If you’ve ever been asked why you own a .45 ACP and responded “Because they don’t make a .46” you’re not alone. Although the .45 ACP has a dedicated following there are also those who cannot understand the draw of the brawny round, but the truth is there are quite a few reasons why it’s worth owning. For one thing, it’s really the only handgun caliber outside the magnum category that’s capable of creating hydrostatic shock with just a target round. In addition to that it delivers a hefty impact and creates quite a wound cavity with significantly less felt recoil than most people expect and also with less muzzle flash and flip. For such a big cartridge it’s really quite manageable; if you’ve never tried a .45 ACP, you’re missing out.
These particular .45 ACP rounds are made by PMC, a company with almost 100 years of experience manufacturing ammunition. PMC works by the motto “Creating a legend…one shooter at a time” and they hope to help shooters build their skills by supplying them with quality ammunition. The company got its start supplying everything from small arms cartridges to Howitzer rounds to the South Korean military and simply selling excess ammunition. But because their ammunition is made to higher military standards for performance and reliability it gained quite a few fans in a short period of time, and today they distribute their products all around the globe.
At 185 grain these are medium-weight rounds capable of moving down-range quickly while still delivering a solid punch on impact. They’re Jacketed Hollow Points, delivering controlled expansion on impact, which means greater penetration and a larger, more devastating wound cavity. Jackets also significantly cut down on lead fouling in your gun’s barrel. Each of these rounds has a muzzle velocity of 900 feet per second and muzzle energy of 333 foot-pounds. This ammunition is meant for self-defense and is manufactured in PMC’s factories in Angang and Dongrae, South Korea. There are 50 defense rounds in this box, and because it’s produced in fresh brass cases with boxer primer, it can be reloaded, making this an even greater deal. Place your order now to keep your .45 ACP loaded and ready to protect not only yourself but those you love.
