A: Thanks for reaching out Frank! It could certainly be done, and you already seem aware of the 45 ACP's limitations for deer hunting considering the short range you're allotting yourself. I personally wouldn't advise a 185 grain bullet for taking medium game. It may prove too light to deliver the penetration depth you'd want for game that size. If your pistol or carbine is rated for +P, then I believe you'll be far better served by Federal's law enforcement grade 45 ACP +P 230gr HST JHP ammunition: https://www.luckygunner.com/45-acp-230-gr-jhp-hst-federal-law-enforcement-50-rounds. Shot placement is still going to count for a whole heckuva lot, but of the options we have in stock I believe this would be your best bet.

A: Thanks for reaching out! I can't fairly promise you when we'll get this ammo back in store, though we certainly intend to stock it again as soon as we're able. Our inventory changes frequently even during this ammo drought, so I hope you'll check back in again soon to see what we can do for you in the 45 ACP department!

A: A great suggestion! A lot of shooters do accept the muzzle velocity written on the box as natural law, omitting that barrel length, the manufacturer of the barrel, humidity, and air pressure all count for a lot as well. If you wouldn't consider it stealing your idea, we may implement that in the future.

A: Hi Rowan, This ammunition is not a +p ammunition.

A: Hello John,
Yes, these 185gr. FTX rounds by Hornady in .45 ACP should function great in your Glock 21. They make excellent defense rounds in .45 ACP and I haven't had any problems myself with them in the same firearm.
