    What's the difference between these two. I've seen them mentioned all over this forum but never really knew the difference, so could someone enlighten me?

    To answer your question: The biggest difference is the cost to shoot it. Ballistically they are almost identical.

    I assume they're not interchangeable.

    .45

    Not interchangeable, although you can get them into moon clips and into a 625 revolver. I didn't shoot them, though. If ammo sales and our range rentals are any indication, it's a dead caliber. We get more call for .41 magnum and 10mm than for .45GAP

    GAP

    I believe PA state police went to it, too. Anybody know of any local agencies using the GAP?

    GAP performs similarly to standard ACP performance. "+P" ACP performs better than GAP.

    If the SHTF, think it'll be easier to find GAP or ACP ammo??? That's why I'd choose ACP over GAP. Or .40/9mm over .355 Sig/10mm.
