Thread: The Ammunition Report for .30 (7.62x25), .357 Mag, .45 ACP & .22

  1. #41
    The Winchester 7.62x25/.30 Bore ammo available in the US is actually made in the Czech Republic. It is good ammo, but a bit on the hot side.

    357 Magnum

    Historical Notes :-
    Introduced in 1935 by Smith & Wesson for their heavy-frame revolver. The ammunition was developed by Winchester in co-operation with Smith & Wesson. Major Douglas B. Wesson (of S&W) and Philip B. Sharpe are also credited with much of the final development work. The 357 Magnum is based on the 38 Special case lengthened about 1/10 inch, so it will not chamber in standard 38 Special revolvers. This was the most powerful handgun cartridge in the world until 44 Magnum was introduced in 1955. Colt, Ruger, Taurus and Smith & Wesson manufacture revolvers of various types for this cartridge. There has also been a proliferation of imported single and double-action revolvers and seeral single shot pistols chamber it.

    General Comments :-
    Probably the most popular high-velosity handgun cartridge in the United States for police, hunting or target work. It provides about double the elocity and more than three times the energy of the standard 38 Special load. It is noted for its flat trajactory, deep penetration and great knock-down power. It has been used successfully on deer, black bear, elk and even grizzly bear. However, it is not really adequate for these large animals unless used by a good handgun shot. It is also used in repeating and single shot rifles as matched arms to go along with the revolver. In a 20 to 24-inch rifle barrel, the standard factory load will develop about 1650 fps muzzle velocity and special handloads will develop over 2000. It is considered the best all-round handgun hunting cartridge for small and medium game and, under proper conditions, for deer at shot range. During Korean conflict it was found to be very effective against the body armor used by the Communist forces.

    45 Automatic or 45 ACP

    Historical Notes :-
    Developed by John Browning in 1905 and adopted by the United States Ordinance Department, with the Colt-Browning automatic pistol, in 1911, it has also been made the official military handgun calibre by several other governments., notably Argentina, Mexico and Norway. The 45 Automatic is the most powerful military handgun cartridge in use today. It is also one of the most difficult to master. The Colt Government auto pistol and the Colt and Smith & Wesson Army Model 1917 revolvers are the principal arms chambered for the 45 ACP in the United States. Several Submachine Guns have used it, and about 1943 a number of Reising semi-automatic rifles were marketed in this calibre. Imitations of the Colt auto pistols have been made in Argentina, China, Korea, Norway, Spain and the U.S. It was replaced as of 1985 as the official U.S. military handgun cartridge by the 9mm Parabellum.

    General Comments :-
    The 45 ACP has been proven in combat all ove the world as having excellent stopping power. It has also developed into a first-class match cartridge with accuracy equal to the best. It requires a good deal of practice for the average person to develop any degree of skill with this cartridge, particularly when fired in the Colt Government Model Semi-Automatic. It is use far more for target shooting than hunting, its curved trajactory limiting its effective range. Although not a highly popular police calibre, a number of departments have switched from 38 Special to the 45 ACP in the past few years.

    Btw the same company makes WOLF GOLD ammo and it is almost the same round with slightly lower specs.
    Are these still available in market and if they do then whats the latest price?

    then that means hollow points travel at a much lower speed than normal ones, as the normal 7.62 x 25 ( .30 ) travels at 2700ft/s
