.45 ACP +P Pistol and Handgun Ammo

SKU: 45-230 F.M.J./20

Qty: - +

45 ACP +P

45 ACP +P Ammo - 230 gr. F.M.J.-F.N. (950 fps/M.E. 461 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 design 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.

This is the best penetrating 45 ammo I've ever used. I like making ballistics tests. I compared this ammo to five different others, including another boutique hardball traveling at 1,000 FPS. Because of the bullet shape, the BB round out-penetrated all the others by a solid inch in glossy magazines. This is incredible. It doesn't get any better. Accuracy is on a par with match ammo. I will never use ANY other hardball ammo. By the way, Tim is correct about changing the spring. I put in an 18.5 lb. and use a shock buff on my Kimber target. Perfect functioning.

Great ammo. The accuracy was great at 25 yards. No issues loading and cycling in my HK pistol. I used the ammo on a wild boar hunt with great success. I shot a 180 pound boar at 20 yards and the bullet when clean through and hit both lungs. The boar ran 40 yards and dropped dead.

very impressive penetration 2 shots went through a 5 gal frozen water jug.
recoil is lower than expected and cycled good in my auto pistol.
