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.
I got to tell you the 45 acp does great at range! I have seen 45 acp from a 1911 hit the steel plate at 200 yards. And when it hits it rings loud. I have seen many shots out to 75 yards with a 1911 knocking over steel plates. If I can find a video of it I will post it.
The British had a silenced 45 carbine in WWII they would make 350 yard shots with it.
The 4595 is just a pipe dream thats not coming true any time soon.
It's not a pipe dream... they're still making progress on it, they just want to make sure it's "just right" before they put it out. They have a functional prototype right now, the CEO's still dissatisfied with the barrell though.
