    Unfortunately I had too many FTF issues (On Average 1 for every 8 shots)with this ammo in my 1911. Therefore I'm going to plink with this ammo and get a more reliable round for self defense. Always make sure to shoot your self defense ammo. You don't want to find out is doesn't work when you are in a self defense situation.

    This ammo is awesome. My all time favorite. Its expansion and penetration is excellent. I carry and trust it for high risk Dignitary Protection.

    My preferred carry ammo like forever! This is the same round as the infamous Black Talon with a milder name. Still produces the same devastating results as the original. The results here just replicate a lot of other jello testing that has been done with this round. It's bad!
