    I keep a mag loaded of RA9SXT 9mm 147 gr I like it. There is a difference between t series and SXT.

    For all practical purposes this bullet is almost exactly the same as the Speer Gold Dot Hollow Point which is available not only as loaded ammo but as a handloading component as well.

    Here's a video showing it's performance against denim fabric.

    The key to this and similar bullet's performance is the bonded (often plated) jacket and the "weakened" cavity rim. They've come a long way from the old "Silver-Tip".
