When looking at hunting rounds i've stopped looking at bore size/fps and grain.
Mostly just looking at ft-lbs. Those .45 ACP +P 255gr rounds claim an amazing
815 ft-lbs out the muzzle!
HOLEY SMOKES! That's a great deal of power for the .45 ACP.
If I had to choose a round, that'll probably stop a bear in 2-3 shots of any
short of decent placement. (i have no experience in this, just guessing if
you get past the thick skin, tough muscle, dense bone and into a vital
organ you're good.)
At 50 yards it still has 675 ft lbs.
(my American Eagle Ammunition 45 ACP 230 Grain rounds have a claim of 369 ft lbs
So you have nearly twice
the muzzle energy of my target ammo at FIFTY-YARDS!
A .357 Mag 180 gr has somewhere around 580 - 600 ft lbs. ...
SO your ammo is 1 & 1/3 harder hitting than a .357 mag!
Da-D*****MN!!! I got to try that out if it doesn't blow my gun into fine shrapnel splinters!
Does everyone believe these numbers? Because if they do I'm buying a
case or two of this hot load, going to blow some S***T Up! I'm not sure
why i bought the .458 Socom if they make this kind of ammo for my 1911.
