Has anyone here every used, tried, tested, trusted, or carried the Extreme Shock brand of ammo.
Seems they have the Air Freedom Round, very little penetration on hard objects but good on soft tissue.
Then the Fang Face round which penetrates more.
Then the Enhanced Penetration round which is even more penetrating but IT IS NOT A Hollow Point, due to my NJ Hollow Point post I started with Google.
The Air Freedom or FangFace sound like a pretty good combo if you live in an apartment or cheap hotel. No over penetration but if you hit soft tissue, then massive devastation. I know that these two won't meet the FBI penetration test but I do feel a lot of ammo for different types of self defense (stop the threat) could be somewhat less penetrating.
What do I mean by that? Why not have the first round or two in the chamber and magazine be one that is less penetrating then have those followed by hollow points, especially if the main threat may be coyotes or pit bulls or bad guys in summer clothes.
Just a thought. Opinions? I am sure there are.

If I'm looking for a non-hollowpoint for use in New Jersey I'll stick with Corbon Power Ball or Federal EFMJ thank you.
I used to be inclined to stick with hardball in a .45 ACP, but a recent letter confirming the acceptance of those two rounds lead me to favor them over hardball ammo in New Jersey.
As for Extreme Shock and other "cool" named ammo, no thank you. I have better things to spend my money on, even if the better things cost more. Try to explain to a jury why your ammo is named as it is. I'll wait here.
Wish I could help, but I have never used it for anything. Read some on it, but the proof is putting it to use on something live, and it aint huntin season yet.
I would never depend on ammunition that had to resort to names like Fang Face to get marketed. So gimmickry.

From their literature:Considering that everything in that sentence is complete and utter pseudo-scientific horse manure (i.e. a bald faced lie), I will never give a single cent to that company, even if they eventually develop the super-duper death ray...E-Shock rounds are engineered to expend maximum energy into soft targets, turning the density mass into an expanding rotational cone of NyTrilium matrix particles, causing neurological collapse to the central nervous system...
A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.
I remember growing up watching my uncles and my grandaddy use their pocket knives to carve notches in the tops of their lead bullets. They killed just about everything that ever breathed.
