How potent is Corbon's 9mm-115+P??

This is a discussion on How potent is Corbon's 9mm-115+P?? within the Defensive Ammunition & Ballistics forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I'd like to see the 80gr Barnes Double Tap 9mm out of a carbine and test velocity. That could be an interesting light game round....

    Unfortunately, I had an AD with that exact round about 4 years ago...son accidentally knocked my Browning HP off the loading bench and off it went....it penetrated a plastic bin that I put empty shotgun shells in, passed through the sheetrock wall, and into the cinderblock wall in my backyard.....I have NO problem with what those things can do.

    9BPLE is a +p+ round @ 1300fps.

    Yes it is. 9mm's were authorized during the 80's and early 90's along with 357 Mag's and 45's ACP's. When we transitioned to the 40 S&W, everyone had to carry it.

    Just saw a video where Massad Ayoob discussed HD/SD ammo. He preferred the Cor Bon 9mm 115 gr HP, but I don't recall the other particulars. He noted the cost was $25 per box.

    Must be an old video. Mas no longer agrees on the 9mm Cor Bon.
    Mas says that the 9mm rounds proving to be the best stoppers are the 124/127 grn rounds running at 1250 fps or better.

    Before I retired as an LEO I had a chance to test this round in a variety of materials. Expansion ranged from good to excellent, depending on if the hollow point clogged up. The muzzle energy generated is adequate enough to promote expansion. The US Border Patrol researched ballistics before the FBI's standards became the popular. The stated for reliable expansion you need to generate around 400 ftlbs of energy. This load will generate approximately 466 ftlbs. To put it into perspective, a 110 grain 357 Magnum factory load will generate 410 ftlbs of energy. So effectively this is equal to a 110 grain 357 factory load. Statistically the 110 grainers are about 90% effective. If you aren't into percentages, the US Border Patrol and the US Marshall service issued the 110 grain 357 Magnum for a few years and had great success with it. So if this load is roughly equal in velocity (approx 1350 fps) and produces a little more energy, you will be well served.
