I just read a post here where a cop was using Cor Bon bullets and had a shoot out with a perp and the cop said after the fact that he didn't like the performance of the bullet and switched to Gold Dots.
I have been looking seriously at getting the Cor Bon's for my .40, but the price $41 for 20 and the weight still bother me.
As an avid archer and bow hunter the debate of speed vs weight of arrow comes up all the time. Some say fast, lighter arrows do better and others say heavier is the way to go. Obviously the law of physics would tend to tell me that heavier is better, even at a slower velocity because of the laws of energy and momentum. It is just plain harder to stop something heavy.
That said, I currently carry Federal 180gr JHP's in my .40. I know in a perfect world I could easily conceal and carry a .44 magnum, but the reality is I can't. So I want something that hits hard and does the job. Since I have never shot a person with my pistol, it is all speculation and conjecture about bullet weight and speed being effective or not. Cor Bon says light and fast is better, but seems others who would know (cops that have actually shot people) say different.
Help me arm myself with the best bullets possible! Experienced guys speak up please!
