1,100 fps/M.E. 618 ft-lbs
20 Round Box

ITEM 45S230 F.M.J.

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 of 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 45 ACP 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.

1,330 fps -- Item # 45S185 - (185gr. Jhp)
1,235 fps -- Item # 45S200 - (200gr. Jhp)
1,131 fps -- Item # 45S230 - (230gr. Jhp)
1,133 fps -- Item # 45S230FMJ - (230gr. FMJ-FLAT NOSE) 
1,090 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.

I shot these through a G21SF that was modified to safely use .45 Super ammunition. As I did on all of the 45 Super ammunition I chronographed them. Velocity was spot on and as with the other BB 45 Super ammo the extreme spread was single digit. Because of the FMJ type bullet hunting applications with this load are limited. I would however not have a bit of problem carrying these for bear protection. Accuracy was very good with 40 yard groups right at 2.0". Great ammunition.

Great ammunition, never a misfeed and very clean--shoot it in my 45 Super Springfield Long Slide (6" barrel). Glad this isn't in a short ACP, for this ammo 'Speaks with authority.'
