One of the pistol submitted for U S Army tests that settled on the Colt 1911 was a blowback .45 caliber pistol that used metal clad wooden bullets. The bullet was very light but they got insane velocities from this unlocked breech pistol. I've no doubt it would have been very deadly at close range.

It would hurt worse than a 12 gauge with rock salt.
