45 ACP - 230 Grain JHP - Armscor USA - 20 Rounds
The age of the “Wonder Nines” notwithstanding, there is something about .45 Auto Colt Pistol ammunition that holds on to the minds and heartstrings of many enthusiasts. Several somethings, actually: besides its venerable service history, the cartridge’s slower velocity guarantees both accuracy and transferal of energy into the target. This makes it a beloved choice of target competitors as well as being an ideal option for defensive ownership. When the caliber’s inherent characteristics are combined with defense specific bullet types the results are a hard hitting round that will not over penetrate the target or whatever is behind. The 230 grain jacketed hollow point bullet by Armscor has a muzzle velocity of 830 feet per second with 352 foot pounds of energy. This is a personal defense round designed for concealed carry and home protection.
Now proudly made in the USA, ammunition by the Philippine based company Armscor offers affordable purpose specific ammunition along with their range and training products. With its reputation for making affordable and reliable 1911 pistol clones, it is not surprising they would spend considerable energy on making a good cartridge in support. Boxer primed cases loaded with non-corrosive powder and primers and with industry proven reliable bullet types, their personal defense ammo delivers reliable results both to and within the target.
