WINDER, Ga. -( Consider an already large .45 ACP round, which has proven over many years to stop fights quickly, and render it 2-3 times more effective.

That’s some serious stopping power.

The 230 grain .45 ACP at 850 FPS was designed to stop or wound people quickly on a battlefield.

A benefit on the battlefield but not for civilian self-defense due to over penetration of the intended target and becoming a danger to others.

Newer and hotter .45 ACP hollow point rounds in the 185 grain 1,000 FPS range are an improvement.

They expand up to .65 caliber (16.51 millimeters) yet still produce over penetration harming property or innocent people.

Here’s the good news. The new G2 Research Civic Duty .45 ACP + P round solves several problems.

It is designed to penetrate 6 to 8 inches in ballistic gel, depositing all its energy into the target. The design prevents it from passing through the target, instead quickly and fully opening inside the gel or fluid to prevent over penetration.

It will expand to nearly 11/2 inches (nearly 38 millimeters). The large copper petals open like airplane propellers causing a large wound channel. It will stop the fight–quickly!

MSRP $59.99 a box of twenty. These G2 Research Civic Duty rounds are individual CNC machined bullets.

This level of engineering is needed to predict performance and maximum consistency for civilian self-defense.


  • Caliber: .45ACP +P
  • Bullet: 164 grain solid copper CNC machined petal pealing hollow point.
  • Velocity: 1020 fps from 5-inch 1911 pistol
