Guard Dog: Home Defense .45 ACP

These flat-nosed .45 ACPs from Federal perform significantly better in an FBI-sized block of ballistic medium when fired from a longer-barreled sidearm. We got the best results from a SIG P227.

» OVER-PENETRATION during a lethal force encounter—especially with concern to the interior walls of a home or apartment—has become a major enough concern for many responsibly armed Americans to spawn its own mini-industry. The goal of transferring as much energy as possible into a target with minimal chances of over-penetration is a lofty one, but rounds such as these Guard Dogs from Federal have accepted the challenge. The proprietary bullet design maintains an FMJ-style flat nose, but offers JHP-style expansion through a nylon insert that guides the metallic section of the projectile when it enters a target. They are specifically designed to lose energy after passing through building materials faster than traditional JHP or ball rounds, they are legal where jacketed hollow-points are banned by name, and they are available from retailers nationwide.
