    Not the best expanding round but a very soft shooting round in my G19 and MP Shield. Definitely a good entry level HP bullet!

    this load could be used for a strategic reserve to keep jhp in a bad situation.
    This load is too light for intermediate barriers. What I saw in home testing is a deforming of the bullet instead of a true flower petal.
    This load has been shown to be very accurate and reliable in most pistols.
    I would probably carry and practice with this load. As a civilian I wouldnt be dealing with barriers.

    Ran great thru my ruger P95. Very accurate. Wouldn't think twice about using it for carry. And a bargain price is always nice.

    Fired flawlessly through my Walther PPX, accurate,
    115gr didn't produce any muzzle flip.
    At this cost per round a bargain!
