ITEM 45-255

45 ACP +P ammo is externally/dimensionally identical to 45 ACP ammo and can be fired in any 45 ACP firearm that is in normal operating condition. However, the greater pressures and power of the +P ammo will give you greater slide velocity and if you are going to shoot more than a box or two of +P ammo, you should consider replacing your recoil spring with a Wolf Spring that gives roughly 4 to 6 lbs more spring weight than factory stock springs. A shock buffer might also be a good addition although it is not too necessary if you use the stronger spring.

The below velocities were fired from my personal Colt Gold Cup 1911 (5-inch)

➤   1,180 fps 45185 -- (185gr. Jhp)
➤  1,078 fps 45200 -- (200gr. Jhp)
➤      979 fps 45230 -- (230gr. Jhp)
➤      981 fps 45230 FMJ -- (230gr. Fmj-FLAT NOSE)
➤      960 fps 45255 -- (255gr. HARD CAST-FLAT NOSE)

As always, with Buffalo Bore Ammunition, we use real world firearms to give real-world data and results. Laboratory test barrels tell you little about what kind of speed you can expect from your stock firearm.

All our 45 ACP+P loads utilize flash suppressed powders so that you will not be blinded by your own gunfire should you need to fire in the dark when the criminal element is at work.

The three JHP loads are designed for defense against humans, while the two non-expanding loads are designed to shoot through large shoulder bones or the skull on a black bear. These non-expanding bullets also work well if you need to shoot through cover like car doors or stick frame walls.

I shoot sometimes up in Wisconsin. I enjoy the outdoors but Bears are in abundance. I have chosen a HiPoint .45 Carbine and pistol as my outdoors protection. I use shoot star point 200 grain for range use, but this is my one and only load for protection. It is massive overkill for human assailants and will blow through an attacker and go onward. This ideally an outdoors round for protection from large predators. For urban use, I suggest the use of the 9mm 147 grain in your mags, further down as a need to shoot through cover may happen.
