I have used this ammunition since the 90s where it was the issue ammunition of the Police Dept I worked for. It is great ammo, very reliable but the Federal HST is a newer more impressive round but with either I would feel very comfortable using it in a self defense situation.
I have my own range on the property. I shoot at steel targets. The frame is 2in tube steel with the same hinges found on semi trailer doors. The first impact swung the target all the way around and bent the hinge. This was out 20 yards with my trusty old S&W 4506. I never experianced a single malfunction of any kind. Very accurate and yes the recoil is less with the 165 grainer than the 230. Well worth a couple more $$
I have searched for a long time for 45acp ammo that burns clean and decided to give this ammo a try. After that I have not looked back and compare all others to this stuff. I can shoot 30-40 rounds of this ammo and not get the gun as dirty as 5 rounds of other brands. This has been accurate in all of my 45's. It is priced higher than other brands but is well worth it.
I bought this ammo because it's the same weight and velocity as the Federal HST 147 grain hollow point. I figured it would be great practice ammo. Turns out it's every bit as accurate, even more so. Here's something important. I'm using a Smith & Wesson Shield sub-compact 9mm with a 3" barrel. All plus P 124 grain ammo shoots low. This ammo, along with the HST, shoots EXACTLY to point of aim. (the faster and lighter the bullet, the lower it shoots. It has to do with dwell time in the barrel) All ... guns are different. For the Shield, this stuff is TOPS. By the way, this is an excellent carry load for the woods offering good penetration.
This ammo runs great in my g42. Very high quality. I like this and federal hydro shocks.
I feel confidante that if I ever have to use this ammo for self-defense, it will do the job I bought it for.
I bought this as a hot deal. Good ammo went bang in my Glock 17 gen 4. No surprise there that gun will fire anything anyway. I recently bought a Taurus Pt111 millineum G2. The ammo went band in that gun as well. Good ammo for the range. Will buy again especially on a hot deal.
I purchased this from Academy and it is a very good product.
Use 9mm in my PX4C and Shield. Flawless performance, lead-free primer and accuracy. D actually is more accurate than T. Lower recoil benefit and simplified matched rounds. Low flash and very clean. Sounded gimmicky, but this is all I carry for CCDW now. My thinking changed from +P high velocity to standard round lower velocity. Who needs the kick beating you up when practicing 200-400 rounds. Who could ask for more.
I've shot over 400 rounds of this through my FNS9-C with no problems what so ever. It's also the cleanest shooting 9mm round I have ever seen as inside the brass looks like it's never been fired. It's also accurate and the recoil does seem reduced
The item is hard to find, I saw it on Academy's add on line, and was very happy to get it!!
Cycles without any problems in my ruger 380. No failures to fire or any other issues, 100% reliable.
Shoots good with moderate recoil from my Shield. Excellent concept to produce much cheaper training ammo that has the same ballistics as the personal defense ammo which is really expensive to shoot to get proficient. I'll buy more.
I'VE BEEN TESTING THESE AS A POTENTIAL SELF DEFENSE ROUND FROM A GLOCK 23 AND I'LL SAY I'M IMPRESSED. I RAN THEM THRU SOME BALLISTICS GEL AND HAD GOOD RESULTS. THE OFFERED GOOD PENETRATION IN JUST THE GEL AND OPENED AS REQUIRED WHEN SHOT THRU DENIM MATERIAL. SPEED WAS LESS THAN LISTED.
I have Nothing but Admiration for Academy Sports....they made Sure I was Satisfied with Everything.....thanks Again
I BOUGHT THIS WEEK GOT IN 2-3 DAYS....AMMO IS GREAT..CLEAN...WHISH I COULD BUY BULK INSTEAD OF ONLY 20 ROUNDS...USED MY RUGER SUPER BLACKHAWK 7.5 BARREL...HEAVY KICK..USED AT THE RANGE I GO TO...HIGHLY RECOMMEND...
100 rounds fed through my pistol without a hiccup. Cleaned pistol after shooting with little residue/powder found. I will get more for the range.
Item delivered as described and arrived well packaged. The ammo fired without a problem.
Got my wife a 45 colt bought his ammo For price very happy with it
Very accurate and clean burning will buy more price not bad either for the quality.
Bought them online they shot great good recoil characteristics.
Looked everywhere for this ammo, but Academy came through for me!!
I have been using this ammo in my Ruger and Sig Sauer and have been very happy with performance. Academy has good price and free shipping. Can't beat a deal like that!
Good price,plus free shipping, what more bcould you ask for.
I was sceptical at first but i after 200 rounds through my Glock 22c with no fte or ftf i will be buying these from now on. Cheap and effective.
Easy transaction, fast and free shipping. I highly recommend everyone to shop at Academy
Happy I purchased the ammo they are hard to find at that price for so many
I wanted an that the Jackson store did not have in stock. The store crew ordered it on line at about 11:00 am and it arrived at my front door the next day at about 10:00 am.
Accuracy was good, no flash from a stub nose. I am convinced this is the best self defense ammo you can purchase.
