45 GAP Bullets

45 GAP Bullets for Reloading

The 45 GAP is Glock’s first attempt to introduce a new cartridge to the commercial market. You don’t need to guess which cartridge the 45 GAP was meant to improve upon, and indeed the 45 GAP matches the 45 ACP’s power while reducing the chance of a case neck blowout.

The original max bullet weight for the 45 GAP was 200 grains, which is loaded to a higher pressure than 45 ACP to give it equivalent performance. The 45 GAP’s max pressure is 23,000 psi, about nine percent more than the 45 ACP, to make this possible. Since the 45 GAP is a smaller round, its greater pressure is achieved solely via more powerful powders. The 45 GAP has since been determined capable of firing 230 grain bullets, and load data for 150, 160, and 185 bullets are available as well. The 45 GAP’s bullet is .451 in diameter, so finding the correct bullets for reloading is as simple as finding 45 ACP component bullets.

The 45 GAP is a little shorter than its predecessor, with a .755 inch long case instead of .898 inches. Glock intended this to permit the design of smaller handguns. You could theoretically trim down 45 ACP brass to make 45 GAP brass, but their lengths alone aren’t the only thing that make the two cases different. You’re better off loading once-fired 45 GAP brass or investing in brand new cases.

    These component bullets are not loaded ammunition. You cannot use these bullets unless you handload your own ammo!

    Are you looking for a great deal on component bullets for 45 ACP, 45 GAP, or any of the other cartridges that demand a .451 diameter projectile? Then you’ve just found the X that marks the spot!

    As we move mountains of component bullets across the countryside, we frequently receive damaged boxes that aren’t suitable for shipment. (Sometimes we even damage those boxes ourselves in our warehouse.) Once we’ve collected enough bullets we sort them out by diameter and offer them for sale in lots of 250.

    What we don’t do is sort the bullets by weight or type, which means the .451 diameter bullets in this bag could very well represent every weight and style possible. You might get a mix of 185 grain and 230 grain bullets, FMJs and JHPs – it’s a true handloader’s grab bag! Once you’ve weighed them out and sorted them yourself, you’ll be ready to put your reloading press to work!

    Mixed .451 bullets

    Purchased 2 bags of these and had one full bag of lead. Other had about 30 / 40 cal/ 10mm bullets ( can't use), and the other were FMJ mixed, Meh! Not sure if I would buy any more.

    Review by Chachi Pop (Posted on 5/12/2021)

    MIxed .451 bullets

    I was quite disappointed as they were not what I expected. If you look at the photo you provided as Mixed .451- 250 count the bullets in the photo were copper and copper jacketed. I received lead bulletts all in 230 gr. they werent a mixed lot at all! Your add didn't once mention all lead or a mixture of lead. The photo was very deceiving, as was the add. If I had known what I was getting I wouldn't have ordered them!!!!

Berry's bullets are made with swaged lead cores that are plated to their final weight, then each projectile is re-struck to ensure the final product is very consistent.

    So far I am very happy they load nice and uniformly, I am eager to take them to the range!

    I saw these and jumped at the chance to order them. I have been looking at the empty store shelves too long. These arrived in a timely manner and packaged ok. They look good and load nicely, can't wait to put some down range.

    Great Bullet

    Great Bullet for loading 45ACP. Loaded 6.5grs of Unique powder, WW LP primers and range brass for blasting ammo. Worked flawlessly in all my 45 pistols, revolvers and HK USC Carbine. Would buy again.

    Review by Jeff (Posted on 12/21/2020)

    No complaints, stable rounds, great groupings!

    I usually reload with Speer 230 gr TMJ but these heads shot just as well with stable velocities and tight groupings.

    Armscor .45 reloading bullets

    I have been reloading for about 24 years. I found the Armscor product easy to reload. I have fired about 50 rounds so far without any malfunction.

    Review by Shootsalot (Posted on 11/24/2020)

    Service and product better than expected

    I had all the components needed to reload except bullets. I had never purchased anything from Widners but, they were the only firm that had 45 cal 230 gr bullets, also from a company with whom I had no
    experience, in their inventory. In desperation, I placed my order. My order arrived in only a few days and there’s been no discernible difference in my shot groups, at the range, using these bullets. I now have a new source, Widners, and an acceptable mfg.

    Just what the doctor ordered!

    These were for a friend. When I found your website I called him he added these to my order. Very good deal.

    Review by Sarge (Posted on 11/8/2020)

    Why not

    Have shot these before. They are quality bullets. If you did buy throughout the last year now is the time. In stock great packaging and in my case same day shipping. Use for range time or ringing plates. They load perfectly. Do not wait if you have the other components buy now.

    Review by Glenn (Posted on 11/3/2020)

    These bullets are as good or better than the premium bullets costing much more. I'm happy, and will definitely shop here in the future

    Great price Good bullet

    Great price. With shipping worked out to 16.5 cents each. Checked a handful for weight and size very consistent. Ordered to have when my existing stockpile gets depleted, they are tough to find right now, glad I found this company.

    Review by Marty (Posted on 10/22/2020)

    Clean ammo, well made.

    The ammo was just as advertised. All rounds were clean, well assembled, and cycled very cleaning. No feed issues. And a reasonable price. Can't really ask for more, other than a lower price, but the market and materials drives that.

    Very good performing bulk target bullets

    I have purchased a couple cases each of these HAP bullets in 9mm, 45 and 40 caliber. They perform well accuracy wise, I’m getting ¾-1” groups at 25yds out of a Sig P220 and a Wiley Clapp 1911 Government, both with Barsto barrels. I would caution that the jackets are thin or soft as I reloaded some Federal primed brass that had bullet sealant and it caused the cone to deform on the 40 caliber bullets.
