This round features the 45 ACP’s lighter 185 grain bullet. Expect a fast 995 fps muzzle velocity and flat trajectory because of that. Even at 50 yards this round delivers approximately 345 ft lbs of energy, which is still greater than the minimum typically advised for personal protection.
This round’s JHP bullet is built for terminal expansion. Sierra’s Power Jacket has a tapered profile which helps an auto-loading pistol feed more efficiently. The Power Jacket’s rim wears multiple skives that ensure expansion takes place under a wide range of conditions, as well as following impact at several different angles. This bullet’s lead core is additionally engineered to promote more reliable expansion over a wide range of velocities.
Sierra’s nonmagnetic bullet is precision seated in a new production brass case. Sierra, which is very popular for their match and hunting bullets, spare no time loading their Outdoor Master ammo’s noncorrosive Boxer primers and clean-burning propellant to ensure consistent recoil, aim and ballistic performance.
