The 45 ACP is already a subsonic cartridge, and Remington’s Subsonic label ammo certainly doesn’t reinvent the wheel in that department. What this cartridge offers that’s special is its bullet: a flat nose enclosed base. No part of the bullet’s core is exposed to hot propellant gasses during ignition, so you can look forward to not having to scrub any lead residue off of your suppressor’s ports or baffles.
This bullet’s flat nose profile won’t deliver terminal expansion. But if your objective is to avoid deafening yourself while you use your handgun during home defense, you’ll still find 230 grains of lead and copper suitable for the job. This bullet transfers more than 320 ft lbs of energy over any distance your home could possibly contain.
Even if it hasn’t got a suppressor, your handgun should have zero difficulty cycling this brass-cased, non-corrosive and clean-burning American-made ammunition.
