Federal's .45ACP 165gr EFMJ


I’ve been wanting some of this ammo for some time, to add to my collection and to test but it has been unusually hard to find, for me. I know there has been a rush on ammo but I figured it should have eased up a little by now. So I sent Federal an email and here is the gist of what I got back. I thought it was kinda interesting for a commercial loading.

“Production and Shipping are currently working 24/7 to try and keep up with the demand. Ref. PD45CSP2 H hasn’t shipped since last June and will be produced & shipped again this June.”

They haven’t shipped since June of 09 and won’t make anymore for a year, despite demand? Strange.

(EFMJ is Expanding Full Metal Jacket, an interesting concept.)
