    All Ive got handy right now is Corbon 165 grain Pow'rball, shooting it up and switching to 230 gr gold dots on payday. Powrball feeds good and gives you that +p feel of joy when you shoot it, but it doesnt inspire as much confidence as a 230 grain ashtray does.

    What weight? I like the 147 grn in all of the premium JHP brands (plus WWB 147 JHP works amazingly well in testing).

    Winchester White Box 9mm 115gr JHP. They are cheap to shoot (lots of practice) and perform well.

    Good read on this article about .40S&W ammo.

    http://yarchive.net/gun/ammo/ammo_tests.html

    Says PMC Eldorado Starfire did quite well.

    Now if I could find some info on the .45round from them...

    The other post with the scenario of shooting BG and the round going through and striking IB (innocent bystander) has got me re-thinking my carry ammo.

    Another good site showing penetration & expansion with bare and clothed gelatin as well as FPS. One of the above sites lists FPE if you need that info as well.

    Any comments now on your carry round???
