Anyone tried 45 gr ACPs in an ZKW 465 Brno 22H?
Curious to know if the 1 in 16? or 14 twist will stabilize them.
I have made up a few dummy rounds that the bolt closes on, but are too long to fit in the mag, but I will single load them
Would they open up at modest hornet velocity?

thanks

You'll need more speed than you can get in the Hornet to get them to group consistantly.
They are longer than a Barnes 45 gn and max charge of Ltl gun would just get them to not go through sideways.
Groups were 2 inches I think.
