Getting a .45 to stop in drywall will be a challenge...I would look at Mag-Safe and Glazer, and
do your own tests. You can also armor areas that are more likely to receive incoming and
outgoing fire with bookcases and the like. You can also buy thin sheets of galvanized steel to
slightly armor under your sheetrock in 'tactical' areas, though it won't stop much, but may
decrease lethality. I don't know if they are still available, but Mag-Safe used to offer a 'Super-
Swat" 46gr .45acp load that allegedly cruised along at 2,400 fps from a 5" gun. I got 2,150
from a HK USP 45c short tube gun-not to bad, but forget about deep penetration....I think
this round was more designed for hi-energy, low penetration features.....hope this helps!

Handloader did an article a LONG time ago Neighborly .45
The author went to a super heavy super slow bullet. He remarked that the bullet skidded on the rifling in the throat after the manner of revolvers.
Mixed feelings is a negligent discharge that doesn't penetrate (mine not his).

I like Double Tap!
Mike McNett puts out a 230 grain GDHP that consistently clocks from a Colt Government Model @ 1010 fps without ranging into +P pressures!
Works for me!

I like the new Federal 230+P Classic Hi Shok and also Speer Gold Dot 200 +p load. Now I found some really good info from a book called "STREET STOPPERS" written by Evan Marshall. He has done so much research that he may have the answers of what you are looking for. he also wrote another book called "STOPPING POWER". I hope that this has helped .
