.45 ACP Ammunition

 

Those familiar with John Moses Browning are very likely familiar with his work, which includes the M1911 pistol, the M1918 Browning Automatic Rifle and the M2 Browning machine gun. In addition to a multitude of firearms, Browning was also responsible for the design of several firearm cartridges. One of those cartridges was the now wildly popular .45 ACP. After the Philippine-American War, General John T. Thompson, who would later garner fame for his design of the Thompson submachine gun, insisted on a more powerful pistol cartridge after the abysmal performance of the .38 Long Colt. It was the Thompson-LaGarde Tests of 1904 that led the U.S. Army and the U.S. Cavalry to seek out a .45-caliber cartridge. At the time, Browning was working with Colt's Manufacturing Company on a .41-caliber cartridge. The U.S. Cavalry came calling, which led Browning to make several modifications and, well, the rest is history.

 

Today, the .45 ACP cartridge remains a popular choice for the military, law enforcement agencies and civilians due to its accuracy, moderate recoil and superior stopping power. These characteristics also make it one of most popular choices for personal protection and self-defense, especially hollow point versions. Hollow point versions of the .45 ACP cartridge feature a hollowed-out tip that is designed to expand upon impact in order to maximize tissue damage and control penetration, which makes them very attractive to law enforcement officers.
