Heidi At Lucky Gunner ( Mon, 30 Jul 2012 12:08:21 +0000 ) : Good call. This one of the best .45 ACP hollow point personal defense rounds you can buy.
Harry King ( Sat, 15 Dec 2012 12:34:23 +0000 ) : I love this round, as does my 1911`s and glock.Unfortunately Federal has discontinued this fine round.LuckyGunner has done a great job for me and I will continue to give them my business.
Heidi At Lucky Gunner ( Mon, 17 Dec 2012 14:06:09 +0000 ) : As Federal phases out the "Hi-Shok" line of .45 ACP jacketed hollow point rounds, you will begin to see more Federal "Personal Defense JHP", "Premium Personal Defense Hydra Shok JHP" and "Guard Dog JHP" rounds featured.
MaryLu Duffy ( Wed, 22 May 2013 22:59:02 +0000 ) : ran 150 rnds thru my new Kimber Super Carry Pro. Respectable recoil, but not overpowering. VERY clean burning. No failures even in timed shooting. Ran a snake thru barrel afterwards with little or no residue in the barrel. Service from Lucky Gunner was 1st class. Very quick response/delivery to orders.

Q: I have been wondering about this for a while and seek some expert advice- my question is about magazine/clip storage. Here goes: Is it bad to keep my extra magazines loaded to full capacity? For example: I keep my Glock 21 Magazines fully loaded with 13 rounds of Federal 230 Grain HI-SHOK in them at all times. I also keep my Kimber compact 1911 Ultra Crimson Carry's Kimber Pro Tac Mags and my Wilson Combat 1911 Magazines for the same Kimber loaded to full capacity at all times. I feel like it should be fine to keep them loaded up and ready to go in case I were to ever need to use them I know they are ready to go. After all the magazines for the Glock cost $40+ each and the Kimber's compact 1911 magazines were $30+ each- I would think this would be ok because they are some of the best quality magazines money can buy and they should be able to handle being loaded considering that is their purpose and I would hate to be caught off guard in a life or death situation trying to load magazines in the dark or while being shot at, God Forbid.

Posted On: 6/9/13 By: kxdan01

A: This has been a very popular question among shooters who frequent the range, maintain a decent amount of magazines, or carry without cycling rounds through their magazine other than testing purposes. Given the tests we have performed along with some research regarding factory magazines and other reputable aftermarket manufacturers, our consensus is: The storage of your loaded magazine will not have an influence on your springs any more or any less than storing your magazine without any rounds. Some shooters will prefer to load their magazines to full capacity, then take 1 round off the top. This will allow the magazine release to capture the magazine completely when the topmost round is pressed against the side. If you are using your magazines on a regular basis, malfunctions will usually be present if the springs are starting to wear out. Though this should not be expected with higher quality mags (Glock, Sig, Springfield, Kimber, CMC, WC, etc) until they have been cycled many, many countless times. Most likely this would only be experienced among shooters who frequently shoot on a weekly basis or more, over a long period of time. With all the stretching and compressing a magazine experiences throughout its life, this exercise is what will consume the life of the spring, rather than being stored in a compressed or non compressed condition. There are also "extra pressure" aftermarket springs available to take advantage of, though this would be an optional upgrade. As you have experienced with your shotgun from being loaded many years, I would expect no less than it to function flawlessly from continued storage with rounds in the tube. Given your setup and situation, I would find little to nothing being in need of change. I would recommend using factory magazines or those of high quality if reliability is of utmost importance, perhaps saving other surplus or "cheap" magazines for range or practice. I hope this information will help you in your decision for future carrying or storage applications. Eric
Q: I just bought a s w govoner. what do you think is the better round for personal defense ..410 shot shell, 45 long colt or the 45 acp and what brand is the best.

Posted On: 1/28/13 By: Bill

A: While it mostly depends on what the shooter is comfortable with using, and the defense application, either the 410 or Long Colt in a jacketed hollow point is preferred. The 45 ACP round will only chamber in a semi auto pistol, unless modifications are done to the revolver, such as a moon clip. This is usually not desired as accuracy and performance will be reduced as the revolver has been designed for a different caliber.

45 ACP - 230 gr JHP Hi-Shok Review by Bill E. Klub
Performance

Great ammo for the price. Shot 1/2 and stored the other. This is a real knock-down round, but I am still torn between the HP and FMJ in this caliber and bullet weight. Unless the HP ammo is hypersonic, it does not always deform to specification. But, when you get hit with 230 grains at under 50, what's the difference, because somebody's not walking away!

Superb Service from Lucky Gunner, Good Value on the Ammo Review by SCPistolero

One day delivery. You can't beat that service. Bravo, Lucky Gunner, I'll be doing business with you again soon. As for the ammo, I haven't fired it yet. But I do know there are better defense rounds out there based on the ballistic gel tests that I've seen on this ammo.

OTOH, Federal's quality manufacturing and this ammo's price per round in a 50 round box make it a good all around value for dedicated SD ammo. I expect no problems with any of my firearms using it. I probably got two of the last few boxes left, cause its now sold out, so there you go,

Thanks for great customer service and the real-time ammo tracking. (Posted on 4/13/13)

I bought a case of 1000 of these and a1000 round case of the Blazer 230 Grain .45 ACP rounds as 2 seperate orders and both were in my possession in 2 business day-best service ever!!! Both rounds work accurately and flawlessly in my Kimber Ultra Crimson Carry 2 and they will also be used with my Glock .45 ACP Pistol. I'll be using them in a Glock 30 as well. I consolidated my handguns down to what I needed and I think the Kimber UC2 is perfect for daily concealed carry, the G21 is a perfect full size pistol and the Glock 30 is a perfect backup gun to carry with the G21 because of its smaller sub-compact size (but not as small and easy to carry/conceal as the Kimber UC 2) and if the ***t hits the fan the larger Glock 21 magazines fit smaller Glock 30 frame- you gotta love the interchangeably of the Glock magazines! And I love the fact that all 3 great pistols shoot the same tried and true, reliable and hard hitting .45 ACP Round and I've only got to worry about keeping one round in stock instead of having to keep up with 9mm, .40, .357. and .45 like I used to, it just makes more sense as far as convenience and economic reasons especially with bullet shortages such as they are anymore. I know 9mn and .40 are great rounds and cheaper traditionally but they're not really that much cheaper anymore but the popularity of those rounds makes them even harder to find these days but Lucky Gunner seems to always have the trusted .45 ACP in stock. I mean no disrespect to the 9mm and .40 S&W as I've owned then both numerous times over but for now I'll stick with the good old .45 ACP, IF AMMO PRICES AND AVAILABILITY EVER GET BACK TO WHERE THEY WERE A SHORT WHILE BACK I MAY ADD A FEW 9's AND .40's BACK TO MY HANDGUN COLLECTION. THESE ARE JUST MY PERSONAL OPINIONS SO PLEASE DON'T BE OFFENDED GUYS. GOD BLESS AND MAY HE KEEP US SAFE AND KEEP US FROM HAVING TO PUT OUR ARSENALS TO USE. (Posted on 2/25/13)

Fired several into a wood block and they came out looking knarly.
