Hollow Point

45 Long Colt hollow point ammunition is one of the most effective self-defense loads out there today. 45 Colt may have never been envisioned as a hollow point round, but it has certainly succeeded as one. The hollow cavity in a hollow point allows the round to expand and deform. This expansion and deformity creates a large wound channel throughout a soft target, creating more damage. More importantly when hollow point ammunition expands it rapidly loses speed and slows greatly inside a soft target. This works to prevent the round from over penetrating an attacker and striking someone else.

    Chronographed @ 862 fps from. my Taurus Judge magnum (3-inch cylinder, 3-inch barrel), about 10 feet from the muzzle
    John Thornhill on 20rds - 45 Long Colt Federal Champion 225gr. Semi-Wadcutter Hollow Point Ammo
  • ☆☆☆☆☆
    This shoots so good out of my Smith and Wesson Governor - I was very impressed. Excellent accuracy out to 25 yards which was the extent of the indoor range. Low smoke and manageable recoil for quick follow up shots at least with my Governor. It is in my carry rotation as my last two of six shots in the Governor. I'm buying another box to keep in the truck. Great ammo and fast shipping from ATG.

    Tested on wet newspaper from a 3.75 inch barrel -- this ammo has good penetration and makes a big hole. With the light bullet it does shoot a little low. I also tested it with a 20 inch carbine and a 5 gallon jug of water (type used in a water cooler). The bullet did not penetrate the jug but split it apart lengthwise. Recoil is very mild.
