Jon’s identification is correct. You might want to note that since Taiwan uses the Chinese Republic calender, based on 1911, that the date your round was actually made by the Julian calender is 1986.

I suggest you look at the very recent thread on this forum on Chinese .45 ACP rounds. Your round was mentioned there, and you will find more information that I need not repeat here.
