Yesterday I bought the full size HK USP 45 V1, it has a 4.4" long barrel, and 3, 12 round mags.
I couldn't find anything marked F1.
hkbullseyeThat might just happen.Lookup 460 Rowland conversion. You can order a 6” USP45 Jarvis barrel, send it to Johnny Rowland for chambering and porting, and send 240 hardcast at 1300fps flying. Switch barrels/recoil assembly’s back and forth anytime. I really enjoy mine...
I actually load and shoot the 45 Super a lot. I've tried several factory and personally loaded varieties. My personal favorite is 250gr flat nose FMJ, however I load my own. If you're buying than the Underwood 255gr coated hard cast is probably your best choice. I have never shot a bear but I have shot a few hogs with a similar load. Penetration is great, bones will be broken, recoil is manageable. My preferred power level is 250's at about 1050-1100 fps. In the H&K MK23 with a flush RMC barrel ejection is about 8' in the H&K UPS Tactical it's about 10'-12'. If the load slows you down too much on rapid fire then 45+p in the same style might serve you better. Not to disparage the 460 Rowland but it might be too much of a good thing. This is more of a hunting cartridge where you set when and where you take the shot. Not defensive on a short notice or surprise, here I would probable empty the mag as quickly and accurately as I could then reload. It's not an argument of 45 Super vs 460 Rowland, but many 45 Super vs fewer 460 Rowland in a limited time engagement. My back up when hunting hogs is a Glock 19 loaded with 16 rounds of 147gr coated hard cast flat nose at about 1100 fps.
I reload 40 Smith and Wesson All I need are a set of dies.
Can't wait to pick it up.
Due to this thread I ordered some of the .400 LeHigh penetrator bullets to load up in 10mm. If they arrive in time I can load them and try out on feral hogs.
which HK is best for going up against bigfoot?
