Everyone has been anxiously awaiting the .45 carbine for years now. Will it be better than the .40 S&W just because it is a larger caliber? For a pistol, I would prefer the .45 cal. for the typical 25 yd or less shot. But for 100 and 200 yard shots with a carbine, which caliber has the better terminal ballistics? We won't know for sure until the Hi-Point .45 carbine comes out, but some of you may have had experience with the discontinued .45 Marlin Camp carbine.
