Since its introduction in 1908, the .45 Automatic Colt Pistol Cartridge has been one of America’s favored handgun cartridge for target shooting, competitions, and of course, personal defense. The slow, heavy round tends not to over penetrate, transferring all of its ballistic energy into what it hits and staying there. Ideal for home defense as well as self-protection on the trail or in the streets. As a frangible cartridge, those benefits are all transferred to a bullet that not only will not over penetrate but also not ricochet. The copper matrix 135 grain bullet by RUAG can leave the muzzle at up to 1157 feet per second with 372 foot-pounds of energy. This is a higher performing cartridge than standard ball, but is ideal for indoor ranges: no lead and the bullet disintegrates on contact.
RUAG Group is dedicated to both aerospace products as well as small arms ammunition manufacture. With a definitive leaning towards technologically enhanced bullets, the company is one of the most reliable makers of non-toxic frangible, or NTF, ammunition and is trusted by security details all over the world.
