The 45 Auto, also known as ACP, is a classic American pistol round that has a rich history and is renowned for its stopping power. It was designed by John Moses Browning in 1904 and was adopted by the U.S. Military in 1911 for use in the iconic U.S. M1911 pistol. This combination of caliber and pistol has been in service for a remarkably long time.
HOP’s 45 Auto JHP ammunition is created with a deep understanding of this history, and it is designed to maintain the same renowned stopping power. The 230gr JHP option provides a heavier projectile than the 185gr JHP option.
As a result, it has a slightly slower velocity of 876 FPS, but it boasts greater downrange energy of 392 ft/lbs.
