VariantsEdit

.45 Auto, +PEdit

.45 Auto, +P (overpressure) is ammunition designed to fire at a higher internal pressure than standard ammunition to ensure higher velocity, stopping power and a slight armor piercing ability but at the cost of requiring more maintenance than usual. This ammunition can be bought at most vendors in small quantities. It can also be made at a reloading bench.

.45 Auto, hollow pointEdit

.45 Auto, hollow point rounds, manufactured by Federal Cartridge, are designed to mushroom and expand on impact, causing massive trauma on fleshy, unarmored targets. However, this also means they break up when they hit things like armor plating, drastically reducing the weapon's penetrating power.

.45 super (hand load)Edit

.45 super, manufactured by Southern Cartridge, is an ammunition load designed for much higher pressures than the gun was originally intended to fire. Muzzle velocity is 20% greater than even +P resulting in much better armor penetration and damage, but causing considerable wear to guns not specially designed to operate these "Wildcat" rounds. The player character must have the Hand Loader perk to craft this round at a reloading bench.

  • .45 Auto rounds are one of only two ammunition types that can be broken down into exactly the same number of materials needed for their construction, the other being rockets.
