Load data for caliber ".45 Glock Auto Pistol"
The .45 GAP (Glock Auto Pistol) cartridge was developed by Glock in the early 2000s as a compact alternative to the .45 ACP cartridge.

The .45 GAP has a bullet diameter of .451 inches (11.5 mm) and a case length of .755 inches (19.2 mm). It was designed to fit in a shorter and more compact cartridge case than the .45 ACP, which allows it to be used in smaller and more concealable handguns, particularly those made by Glock.

The .45 GAP has similar ballistics to the .45 ACP, with a typical muzzle velocity of around 850 to 1,000 feet per second (260 to 305 m/s) and a muzzle energy of around 400 to 550 foot-pounds (540 to 750 J). It is primarily used for self-defense and law enforcement applications, although it has also gained some popularity among civilian shooters for target shooting and competition.

Despite being a relatively new cartridge, the .45 GAP has gained some acceptance and popularity among law enforcement agencies, particularly those that use Glock pistols. However, it has not achieved the same level of widespread adoption as the more established .45 ACP or 9mm cartridges.

The Commission internationale permanente pour l'épreuve des armes à feu portatives ("Permanent International Commission for the Proof of Small Arms" – commonly abbreviated as C.I.P.) is an international organisation which sets standards for safety testing of firearms. (The word portatives ("portable") in the name refers to the fact the C.I.P. tests small arms almost exclusively; it is ordinarily omitted from the English translation of the name.) As of 2015, its members are the national governments of 14 countries, of which 11 are European Union member states. The C.I.P. safeguards that all firearms and ammunition sold to civilian purchasers in member states are safe for the users.
To achieve this, all such firearms are first proof tested at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses. The same applies for cartridges; at regular intervals, cartridges are tested against the C.I.P. pressure specifications at the ammunition manufacturing plants and at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses.
