    Curious what you peeps have to say about this ammo

    49073 - Ammo .45 ACP +P MagSafe Super SWAT 68 Grain 2260 fps 8 Pack

    .45 ACP (Automatic Colt Pistol) +P, MagSafe Super Swat Load, 68 Grain Pre Fragmented Bullet , 8 Round Pack.

    MagSafe's revolutionary design uses large lead shotgun pellets rather than solid lead for a bullet's core. MagSafe rounds won't overpenetrate a torso and hurt or kill innocent bystanders and have reduced ricochet potential. MagSafe Ammo is faster, recoils less, and stops attackers faster than any other ammunition in the world. Elite forces are outfitted with MagSafe, from Navy SEALS to the Royal Hong Kong Police anti gang units, from big city undercover narcs to guards at some of America's meanest prisons.

    Here we go again: lightweight/fast vs slow/heavy. This debate has been going on for YEARS!

    I just got a bag of popcorn and will sit back and watch!!

    Ahha... okay then sorry for bringing it up. di#%

    It seems to me like this could potentially defeat kevlar because it's traveling so fast. like 5.7x28 or those special 9mm loads type of fast... But I duno much about it

    Well, I'll bite just to entertain the guys eating there popcorn. $10 bucks says one of them will interject after I comment anyways :)

    +P+ rounds are typically (not always) what leo and some military carry. Yes, they will penetrate kevlar depending on distance. I don't think the debate is about what's better, faster bullet or slower bullet. The whole design purpose behind the +P+ round is as a pentrator and in the case of a handgun that action is done in a more reliable way with velocity. Now, take a 50 cal 750 grain bullet and it doesn't need to go at such high velocities to penetrate because of the mass it carries. Make sense?

    Now I'll sit back and enjoy my popcorn as those that were already eating are now stirring in there theater chairs, :bluelaugh:

    LOL.... anyone who doesn't believe the claim of the fps on this particular ammo then buy a box and chrono it. That's what I did. The very first round cycled the slide so fast it was insane. You'll notice the difference the second you pull the trigger. My Kimber loved it, but my old Sprinfield hated it.

    Oh, I did forget though, the Spring is full size and chrono'd 2120 fps and the Kimber is a compact and chrono'd 1975 fps.

    So what practical SD use would it have? Would it defeat 50cent attacking you with his flashy 9mm and bullet proof vest?

    I remember buying several S&W model 629's while looking down the barrels it was easy to notice that on one, the first inch to second inch was worn quite a bit worse than the rest of the barrel. It was easy to see just what shooting too many "Hot" loads can do to a fine gun. I sold it at the gun show to a woman who wanted to buy it as an "investment".

    Oh I'll agree that the hot loads will wear out your weapon very quickly. No different than building hot loads for a long range rifle.
