Ever since its development in 1908 and adoption by the US Army in 1911, the .45 Automatic Colt Pistol cartridge has become an iconic part of American military history. While considered old and slow by many “youngins” these days, the cartridge’s characteristics have long lent it to being a reliable, easy shooting round that readily transfers its kinetic energy into the target without passing through and needlessly causing unintentional issues down range. For use in the equally iconic Colt Model 1911 service pistols, there really is no better experiential substitute. Such is the intention behind Winchester’s “Service Grade” ammunition, delivered in non-descript, GI bland brown boxes. The full metal jacketed, 230 grain bullet has a muzzle velocity of 865 feet per second with 382 foot pounds of energy. This is a training round equally suitable for modern firearms as well as grampappy’s old service 1911 brought home from the service.

While Winchester branding may be iconic with the bucking horse and cowboy, this Service Grade branding is no less exciting despite its lack of flare. This is because Winchester was a primary ammo supplier to US forces in World War II and Korea and was issued in similarly lackluster boxes: service is in the action, not the branding, and any patriot, or 1911 collector, feels just as much if not more chills, handling a box of these cartridges.
