230gr X 850fps= 195,500 power factor.
Im going to load a minor league pitcher in my holster, since that ****s way more better than a boolit.
Using 850 fps is lower end cheap target ammo. They also make 230 grain +P ammo that can get as high as 1200 fps. You can get a wide variety of different velocities for 45acp.
Using the higher end stuff, you can say 45 acp wouldn't have any more knockdown power than an 80mph fastball, but if we're talking target ammo, then it's closer to 60 mph fastball.
... And your last comment about putting a baseball in your holster was meant to be funny, but we're only talking about knockdown power, not penetration, or which one is more deadly, or even which one is better... Just approximately the same (and very insignificant) knockdown power of a bullit or baseball.
