.45 acp ammo for sale – bulk .45 acp ammo – .45 acp ammo in stock – .45 acp ammo near me – .45 acp ammo for deer hunting

As a hunting cartridge, the .45 ACP is, well, less than ideal, yet I know those who have used it successfully for deer-sized game at close ranges. In my personal opinion, there are better choices for a hunting handgun cartridge.

The .45 ACP has long been a military darling—though in recent years it was replaced by the 9mm Parabellum as the Army’s issued sidearm—and the debates continue regarding the 9mm/.40 S&W/.45 ACP conundrum. I’ve long been a heavy bullet fan, especially when it comes to handguns, and I believe that all things being equal, if a shooter can effectively handle the .45 ACP, he or she would be well-served by carrying one.

Why is the .45 ACP So Popular?

The .45 ACP grew in popularity outside of the Armed Forces due to its ability to adapt to a variety of shooting applications, including sport shooting, law enforcement, and self defense. Both target shooters and backyard shooters appreciate the .45 ACP for its accuracy, mild recoil, and heavy bullet.

Law enforcement agencies have chosen the .45 ACP for its proven ability to stop dangerous aggressors. Units such as the FBI’s Hostage Rescue Team and the Los Angeles Police Department SWAT, as well as other specialized units, carry firearms chambered in the .45 Auto.

The U.S. military officially replaced the .45 ACP with the 9mm in 1985, though it continues to have pockets of dedicated users in the service. Operators of the Marine Expeditionary Units, Delta Force and others within the purview of the United States Special Operations Command have the option of using pistols chambered in the .45 ACP.

As a self-defense weapon, in its basic full metal jacket (FMJ) cartridge, the non-expanding .45 Auto is heavy and penetrates deep. The large bullet diameter creates a significant wound, which can damage the central nervous system, circulatory system, and critical organs. Those looking for personal protection may also opt for specialty configurations from a variety of ammunition manufacturers including Hornady, Federal, and Magtech.

Another reason that contributes to the .45 Auto’s popularity is its affordability.
