    I really want those wide, jagged, petal-shaped flanges in my SD ammo. Even though DPX is expensive and it is painful to shoot a box for testing with your CCW, it's worth it. Unlike some, I don't think I need to shoot 1,000 rounds of this to prove my firearm. I do need to shoot at least a box of it. If the gun feeds everything else without trouble, then I'm good to go.
    I agree. The Barnes TAC-XP bullets are one of the best JHP bullet designs on the market, and they consistently expand to the same diameter over and over and over while penetrating just as well as premium 147 gr. JHP bullets.

    I carry Federal 115gn +p+ @ $17 per box of 50 rounds. If for some reason I can not find that ammo, then I would go with Speer Gold Dot 124gr +P
    Glock: G22 .40 S&W and G23 .40 S&W Sig Sauer: P938 9mm Smith and Wesson: Model 437 .38 Spl, Model 65 357 Mag, and Sigma SW9VE 9mm

    That does seem expensive. I use Speer GD 124gr +p and I can get a box of 50 for that price. It is a good idea to run more than just a mag or two of your SD ammo for reliability. I usually break a gun in w/ about 250 rounds, 100 of which are SD ammo.

    My carry ammo usually gets shot off at least twice a year. Just be careful of set-back if you keep charging the same rounds if you're downloading your mags when you use target ammo.

    I ran tests on the Older Cor-Bon 115Gr JHP +P 9MM vs the newer Cor-Bon 115GR DPX All Copper round at my indoor range where the light levels are low. There was considerable white muzzle flash with the JHP compared to the deep red slight flash from the DPX. i shot the rest of the JHP up and bought more of the DPX.

    This ballistics test is Corbon 115+P being shot into some chicken! Totally wrecks the insides! Some police depts. carry this ammo swearing that it stops the BG as well as any 40 caliber ammo!

    Good idea to use expired chicken. I don't think you can get a live chicken into one of those neat little plastic packages.

    at one point, perhaps 12 tears ago, the standard Cor Bon 115 grain +P was one of the top performing SD rounds in 9mm. while there are probably rounds that now out-perform it, it certainly hasn't gotten any worse during that time. it's still my primary carry round in my Sig P-239/9mm.

    Here's 9mm COR-BON DPX 115 gr. +P vs. Federal HST 147 gr.

    9mm Corbon 115 gr +P Barnes XPB JHP; ave vel=1229 fps (G19); gel cal= 9.5cm@593fps
    BG: pen=14.8", RD=0.54", RL=0.48", RW=115.1gr
    4LD: pen=15.1", RD=0.54", RL=0.49", RW=115.4gr

    9mm Fed 147 gr HST JHP; ave vel=997 fps (G19)
    BG: pen=14.6", RD=0.61", RL=0.39", RW=147.1gr
    4LD: pen=15.6", RD=0.56", RL=0.53", RW=145.5gr

    Despite it's cost, I've switched back from the Speer Gold Dot 124 gr. +P to the 9mm DPX as well.
    Correct me if wrong. The data you show here, the HST is almost equal? Why would you go +P adding more wear to the weapon? Thanks!

    Back in the day I talked to Pete at Corbon. He called the 115+P 9MM load his bread and butter load. This was their most popular 9MM round. Police and Civilians were buying it like crazy. Evan Marshal also gave it his approval.

    this july 4th i shot my corbon powerball +P 9mm through phone books and was AMAZED at how much more the corbon penetrated compared to these cheapo generic MFS 9mm FMJs 115gr i had, which you'd think would penetrate more just by the shape of the bullet and not being set up for hollow point mushrooming, not so... just look at the ballistics and foot pounds... Corbon is pretty much it... wouldn't want hotter if there is much out there hotter and of course make sure your gun can handle +P and is rated for it...your 1400 fps looks good enough, if to be believed as so nice and well rounded a number ;)
    Pow'Rball: 100gr 1474fps 483 foot pounds... so it looks like u have something comparable, which is what btw

    - so why not have the greater hollow point mushrooming effect of the powerball and at least as good a loader with the FMJ effect of the powerball stuck in the hollow point? - these penetrate better as well compared to the usual hollow points...

    Now for the dumb question. With new bullet techology out there would any of you feel that this round is inadequate for the job?
