    New 9mm +P and .38+P offerings from Double Tap Ammo.

    Some new stuff from Double Tap Ammo.

    Few people know about the 80 gr 9mm offering, as loaded with the street proven Barnes TAC-XP bullet.



    9mm 80gr. Barnes TAC-XP Lead Free 50rds

    This load is an excellent choice for home defense or CCW where limited penetration is needed. You will get excellent stopping power with less chance of overpenetration.


    Caliber : 9mm

    Bullet : 80gr Barnes TAC-XP Lead Free

    Ballistics : 80gr @ 1560fps / 433ft. lbs. from a G17.
    Ruger SR9C 3.5" velocity - 1400fps.





    The new 38+P Barnes load looks promising as well.



    38 Special+P 110gr Barnes TACXP Lead Free 50rds.


    For those of you who carry a 38 Special, this is an excellent defensive load.
    In 10% ordinance gelatin with 4 layers of denim and two of light cotton:
    13.25" penetration
    .57" expansion

    Velocity: 1250fps / 4" Ruger GP-100
    1.875" bbl S&W - 1125fps
    Bullet: Barnes 110gr. TACXP Lead Free

    Muzzle Energy: 382 ft. lbs. 4"
    305 ft. lbs. 1.875"

    The 38+P cartridge is longer than the Double Tap and other 38+P loads, but not by much.

    Easily fits in my LCR's chambers with plenty of clearance.


    Barnes bullets have been street proven for years in loads like the CB DPX and others.

    Double Tap's enhanced velocity and superb quality control and acurracy should make them equal or even better for
    your defensive duties.



    I hope to be shooting/testing this stuff and other ammo through my new LC9 (I mean my wife's new LC9) and LCR 38+P next week or so.

    Can't wait for the review!

    I have often considered trying out doubletap, just never got around to it. I know there were some grumblings about there quality control for a bit. Hopefully that has all been corrected (if it was even true).

    And if you fall into the "light and fast" camp of the ballistics debate doubletap certainly has got you covered. (80gr 9mm ...not sure about that, need to see the test results)

    I'll be interested to see how these rounds affect POI vs. your sight picture.

    I love your ammo!
    If you're going to carry one weapon, might as well carry two, because as the saying goes, "Two is one, and one is none."
