So no one in my RSS feeds have mentioned them in recent history and I asked the great Twitterverse this same question and got only a single response, so here we are:
Does anyone have any experience with or knowledge of Liberty Ammunition?
My father and I are both intrigued by their claims that they can launch a solid-copper, hollow-point, 76 grain .45 ACP round at 1900 feet-per-second and generate around 600 foot-pounds of force – the numbers work out (actually, it would generate around 625 foot-pounds of force, but we will spot them the difference), but I am curious if their cartridge can actually achieve the claims, given that they are better than most .45ACP cartridges’ claims on the market these days.
Their 9mm claims are not quite so optimistic (50 grains, 2000 fps (holy crap!), and 450 foot-pounds), but still respectable if legitimate.
Unfortunately, this stuff is not cheap – $29 for .45 ACP and $24 for 9mm, and that is for a box of 20 – and I lack a chronometer, so I am disinclined to try to test it myself, but it certainly sounds impressive. So, does anyone have any kind of actual experience with them?
