    Already many great choices for defensive 9mm ammo. I would think this may overpenetrate. I can see a application for woods carry load though. Maybe for hunting as well.

    I will be interested to actually see some tested and of course what it will end up costing to actually buy it.

    But... one round is less than two 115gr rounds, and one less leaky hole thingy.... :eek:

    Or you could watch the video where there address that concern, instead of only reading the video title and making assumptions?

    Meh, Color me skeptical. A guy talking about how great his new whizzbang ammo is does not hold sway with me.

    Same thing that hunting bullets have been doing since the 40s. Hunting bullet technology is way more advanced than what you find with personal defense bullets. Hope they can start to close the gap. Unfortunately, pistol cases just don’t have as much capacity. In my experience actually killing things instead of shooting gel, neither bullet technology or speed alone are the perfect answer, but a combination of both.

    In the famous words of @Certaindeaf...

    Didn't click. But a crack whore told me 185g tastes good when eaten one at a time.


    Not really.

    Let's see: a slower, heavier bullet is superior.

    Hmmm, where have I heard that before???

    Is this going to morph into one of those 45 vs 9mm threads?

    Actually I think it has more potential to turn into a Keith vs O’Conner thread:D.
