.45 ACP +P Pistol and Handgun Ammo

SKU: 45-185/20

Qty: - +

45 ACP +P

45 ACP +P Ammo - 185 gr. J.H.P. (1,150 fps/M.E. 543 ft. lbs.)
20 Round Box

45ACP+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)

➤  1180 fps -- 45185-----------(185gr. Jhp)
➤  1078 fps -- 45200-----------(200gr. Jhp)
➤    979 fps -- 45230-----------(230gr. Jhp)
➤    981 fps -- 45230FMJ-----(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.

Great ammo I will use this load and the 230 fmj fn in both my 1911a1 and my XD .45 Service.
This stuff is truly awesome and did not cause any undue recoil or discomfort when fired.
The results when tested on water jugs was quite compelling and can be seen on youtube.
I would recommend this for anyone who wants to carry real p ammo for occasional use.
Accuracy was ok but not fully tested plenty for carry use.

I purchased this ammo along with 4 other factory loads to determine the best .45 ACP carry ammunition.
Fired from a 3" Kimber Ultra Raptor the load chronographed as follows:
Max. 1049 FPS, Avg. 1011 FPS, Min. 974 FPS. Standard Deviation was 75 with an Extreme Spread of 23.
Groups were a sliver over 2" at 25 yds!
This ammo was the winner and I will be carrying this henceforth. Runs as advertised, you can't go wrong. A definite 5 of 5 stars, buy with confidence.
