The Model 1911 pistol is an American icon, having earned its reputation in multiple wars and more than a century of both civilian and military use. Winchester Ammunition has now released an ammunition line specifically designed to accompany the M1911-the Win1911

“The M1911 pistol is one of the most recognizable and iconic firearms on the market,” said Brett Flaugher, Winchester Ammunition vice president of sales, marketing and strategy. “We at Winchester have undertaken significant testing to maximize functioning and accuracy with these new offerings to create an ammunition line that lives up to the name of the legendary pistol.”

The .45 ACP rounds will be available with either a flat-nose full-metal-jacket (FMJ) or jacketed hollow-point (JHP) design. The flat-nose FMJ rounds are built for accuracy and precision. The JHP rounds are designed to shoot to the same point of impact as their FMJ counterparts, with ballistics matched in velocity and trajectory.

Both the FMJ and JHP designs feature nickel-plated bullet jackets for easy identification and 230-grain bullets traveling at 880 fps, providing similarity in loads for both practice and personal defense.
