Automatic Colt Pistol. Colt invented the .45 Auto and thus had the right to name it.
Caliber .45 Automatic Colt Pistol.
It sounds like maybe a .45 ACP. If the bullet is 11mm wide (diameter) and the case (not counting the bullet) is 25mm long, that sounds about right for a .45 ACP round.
No one. A standard .45 ACP bullet is about 230 grains. A .45 caliber bullet that only weighed 50 grains would merely be a very thin disk of lead.
Depends on which .45- 45 Colt, 45 ACP, 45 Magnum, 45-70, and which bullet, and what it is fired from. If you mean the .45 ACP fired by a 1911A1 pistol, velocity varies from 830 FPS up to about 1020 fps. Slow, fat, but gets the job done.
Assuming you're referring to the 9x19 Parabellum/Luger round, the 9mm travels faster than the .45 ACP.
ACP stand for Automatic Colt Pistol
As far as self defense handguns go, the .45 ACP is an extremely powerful and effective caliber, with a proven military track-record.
F.A. 43 bullet is a .45 caliber ACP bullet most likely from the Korean War or World War 2. The F.A. stands for Frankford Arsenal.
Noop. an M16 fires a 5.56mm (or .223 caliber) bullet. A .45 caliber shoots a bullet that is ~11.43mm.
The answer varies, depending on WHICH .45 caliber bullet, and which weapon fires it. In the case of the 1911A1 pistol, in .45 ACP, firing a standard 230 gr. round nosed bullet, when elevated to 33 degrees, the bullet will travel 2096 ft. Not accurately, but that is it's maximum RANGE.
In metric measurements, the .45 ACP is referred to as 11.43x23mm.
The maximum effective range of a .45 caliber bullet is approximately 120 meters.
NO!!! DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS!!!
Probably. It would likely refer to a handgun that fires a .45 caliber ACP, or .45 GAP or an older .45 caliber revolver round.
When people talk of a 38, they mean .38 caliber, or 38/100th of an inch. Likewise, a 45 is .45 caliber or 45/100th of an inch. 45 > 38 so a 45 has a larger diameter. However, there are different lengths for each of those calibers, so a .38 Special is longer than a .45 ACP so in THAT sense, a 38 is larger (longer) than a 45.
Answer The Colt .45 caliber automatic pistol was accepted as the standard side arm of the US Army and became identified as the Model 1911 Pistol. The bullet developed for use in this new design of automatic pistol was called the .45 ACP or the .45 Automatic Colt Pistol cartridge. It stands for "Automatic Colt Pistol" because it was adopted for the Colt 1911 only by the US army.You get many variants the most prolific being the .45 GAP for glock handguns.It's patented I believe.
If you mean the Glock 36, it's 45 ACP.
The .45 caliber bullet is not used in a sniper rifle.
Yes, a 45 caliber bullet is bigger than a 40 caliber bullet. A .45 is0.45 inches wide in diameter and a .40 is 0.4 inches in diameter.
If you fire a .45 caliber bullet at a paper target, it will leave a .45 inch hole.
The standard caliber is .45 acp. That is a short fat pistol caliber that fires a 230 grain bullet at about 800 feet per second velocity. Lighter bullets down to about 185 grains are available, and they travel faster, possibly as high as 1100 f.p.s. The model 1911 pistol is a semi-automatic, not to be confused with an equally famous revolver made by Colt, often chambered in what is also called .45 caliber, but that model 1873 revolver would use the .45 Colt or .45 Long Colt cartridge, which is a rimmed revolver round, much longer in size that the .45 acp, and firing a heaver bullet at similar velocity.
Caliber refers to the diameter of a bullet (bullet is the part of a cartridge that is fired out of the gun). A .223 caliber bullet is .223 inches across. It is normally used as a rifle cartridge. a .45 caliber bullet is more than twice as wide as a .223, and is usually used in pistols. The .223 is lighter- it weighs about 1/4 of a .45 bullet, and they are different shapes- .223 is usually pointed, the .45 is rounded.
.22, 9mm, 45 ACP are among them.
