Here is the bullet data, the 45 is bigger faster and packs almost twice the flbs

It's personal defense and it's not the cheapest stuff around. I purchased it at my local gun store in Virginia. The store is called SSG Tactical. The Web site for RBCD is

Given that RBCD doesn't state what kind of gun the ammo was tested in, you have to say the tests were done from a 24" test barrel, not a handgun. YMMV

He was implying that the may have used some freakishly long barrelled weapon in each of the specified calibers to achieve the numbers posted
Or
They are just that good....lol
Check the specs on magsafe ammo, it's light and fast as well.

Any 45acp JHP is likely to do its part so long as you hold up your end.

I generally prefer Winchester Rangers for carry, simply because they're a LE staple that I can buy in 50rd boxes...making them more affordable per round than the 20-25rds/box variety.

I would trust many others as well... Remington Sabres, Federal Hydrashoks (and even budget Hi-Shoks), Hornady, Speer Gold Dots, CorBon, Fiocchi, etc, etc.
