45 Super Ammo - 230 gr. J.H.P. @ 1,100 fps/M.E. 618 ft-lbs
20 Round Box

ITEM 45S230

45 Super is externally/dimensionally identical to 45 ACP or 45ACP +P and is designed to be used in 45ACP semi-auto pistols that have been fitted with stronger than normal recoil springs and a shock buffer, plus a couple other modifications. While you can shoot 45 SUPER out of some stock 45ACP +P pistols such as the Glock 21, HK USP, or the full-sized all steel 1911, you will batter your pistol if you do not have them modified to handle the extra pressure and slide velocity of the 45 Super.

To learn about the modifications your 45 ACP pistol needs to reliably and safely fire 45 SUPER, contact Garey Hindman at 936-402-3484. Garey is the foremost authority on 45 Super modifications/conversions for your 45ACP and Garey performs such conversions for a living.

The below velocities were fired from my Colt Gold Cup Govt. Model (5-inch) that was converted by Garey.

➤  1330 fps -- Item # 45S185 - (185gr. Jhp)
➤  1235 fps -- Item # 45S200 - (200gr. Jhp)
➤  1131 fps -- Item # 45S230 - (230gr. Jhp)
➤  1133 fps -- Item # 45S230FMJ - (230gr. FMJ-FLAT NOSE) 
➤  1090 fps -- Item # 45S255 -  (255gr. HARD CAST-FLAT NOSE)

As always with Buffalo Bore Ammunition, we use real-world firearms to give you real-world data and results.

All our 45 Super ammunition is loaded with flash suppressed powders so that if you have to fire in low light (when the criminal element is out) you will not be blinded by your own gunfire at the worst possible moment.

All three of the JHP loads were designed for anti-personnel use and for hunting small big game-like deer. The two solid bullet loads were designed for breaking large bones like a bear's shoulders or skull but will work for anti-personnel use as well if you need to shoot through cover like car doors or stick frame walls.

Just got back from the Range after using this .45 super 230 grain ammo. It was totally controllable with Not much more recoil than the PMC .45 230 grain ball ammo I usually use. It was a joy shooting and takes your regular 45 ACP gun to a totally new level. I was shooting my Springfield Armory 45 with some modifications. I replaced the Main Recoil Spring with a Wollf 24 lb spring, as well as replacing the Hammer Spring with a Wollf 28 lb spring and replaced the Firing Pin Stop with a Square Stop from EGW. I would NOT recommend JUST replacing your Main Recoil Spring to a stiffer one. Over time the gun cannot handle it and it WILL crack the frame down the line as well as having one hell of a sharp recoil. SO, if you are going to Shoot this Ammo. Replace the Main Recoil Spring, the Hammer Spring and go to a Square Firing Pin Stop. You do these THREE modifications with a FULL steal gun and you will REALLY enjoy shooting this ammo, as well as it being totally controllable and the recoil will be totally manageable. By the way, after these modifications. It still shoots my PMC 230 grain hard ball ammo!!!

The advantage of having a modern 45 ACP revolver is the ability to shoot 45 Super in it without modification. I shot these in my Taurus 45 ACP revolver and absolutely love them. They kick a bit more than 45 ACP, but its more of a hard push and I don't seem to get a lot of muzzle flip (maybe the porting on the Taurus actually does help). After shooting these I have switched my HD ammo from 45 ACP to 45 Super.

wow is all I can say got a box of these took them to the range with my new 45 super and everyone thought I was shooting a cannon. very accurate. If your a bad shot the noise might give them a heart attack. LOL

Friends and Customers, 08-18-20


All shooters are being inconvenienced with what is happening to our society and the rush it is causing on ammo supplies. We have LOTS of ammo in stock and are making more at a huge volume on a daily basis. If our web site allows you to order any item, that means it is in stock—WE DO NOT TAKE ORDERS FOR ITEMS WE DO NOT HAVE! So, please do not email and ask if items are in stock. If they aren’t, the shopping cart will not take your order.

We have hundreds of customers to get orders to on a daily basis. In order for us to accomplish this for our customers, we ask the following.

  1. Be sure of what you are ordering. You are going to get what you ordered.

  2. Do not contact us and ask to change an order you’ve already placed. When we manually change orders it requires a lot of time that we do not have during this rush and it keeps us from serving all of our customers. If you’d like to change an order, we can no longer do that till things slow down, so simply place another order for more product, but PLEASE, NO MORE CHANGES after the fact!

  3. We NEVER have and never will take ammo exchanges or returns and then turn around and re-sale that ammo to unsuspecting customers as factory new ammo—this is not safe nor is it fair to customers who are buying what they think is new and safe ammo. No ammo is tamper proof! So please stop asking to exchange or get a refund for ammo you ordered, but have changed your mind about.

  4. Please do not contact us and ask for tracking numbers or “when will my ammo ship”? Our system automatically emails out tracking numbers on the orders we ship each day, however, because these emails are coming from a corporation shopping cart, many of these emails may go to your spam folder……..please look there. If it is not in your spam folder, that means we have not yet shipped. At current order rates, we are shipping within 5-7 business days of the time an internet order is placed. Please sit tight. Your ammo will arrive at the same time if you track it or not and will certainly arrive later if we are swamped answering questions instead of getting orders shipped. When 30-50 people per day send emails asking for tracking information and we have to pull that information up, then type it out and email it, it takes a huge portion of our work day that we should be using to ship those orders to customers in need. Please leave us alone so we can serve all of you. (ship to you) It’s a bit selfish, during times of shortages, when so many folks need to protect their families, to slow us down because you ordered carelessly or want to change your order. Right now, we expect you to do your part to help us all get the ammo we need in our troubled country.

These measures are hopefully temporary and will not be needed for long as we enjoy the interaction with our customers, so please, for the time being, be mindful of all those others who are also trying to get ammo during what I think is a societal meltdown/emergency. Hopefully, we can serve you all. We want you and your families to be armed and safe and we wish you the best during these trying times. My biggest concern is that things will worsen yet more, for a while. Until things straighten out in our government and society, we will have to streamline our customer service in order to serve all customers. Thank you for your understanding.

Good shooting and God bless,

Tim Sundles
