For 105 years, the 45 ACP has been showing the world just how fantastic it is. Although it was invented about 5 years before it was used, that did not impact its popularity. As one of the most popular handgun rounds in the world, the 45 ACP has been used successfully through multiple wars and for self defense with its weildability, massive stopping power, and reliability.
Federal Premium has been around for almost as long as the 45 ACP, providing the ammo world with their quality ammo, and their Hydra-Shok ammo is one of the most effective self defense rounds you can buy. Due to Federal's prowess in designing this round, it has great expansion, high energy output, and high accuracy, the most important things you need in a self defense round.
With these 230 grain, Hydra-Shok, jacketed hollow point rounds, you can rest assured that any attacker will be stopped. Also, these 500 rounds are reloadable, helping you use them twice over for added value. Don't miss out on this great deal!
For the past few decades, gelatin testing has been one of the primary tools used by ballistics experts to attempt to predict the real world performance of self-defense ammunition. Following the protocol first established by the FBI, we fired five rounds of Federal 230 Grain into Clear Ballistics synthetic gelatin. Each round was fired from a Kahr CW45 pistol from 10 feet away with a four-layer barrier of heavy fabric placed in front of the gelatin to simulate an attacker wearing thick clothing.
The data we gathered for penetration depth, expanded diameter, and bullet velocity is all in the chart below. The diagrams at the bottom of the page should give you an idea of how this load compares to other .45 ACP (Auto) loads. Photos of the expanded bullets that were retrieved from the gel are in the slide show below on the left. On the right is a slow motion video that shows the first of the five bullets entering the gelatin block at approximately 1/300th the speed of real time.
Find out more about ballistic gel testing along the results of our gel tests from more than 150 other self-defense loads on Lucky Gunner Labs.
