This Punch round by Federal beats even a martial arts prodigy’s best uppercut. Its 230 grain bullet is the classic weight for the 45 ACP and accordingly behaves just how a particular 1911 prefers it to. This is a jacketed hollow point bullet, designed to quickly fan out immediately following penetration to transfer incapacitating energy while simultaneously preventing overpenetration. The precision skives Federal engineered into this bullet’s jacket combined with its soft lead core promote an effective balance of deep penetration and wide terminal expansion.
Its bullet isn’t this round’s only feature that lets it perform so reliably. Federal’s non-corrosive primer is sealed to safeguard the round against moisture, and their propellant charge is carefully weighed and formulated to prevent any surprises after a trigger pull. This round’s new brass casing is nickel plated, which enhances its lubricity for less friction during feeding and extraction. That helps to prevent a jam that could compromise your ability to defend yourself, and nickel is further corrosion resistant and easier to see in poor lighting.
These 20 rounds are all you need to load up a couple mags in preparation for the worst. You could also invest half of them at the range so you can better understand exactly how your carry weapon is going to perform when you need it. The choice is yours, and we know you will make a good choice because you’ve already demonstrated that you have excellent taste in websites.
