    .45acp buckshot rounds

    when i went back home for the weekend my friends brother showed me some ammo he got at a gun show. he has a glock .45acp and he has shotgun style buckshot rounds for it.
    anyone have any experience with these. i would think they would mess up the barrel on a pistol.

    thanks.

    Have never seen these rds. If they are the normal sized stuff they would be at the largest .360". I would tend to think that they would rattle down the bbl. Also most(except for the copper plated stuff) buckshot is very soft lead which would be prone to streaking your ACP bbl. Also wondering if it would be powerful enough to cycle the action.

    And........my first thought would be >>WHY ??????? --------

    Buckshot, or smaller shot? I have seen lots of fine shot for centerfire.

    My point is, if you are trying to protect your life why even buy or even consider these rounds ? The platforms that use .45 acp, for example the 1911 is far from being a shot gun.

    I've got some CCI shotshells in .45 ACP, but they're a lot smaller than buckshot...I think they're No. 9 or No. 11. Good stuff (at short, very short) range for snakes.

    I doubt they'd do much to help you in a life or dearth grappling situation with a determined BG, though.

    That's why they make 230-gr. Hydrashoks and Gold Dots.....

    Dont think it is buckshot.

    Doubt it is buckshot, Would be pretty useless if it was because the individual shot would be too few (maybe only two balls) and too large to form a tight column and a lot of the force of the 'blast' would be lost going past the shot.

    More likely it is birdshot. As another poster has mentioned, pretty good for snakes. As for a bad guy, unless you are at incredibly short range against a vulnerable part of the body, you will just p!$$ him off.

    I believe he may be referring to Strike Three rounds. Each round contains three #1 Buck pellets. Sounds impressive. Leaves much to be desired in application. Stick with a conventional JHP design.

    I agree, use a conventional defensive round when it hits the fan.

    It's probably birdshot. I have some old .357 rounds left over from the last time I lived in Yuma, AZ.. Carried 3birdshot and 3 hollowpoints in a GP-100 when out in the desert + spare ammo.Got them at the gun shows in Yuma, pretty common snake medicine in the desert southwest.

    So it's kinda like the old .38 spl. duplex rounds ? 2 round ball .38 cal in a casing.

    If you are refering to the Strike Three rounds then, yes. The difference is that rather than using two lighter projectiles of the original caliber, Strike Three has substituted three #1 buck shot.
