Black Hills Ammunition 230 Grain Jacketed Hollow-Point (JHP) Ammo Details

Black Hills Ammunition is appropriately headquartered in South Dakota, where they make ammo which they regularly supply to prestigious clients including all branches of the United States Armed Forces and firearm manufacturers such as Smith & Wesson, Heckler and Koch, and Browning. These operations have got the wherewithal to purchase ammo from any source that they like, but Black Hills’ total reverence for quality keeps on earning their repeated business.

The 45 has been known to come in handy for personal defense now and then -- if you carry one yourself, then you’ll value this personal defense round tremendously. Its bullet’s hard jacket assures smooth feeding and penetration upon impact, and its hollow point will create a deep and lethal wound cavity which is bound to neutralize a threat effectively. With these 20 rounds, you’ll be able to prepare most any magazine for service, and their brass casings mean you can enjoy them after making them go bang, too.
