This 45 ACP cartridge features a ball standard round’s 230 grain projectile. With its 830 fps muzzle velocity it’s a touch faster than the classic 45, but that just makes its trajectory ever so slightly flatter. As an FMJ projectile, this bullet can’t boast any expanding terminal performance. What it has got is an economical design, the ability to feed easily, and a streamlined, accurate profile.
This cartridge has a sparkling new brass shell casing, with concentric walls and a precisely cut extractor groove. Federal’s brass has all the elasticity that both clean shooting and reloadability demand. This round’s propellant also burns clean, and its primer is both non-corrosive and responsive.
