1900 fps, 78 gr .45 variant is 2200 fps from a carbine barrel. simple blowback carbine, take note. So the pressures can't be very high.

Melvin, I can well imagine that this "wonder ammo" is a little hard on the wallet. In the real world you can't "Buy points" to stay alive. I stick to the ammo that I shoot in practice and in competition, thank you.

I'll keep this stuff in mind if the cast of Veggie Tales ever tried to overthrow the country.🙄

I can build 1,000 rds of .45 acp, that would work for self defence in a WROL scenario for $200 (Cdn). How much is this for a box of 25?

the 50 gr 9mm version is AP from a pistol 1900 fps
Roughly 400 ft/lbs, from a 1911-size gun. Good, but not anything earth-shattering.


78 gr .45 variant is 2200 fps from a carbine barrel.
That's good power, but since we're talking about a carbine, it's (again) not anything groundbreaking or earth-shattering. It's less than a typical .30 carbine load (that you so often scorn), for that matter. Even some 9mm loads hit 700 ft/lbs from a carbine, and I know that at least one substantially exceeds it.

The fact that it hits that power level from a carbine says more about what a carbine-length barrel can do for a load, than it does about the load itself. I've praised handgun-caliber carbines for years now, and you've always insulted them. Good to see you finally coming around & realizing what they're really capable of.

????

Maximum pressure for this load is 23k PSI, just as it is for any .45acp +P load. Pressure limits are mandated and limited by industry standards that all manufacturers adhere to. They are not suggestions and they're not up for negotiation. They are written and specific.
