    My carry ammo is Federal 230 grain HydraShoks. They feed flawlessly and in my personal expansion tests work remarkably well. Expanded to 68 cal and retain 96% of original weight.

    In my PT111 I have PMC Eldorado StarFire 124grn. Apparently this stuff is pretty expensive on gun broker for some reason? It was on sale at one of the sporting goods stores in my area. ($8-$9)

    My wife carries a SA XD .40sc and I carry mynew Glock 23. Both a .40 cal guns and we both carry Remington Golden Saber 165 Grain ammo.

    I want to switch to the Federal Expanding Full Metal Jacket but I can not find any in my area at all. In fact, when i ask about it at the local gun shops I get the whole puzzled look thing and then they always say, "Son, full metal jacketed ammo does not expand." then I have to explain this whole thing to people who should KNOW about it already.

    Where can I get my hands on this ammo?!?

    Currently using WWB 230 JHP because it is all I've got except for FMJ's. Am getting Speer Gold Dot 200g +P. Actually, I'm sure almost any expanding bullet over 185g would be OK in the .45ACP, but some are just a lot better than others

    Will start using the Cor-Bon in the .380.

    I think it is a great idea and every review I have read on it has given it high marks.

    I like the idea of it not having a hollow cavity to plug up with material and then not expend and on top of that, it still expands no matter what it passes through.

    It's a very cool design.
