The 45 ACP is one of the most successful rounds in the modern age. Invented in 1906 and chambered for the Colt M1911A, this round has gone on to be recognized as one of the most effective self defense rounds on the market. Used through multiple wars and by gun owners across America, this round has proven its efficacy and earned its place at the top.
If you are looking for a great self defense round, you can't do better than a Fiocchi and Hornady fusion. With these Fiocchi loaded, Hornady bullets, you get the quality of Fiocchi with the effectiveness of Hornady's XTP, jacketed hollow point rounds. Designed to have the best accuracy, expansion, and stopping power possible, these XTP, or Extreme Terminal Performance, rounds will defend you superbly. In addition, these rounds are boxer primed and brass cased, giving you the opportunity to reload.
How does Fiocchi 230 Grain compare to other .45 ACP (Auto) self-defense loads? We conducted some tests with Clear Ballistics synthetic gelatin to find out. Following the FBI’s test protocol, we fired five rounds into the gel with a barrier of heavy clothing. We used a Kahr CW45 because the short barrel is similar to the type of compact handguns that are most likely to be carried concealed. Images of the fired bullets suspended in the gelatin are in the graphic above.
We measured the penetration depth of each bullet and then recovered them from the gel to measure the expanded diameter. You can find all of that data in the chart at the bottom of this page. Photos of the recovered bullets are below on the left and a slow motion video of the first bullet fired into the gel is down on the right.
