MagSafe® Self-Defense Ammo.

In controlled tests with .357 law enforcement loads, the 10mm used by the FBI, and other hollow points, this one beat 'em all! Fragments to penetrate... so it's safer, without ricochets. Handcrafted to precise specs, making it accurate and reliable.

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. The reason is simple. MagSafe works. You really can turn your .380 into .45 auto.

SWAT Loads for handguns have reduced wall penetration. Our .38 Spec., .357 Magnum, 9mm & .44 caliber SWAT Loads have pellet cores and break up in sheetrock walls.  The .40 S&W and .45 ACP SWAT  Loads have epoxy-only cores, and may not break up in walls. However, their light weight (and low recoil) offer less wall penetration than standard ammo.

  • Cartridge: .45 ACP Super Swat +P Ammo
  • Bullet Wt. Grains: 68
  • Muzzle Velocity (F.P.S.): 2,260
  • Muzzle Energy (Ft.-lbs.): 771
  • Rounds / Box: 10
