Underwood Ammo’s bonded rounds are unrivaled in power and precision. We utilize Speer bonded bullets which employ an exclusive Uni-Cor process where they bond the jacket to the core one molecule at a time. This essentially eliminates core-jacket separation, maximizes weight retention, and allows for unparalleled penetration and controlled yet fatal expansion.
As with all of Underwood Ammo’s rounds, we utilize flash suppressed powder so that your vision will not be compromised if it becomes necessary to use your firearm in low light.
While taking advantage of our state of the art testing equipment, this high performance ammunition is field tested using popular, real firearms that our customers are most likely to own out in the real world with all the elements you would experience. If for some reason Underwood Ammunition fails to meet performance expectations, we stand by our product 100% and will make sure the customer is satisfied with every purchase.
This ammunition is new production, non-corrosive, in boxer primed, reloadable brass cases.

Hard Hitting & Impressive!
Posted by John B. on 7th Jun 2015
Underwood has done it again amping up a timeless round with an extra punch and excellent hollow point configuration. For personal defense you can't any better than this! This is all I carry. Burns clean, no ftf's or fte's, with very manageable recoil. Give them a try...you will not be disappointed! Underwood's service and commitment to excellence are second to none.
The best carry ammo on planet earth!

lETS MAKE THIS REVIEW SHORT AND QUICK! I have been shooting for over 30 years, I have to say underwood is second to no one! Quality of this ammo is by far the best we have tested to date! Price is sweet, Service is above and beyond others, Shipping and handling is top notch! I just don't feel safe unless Underwood ammo is in my mags! I stake my life and my families life on this ammo everyday!

I have ordered, years ago, from the big store fronts who sell the common brands of ammo. As we all know, most of these ammo brands are mediocre ballistically. I like a fast, hot round, one that is up to original specs, such as the specs on the 10mm, whereas the big ammo companies load the 10mm down to around 40 caliber specs. I want original specs, and I like a fast moving 230 grain 45 ACP. Underwood delivers this. With their very reasonable sales prices and quality of the ammo, how could you go wrong. They in fact are the only company I buy my ammo from.

I have carried Federal Hydra-Shoks for years in a variety of 1911s and a Glock 30. Not anymore! Product came well packaged and cartridges were extremely consistent. Alternated shooting these through a Taurus PT1911 and a Glock 30 and had zero problems. Thanks for making a great product at an affordable price.

I recently purchased 100 rounds of the Underwood Ammo 45acp +P 230 Grain Gold Dot JHP for test and evaluation. This ammunition performs flawlessly! Fired across my chronograph from my 1911 I was recording velocities around 990 feet per second. Shot through four layers of denim and wet newspaper I was getting near 20" of penetration and expansion up to 3/4". At $31.00 a box, this ammunition is an excellent value. I highly recommend it!

I won't carry anything else
Posted by Steve Correll (SCOTTSDALE, AZ) on 27th Dec 2014
For the price, this is hands down the round for me. Stout, but manageable, I carry and shoot these flawlessly through my Kahr PM45. I had been shooting and carrying Fiocchi for several years, and it is an ok round. This Underwood .45 takes my weapon to the next level. Easy to shoot and hits what I point at. For the price and quality, I won't have anything else in my carry .45's.

Excellent customer service
Posted by Robert Mccallum (Laconia, NH) on 27th Dec 2014
First, This guy is top notch.With all the bullet hoarding , I watched more than 80 boxes sell out in a few hours. I placed an order(5 boxes) on a Sunday and the USP label (done Mon.) shows it will be here on Wed. Great product, good price, but the best part is excellent customer service. You can't ask for more. It absolutely destroy's watermellons. Penetration was into 3rd water jug through 3 layers of clothing from 25 feet. Expanded every time, although I did not measure it. I will not buy ammo anywhere else.

My New Carry Ammo
Posted by Luis Castro Jr (Midlothian, IL) on 27th Dec 2014
A little worried about the recoil with this round shooting out of an XDS 3.3 but the recoil was not much more than any standard 45 ammo. Don't get me wrong you will feel the difference but not as bad as I was expecting. The best thing about this ammo was that it had virtually no flash and it was 100% reliable from my pistol which is ammo sensative. The accuracy was amazing from this load as well. On the same day I shot 185 +P Golden Sabres, Underwood 200GR +P Gold Dot, and these 230GR +P Gold Dots. The Underwood 230's were the most accurate followed by the Golden Sabre's and lastly the Underwood 200's. I dont know what it was with the 200's but the rounds always went just left of the target. Decent groupings for the 200's but the 230's had a magazine of 7 rounds grouped from 21 feet away that could of been coverd by a silver dollar right on the X. Consistant amazing accuracy from the full box. I can't see myself buying any other ammo to carry. I trust it with my life.
