  .45 ACP - Biocrawler   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
The US Cavalry, based on testing in battle, decided that existing.38 caliber pistol cartridges appearing in the early 1900s were not adequate enough to replace the current cavalry revolver, a.45 Colt Single Action Army.
The resulting.45 ACP cartridge is similar in performance to the.45 SandW cartridge, and thus slightly less powerful than the.45 Colt cartridge.
Even in its full metal jacket form the.45 ACP cartridge is very effective against targets that do not wear body armour, because the large bullet has a tendency to expand when it hits bone.
