    looks like Taurus is trying to copy CorBon's DPX. The DPX +P has better velocity

    I got some at a LGS they told me it might not chamber well.
    I have had trouble getting the first round out of the mag unless the slide is locked to the rear when the mag is inserted and the slide release is used to let the slide slam closed to chamber a round. When racking the slide they jammed on the feed ramp and further racking of the slide did no good. Once a round is in the pipe they work.
    I am using a mil spec 1911 and have only tried them with 2 rounds in the mag once and it worked; but, the LGS guy cautioned he had feeding problems.
    They are nasty rounds and blow stuff apart, seem as accurate as anything else. Would be great in a revolver, I would think.

    This article on them says they also use a Barnes bullet. It is probably the same bullet that the DPX uses.

    It ran fine through my springfield 1911 A1 mil-spec. Seemed pretty accurate. Other than that I cant say much.

    Actually Taurus had this round at least 3 years before Corbon. It had a great report on the old froum that tested ammo (I'm embarassed but I can't remember the name but I bet Steve Camp can) This is great ammo and I bought 10 boxes of it so I don't run out. It expanded every single time and stayed in one piece. CDNN has it for sale now and I'm going to get 3 more boxes.

    Looking forward.

    I purchased 5 boxes of these from a Impact Guns in West Vallet, UT. I have not been to the range yet to run them through my XD 45 tactical, but I am looking forward to letting these rip and seeing what they can do.
