45 ACP is an effective self-defense pistol cartridge that combines accuracy as well as stopping power for use against human targets, has reasonably low muzzle blast and flash, and produces a manageable recoil in larger handguns. The standard military issue 45 ACP cartridge contains a 230-grain bullet that travels at approximately 830 fps when fired from a government issued 1911 pistol, and approximately 950 feet per second fired from a Thompson submachine gun. There are various specialty rounds of varying weights and performance levels as well.
The FMJ 45 ACP cartridge has a well know effectiveness against human targets because of its heavy mass. It has the capacity to penetrate tissue very deeply, and damage the nervous system and internal organs. The large 11.5mm diameter wound it creates is a more substantial permanent wound channel versus smaller calibers, which can lower blood pressure quickly if critical organs are hit. This is amplified and even more effective when using hollow point versions of the round.
