My new carry piece is an all steel, bobtail 1911 commander. I've decided to use Ranger T's.
I bought a couple boxes of the regular 230gr. RA45T, and a couple boxes of the RA45TP (+p). I was very accurate with both. I could feel that the +p had more energy in the recoil, but I shot both equally well. I'm trying to decide which to use.
Here's my question. Intuitively, I would guess that the "+p" version would penetrate deeper and open larger. This assumption of mine is supported by Winchester's data. http://www.winchester.com/lawenforce...g/testing.aspx
However, I've read that the contrary is true: that the non +p version penetrates deeper because it doesn't open as quickly.
Which is true?
