Developed in 1908 and adopted by the US military in 1911, the .45 Automatic Colt Pistol cartridge by John Browning was meant to be the replacement for the .45 Long Colt in stopping power but capable of being fired from a semiautomatic firearm – which was all the rage at the start of the 20th century. Since then, it has become an acceptable bullet not only for recreational shooting but also for personal defense, prized for its large bore diameter and its tendency to not over penetrate or wildly ricochet – thanks to its relatively low velocity. The 230 grain full metal jacketed round by Federal exits the muzzle at 890 feet per second with 404 foot pounds of energy. It is one of the most popular target shooting and training brands in the US today – and by virtue of the caliber’s characteristics an acceptable choice for personal defense where expanding bullets are prohibited. This half case lot is perfect for keeping on hand for any purpose.

Federal’s American Eagle is the company’s economical offering for keeping skills honed without burning through “premium” bullets on paper targets. Brass cased with boxer primers, American Eagle also offers further opportunities for frugal shooters with access to reloading presses.
