  • Information
Buffalo Bore Anti-Personnel ammunition is loaded with the highest quality components to produce great accuracy and performance. This load was designed for use in any firearm chambered in 45 Colt. This ammunition is new production, non-corrosive, in boxer primed, reloadable brass cases.

Owner of Buffalo Bore Tim Sundles on Anti-Personnel 45 Colt Ammunition:

This load is designed to cause disabling terminal effect, combined with the penetration required to cause fast incapacitation of targets from any angle. The big flat wad cutter nose crushes living tissue as it passes through, unlike mushroomed bullets that are slightly rounded on the nose and tend to slip and slide through living material. The crushing action of the flat nose keeps penetration straight and thus deep. The hard cast construction will not deform on flesh and bone at these velocities so the nose profile remains constant along with bullet path and terminal damage. Full wad cutter profiles in large calibers (like .45 and .44) hit like a truck and do massive permanent damage. Noted NYPD stake out officer and gun fighter Jim Cirillo used full wad cutters in his 38 SPL revolvers because they incapacitated his targets with certainty.

Expect about 24 inches of straight-line penetration with this load.

We test our ammunition in real world over-the-counter firearms to establish our published velocities so that our customers can know what this ammunition is doing in the real world, not a laboratory where long test barrels are used and give false high velocity readings. See our below velocities fired from my personal firearms.

  • 1.1057 fps - Ruger Vaquero 2006 large frame 5.5 inch barrel
  • 2.1062 fps - Freedom Arms mod. 97 5.25 inch barrel
  • 3. 951 fps - S&W MT. Gun 4 inch barrel
  • 4. 850 fps - Taurus Titanium 2 inch barrel

  • This load is standard pressure and is therefore safe for use in ANY/ALL 45 Colt and 454 Casull firearms. The bullet construction is hard cast (not lead) and properly lubed and will not substantially lead your barrel, even if you fire hundreds of rounds.
