Oh yeah! I think I was kidding, because I already have saved my fav links, on 45 colt ammo, PT111 stuff, and anything to do with my Rossi!Steelheart said:Thats easy, just save a direct link to this thread.
The various 158gr +P LHP's have a track record that goes for decades. The GD 135gr +P is an evolved load from their 125gr that has been optimized for short barrels, I believe this load was engineered for the NYPD for their 38 snubs. The DPX hasn't had any actual use that I've heard of but all the testing done has turned out great.Steelheart said:Best is a difficult question to answer. Some of the best performing loads are 158gr LHP (from various manufacturers), Corbon DPX and Speers 135gr Gold Dot. All are +P loads.
If you look around in the Factory Loads section this has been discussed before I think.
I think that might be too much of a blanket statement. There are situations where frangible rounds are worth considering. For example, if you live in an apartment, I'd seriously consider a Glazer or Magtech round, due to overpenetration. Also, if you have children in the house, it's worth considering. You own the bullet once you pull the trigger, until it comes to a complete stop. Firing at a bad guy is one thing, but what if your first shot misses? What if you get into some kind of shootout? I'm just saying that in certain scenarios, this type of ammo could solve the problem of overpenetration. They shouldn't be discounted completely.rightherenc said:Anything that is fragmented is going to have poor penetration. Period. Stay away from these rounds and stick with some of the ones mentioned above used by LE.
