Handgun

45 Auto

For more than a century, the 45 Auto—also known as the 45 ACP—has reigned as one of the most powerful and popular cartridges for semi-automatic handguns.

American Eagle® Syntech™

The exclusive polymer coating in American Eagle® Syntech™ prevents harsh metal-on-metal contact between the bullet and bore, eliminating copper and lead fouling. Combined with clean-burning powders and the Catalyst lead-free primer, Syntech loads keep your gun cleaner, longer, so you can shoot more—and shoot better.

American Eagle® Handgun Suppressor

American Eagle® Handgun Suppressor rounds perform to their ballistic peak in suppressed firearms, thanks to carefully selected propellants, bullet weights and primers. Their sub-sonic loading eliminates the super-sonic “crack” suppressors can’t silence. In addition, special clean-burning powders minimize fouling while reliably functioning in semi-automatic firearms. Suppressor loads are priced for volume shooting.
