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

This high-performance self-defense 45 ACP ammunition from Federal offers consistent expansion and optimum penetration. This is the duty load of choice for law enforcement officers across the country. Factory fresh and non-corrosive, each cartridge features a specially designed HST hollow point projectile. Weighing in at 230 grains, these hollow points will not plug, even when passing through tough barriers. The tough copper jacket and lead-alloy core hold together to provide nearly 100 percent weight retention, even through the toughest materials. The result is superior terminal performance perfect for both law enforcement and civilian personal defense.



Since the company opened in 1922, Federal Premium has grown into one of the largest and most-respected ammunition manufacturers in the world. Delivering consistent quality for nearly a century, Federal Premium lives up to its reputation with this LE Tactical HST line. This package contains 50 rounds of Federal LE Tactical .45 ACP (Auto) ammunition.



Each round produces a consistent muzzle velocity of 890 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 404 foot pounds. These loads feature a round nose profile and nickel-plated brass casings, providing smooth and reliable feeding and function. When paired with Federal Premium’s unique clean-burning primers, you get the ultimate in reliable function.


Ballistic Gel Testing

 

In hopes of giving ourselves and our customers a better idea how this 45 ACP (Auto) self-defense ammo would perform if called upon in a self-defense scenario, we tested dozens of the best selling hollow points on the market.

We fired five rounds of this Federal Ammunition 45 ACP (Auto) ammo through a cloth barrier into Clear Ballistics calibrated synthetic gelatin and recorded the results. For these tests, we used a Ruger SR45 with a 4.5-inch barrel. In the photos, graphics and video on this page, you can see specifically how the Federal Ammunition ammo performed and how it sticks up with the rest of the 45 ACP (Auto) ammo we have tested so far.

    I have been very impressed w/ this ammo in my XDS's. This ammo runs over my chronograph in my 3.3" and 4.0" for an average of 795 FPS and 847 FPS for 3 shots each and expanded to approx..88". Accuracy has been around an inch at 21 feet for 3 shots. This ammo is my pick for conceal carry. Buy some and try it and see what you think. Good shooting. Cman

    I've been using this ammo out of a Beretta CX4 carbine, good velocity, excellent accuracy and devastating damage to the 4 hogs I've shot. The hogs were all shot at 25 to 50 yards, the bullet exited on 2 out of 4 and left a large easy to follow blood trail. None of the hogs went more than 50 yards from where they were hit. Very consistent velocity from a CX4 and a 1911.

    The only 45 ammo I carry. Cycles perfectly through my Glock 21 and Springfield XDs.

    First started buying this from Ammunition To Go back in 2008! Feeds smooth for a hollowpoint and excellent accuracy. I won't use anything else for carry ammo!

    This is a top pick for .45 owners. It has performed perfect in water jug testing after 4 layers of denim. This ammo expands well and holds together.

    Excellent!!!!! I have taken down one deer and two hogs with this ammo. Definitely stoppers. All three stopped in their tracks. The wound cavities were impressive to say the least. Will buy again and again.

    With expansion coming out the size of a quarter, you can't get a nicer man stopper than this. A.T.G. is the best place to buy it. My whole order was on backorder, and it still showed up at my door faster than anyone else would with in stock items.
