I was in walmart today and I was looking at the ammo section as usual but this time I saw some federal hollow points in a grey box that I have never seen before. The price for 50 was $22. I was wondering if any of you have had any experience with this ammo? If so what did you think about the ammo, was it clean shooting, how did it run through your gun etc?

They are good quality, but older designs. That said...C9BPLE, a 115 grain +p+ from the classic line has been rated as slightly more lethal than pancreatic cancer.
Will it do as well in the FBI protocalls as HST or Gold Dot...no, but then again, it was on the market in the 1980's and has been killing people left, right and center since then...so you be the judge.
As to how it ran...fine. Recoil is stout, and accuracy is like a laser. Clean. Very clean.
