Rifle Ammos Descriptions
40 S&W - 155 Grain JHP - Remington HTP - 20 Rounds
HTP: High Terminal Performance. This is the 40 S&W ammo you count on to save the day regardless of which handgun you own (provided it is chambered for 40 S&W, of course). This cartridge is outfitted with the 40 S&W’s middleweight 155 grain bullet. Primed to a muzzle velocity of 1,205 fps out of a pistol barrel, it delivers good accuracy as it’s able to stay supersonic past 25 yards. At very close range the bullet transfers nearly 500 ft lbs of energy to its target – which is overwhelming – but even at 100 yards it exceeds the minimum energy threshold commonly advised for self-defense. The HTP JHP is designed to deliver up to double diameter expansion. In short, this is a round capable of punching a 4/5” wide hole into its target. Remington loads their HTP rounds with first-quality brass cases to avert any feeding or extraction issues. Big Green also loads this ammo with their dependable and non-corrosive Kleanbore primers, as well as low-fouling powder to preserve accuracy and functionality of the handgun.
45 ACP - 155 Grain RHT Frangible - Speer Lawman - 50 Rounds
Even the most cautious shooter is subject to certain dangers when they train. Shooting at steel targets and against hard backdrops presents a real risk of splash-back, where copper and lead fragments ricochet back to do serious damage. Splash-back is also a common problem at indoor ranges, where poor ventilation may also cause toxic lead to linger in a carcinogenic haze! But Speer’s Lawman line of ammunition works to make all those risks moot. This 45 ACP cartridge features Speer’s 155 grain Reduced Hazard Training projectile. The frangible bullet is comprised of 100 percent compressed copper particles, which are hardened but not fused together in a process called sintering. The RHT accordingly stays intact as it feeds and fires, but crushes itself into powder when it slaps a steel target or other hard surface. And in conjunction with this round’s heavy metal free Clean-Fire primer, the RHT poses no threat of producing airborne lead that could have accumulated indoors. This round’s lightweight bullet grants it a fast muzzle velocity, although you will find Speer’s training ammo reliably mimics many other conventional self-defense loads. Speer gives their RHT a distinctive pattern on its tip for easy identification, and complements it with a new brass case and clean burning propellant for superior functionality in a semi-auto.
