    230 grain .45 ACP is so slow, once the round detonates in the chamber, the season's change before the round leaves the muzzle! :tongueout: What a stupid round! 230 grain .45 is for novices, armchair commandos and those that will be the first to get dropped in a gun battle.

    This is a funny video and shows the pathetic BB gun level penetration of the .45 "Always Can't Penetrate."

  3. And I've seen tests where the .45 out-penetrated the .40 in these stupid phone book tests. But it's obvious you are here to troll and stir the pot. Have fun with that.

    And for your information, most 180 gr. .40 rounds leave the barrel at about 1000 fps. 185 gr. .45 rounds leave the barrel at about 1050-1150 fps. But of course, a smaller, slower, lighter round is bound to be more effective.

    I'm well aware of standard as well as +p loading velocities and their respective grain weights. :tongueout:

    .45 ACP

    165 gr 1,250 fps
    185 gr 1,000 to 1,200 fps
    200 gr 1,000 to 1,150 fps
    230 gr 800 fps to 1,050 fps

    These are approximates and there are of course slower loadings available, especially in that worthless 230 grain weight.

    Just for you :crying:WinterWhiner. Congratulations! :tongueout::whistling::wavey::cool::supergrin:

    The only autoloader pistol calibers that I prefer .45 "Always Can't Penetrate" over are as follows;

    .22 LR,MAG,Short
    .25 ACP
    .32 ACP
    .380 ACP/ 9mm Kurtz

  8. If this were a true statement, then it would be another example of morons hiring morons. You are no LEO, not with your attitutde & lack of general respect for those that know more than you. Good try though. I'll bet you've slain 100s of large animals to prove your point as well huh? Yeah, thought so. Believe what you like, vel alone doesn't kill anything in handguns. Get out of the basement, go shoot something besides wood boards & dry books, just another example of what you don't know about terminal ballistics.:whistling:

    I think it's obvious he's trolling here.

    I believe there was another that had an axe to grind with the .45 acp too before he was banned. :dunno: Maybe it's the same guy?
     
  10. Just get one of each and stop bickering I say :)

    Sometimes I'm in a .45 (G21) mood. Sometimes I am in a 9mm mood.
    Once a decade I'm in a .40 SW mood. I stick with HST in all however.
     
  11. Yep. Just about everything he says is pointless or off the mark. Time to stop feeding the troll.

    I'm 95% sure you are a super troll looking to start battles for your own amusement and 5% think you might really be this stupid and believe what you post. Either way you are kind of amusing in a Gunkid kind of way:supergrin:

    I have a sneaky suspicion this guy could be Gunkid back once again with another new name. I need to what for some more post and check the Survival forum to see if this guy posted crazy stuff over there. Game on Sir:cool:

    Aww! Did I hurt your wittle feelings haha! Still doesn't change the fact that the 230 grain .45 ACP round has abysmal hard barrier penetration, and a trajectory similar to a three pointer at a special ed elementary school Basket Ball game! :tongueout::rofl::wavey:

    Where are these mysterious, and delusional videos of .45 ACP penetrating better than 9mm and .40 through phonebooks that you mentioned WinterWhiner :crying:? Are they in La La land, along with .45 ACP 230 grain being an actually decent round? :rofl::tongueout::whistling::wavey:

    M&P and WinterWhiner, you two are obviously ballistics novices. I will allow you to continue shooting your subsonic, slingshot, inaccurate, poorly-penetrating rounds, while I enjoy the satisfaction of placing pinpoint accurate shots on target with laser-like precision and superior marksmanship!
