No 180 Grain at Local Armory
So, I went for a visit at the armory near my office, today. I wanted to pick up some Federal HST's, or Ranger T's, or Gold Dots in 180 grain (.40 cal).
They didn't have any in stock. In fact, the armory didn't have any 180 grain .40 cal ammo in stock. They couldn't tell me why they were out - be it a shortage on their part, or if they weren't stocking it. The latter seems really odd. Don't get me wrong, I'm not bashing the store. They are always helpful and usually have everything I could ever need. I love the place. I'm just curious if 180 grain ammo not as popular anymore. After all of my due diligence in researching different rounds, I can't find a ballistic reason for it to be less popular. In fact, I thought many agencies have been shifting from the 155/165 back to the 180's.
Personally, I only shoot 180 because I am the most accurate with it. It has softer recoil, my followup shots are easier. Anyone else had trouble finding it lately?
