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

    I have a Glock 19 and was considering buying a couple
    boxes of Corbon's 9mm- 115+P JHP for home defense!

    Does any shooter on Defensive Carry have any experience with this round? And how is this round's street record?

    If you are tallking about the DPX--great choice. Spendy, though.

    If you are talking about their traditional JHP--I'd pass for one of many better choices out there.

    Then again, I don't get lubed up over lightweight, warp velocity bullets. YMMV.

    Maybe you should ask on glock talk.

    in their "Stopping Power" series of books, evan marshall and ed sanow have it rated as one of the best 9mm, SD rounds.

    Which would be great, if the M&S study hadn't been pretty much made up.

    Essentially what you are asking is has anyone ever shot anyone with these rounds and how did they perform? All else is just speculation...right?

    I've shot several boxes of it - one of my favorites for SD carry. Very snappy; be sure your firearm is rated for it.

    Every test I have seen or conducted with the Cor Bon DPX have been excellent. Never seen one plug, always expands, and very high velocity. Problem is the price.

    You have that wrong. It was not made up, Evan is an honorable man and protected his sources who may have gotten in trouble for sharing the information. It mostly coincides with what I saw in three decades on the street. Junk science, thats funny. Global Warming is junk science, M&S is the collection and analysis of information. Trusting your life to only shooting jello is applicable if you ever get attacked by the blob. The study you linked is interesting, in that, he tested 1 load for 38 and one for 357 magnum (which was a mid level load) and drew his conclusion from that for these calibers. He tested 16 loads for the 9mm, hmm.

    To the OP those 115 +P Corbons are duplicates of the old Illinois State Police load which set the standard. The US Border Patrol used an identical load (9BPLE) for agents who carried 9mm's when it was allowed. It worked VERY well. It was better that the 110 Grn 357 magnum load and almost as good ast the 125 grain 357 magnum load in actual shootings.

    I keep a dedicated HD gun, a Glock 17, loaded with the plain JHP+P load and I don't worry much about it. I like the way it performed in my non-scientific barrier tests. If it's reliable in your gun and you like the performance, go for it.
