballistics. It is thanks to these grooves that the HoneyBadger is able to blast any soft tissue its tip comes into contact with outward, which creates the permanent wound cavity needed to neutralize a threat quickly.

    This ammunition is loaded with premium brass cases, as well as carefully matched non-corrosive Boxer primers and clean-burning powder. This ammo performs reliably in carbines as well, and it even reduces the chance of overpenetration just like a normal JHP should!
