Buffalo Bore Ammunition Outdoorsman 45 ACP +P 255 Grain Hard Cast Lead Flat Nose Box of 20

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE HEADSTAMP ON THIS BRASS: Due to limited supplies of brass, Buffalo Bore has begun loading +P and +P+ ammunition in brass that may not be indicated as such on the headstamp. Example: 9mm Luger +P+ ammunition may be designated as 9mm Luger +P or simply 9mm Luger on the headstamp. This ammunition may also be loaded in nickel plated brass, or standard brass finish.

Buffalo Bore loads their ammunition up to maximum SAAMI specifications, which delivers devastating performance on a wide range of game. Please note that this ammunition is not intended for older guns. It is made for modern firearms only, as some of the ammunition could damage older and weaker firearms. This ammunition is new production, non-corrosive, in boxer primed, reloadable brass cases.

Owner of Buffalo Bore Tim Sundles on 45 ACP+P Ammunition:

45ACP+P ammo is externally/dimensionally identical to 45 ACP ammo and can be fired in any 45 acp firearm that is in normal operating condition. However, the greater pressures and power of the +P ammo will give you greater slide velocity and if you are going to shoot more than a box or two of +P ammo, you should consider replacing your recoil spring with a Wolf Spring that gives roughly 4 to 6 lbs more spring weight than factory stock springs. A shock buffer might also be a good addition although it is not too necessary if you use the stronger spring.

The below velocities were fired from my personal Colt Gold Cup 1911 (5 inch)

  • 45255------------960 fps (255gr. HARD CAST-FLAT NOSE)

As always, with Buffalo Bore Ammunition, we use real world firearms to give real world data and results. Laboratory test barrels tell you little about what kind of speed you can expect from your stock firearm.

All our 45 ACP+P loads utilize flash suppressed powders so that you will not be blinded by your own gunfire should you need to fire in the dark when the criminal element is at work.

Incredible Penetration & Protection

This is a round to primarily use as outdoors protection from large predetors. It WILL over penetrate a human and go onward. It will go through both ends of a pickup truck and keep going. Considering that the 9mm 147 grain version took down a 1200lb Grizzly shot out of a 3" Smith & Wesson semi-auto, carefully consider that before loading it for conceiled carry. HOWEVER, that said, I carry a full clip of the 147 in each of my 9mm carry bags and keep it on me as a spare should I wound and adversary and need to shoot them behind their cover. I use this as outdoors protection in my Hi Point 45 pistols and Carbine. It is accurate, fun to shoot, and absolutely devastaing to the target. If you live or recreate in the outdoors or hunt, THIS is the best round to keep you safe.

FN Magazine FN FNP-45 45 ACP 15-Round Steel

This replacement magazine is a factory original from FN. Factory replacement parts are manufactured to the exact same specifications and tolerances and use the same manufacturing materials as the original parts which guarantees excellent fit and reliable operation.

Keeping a few extra factory magazines around is never a bad idea; extra magazines save loading time at the range and also serve as a backup for those days when you simply cannot remember where you put your primary magazine.

This mag is a quality ...

This mag is a quality product as it should be from a high quality company. It fed rounds and locked the slide back on the last round--perfectly. In way of understatement as it is a pricey item, I would have been greatly disappointed if it didn't perform, but not overly surprised or giddy in praise that it did.

Two thumds up.

Great red dot for 9mm carbine, easy to set up and use. Be aware the front lense is tilted back, off axis . This is normal for the red dot, it is not broken. Local P.D. Has had these on AR 15 s for a year with no problems.

This is very accurate in ...

This is very accurate in my Remington 504 and 541. I am getting consistent 1/2" to 3/4" groups (5 rounds) from a 50 yard bench rest. Considering that these are not match grade rifles I am very satisfied. I will be buying more soon.
