    Why? So you can hunt big game with your 9mm?

    Same as a 5.7 round .. Very very very HV light round .. It will go though armor as small fast and light ..

    Too gimcky for me ... Though the AP part is different

    Lehigh seems to be on the cutting edge of bullet/SD technology. They are pricey, but everything I've seen and heard tends to back it up. I never heard of them before I got my 300 Blackout.
    How much difference is there between terrorism and tyranny?

    His closing statements regarding penetration similar to FMJ rounds does not take into account the wide wound channel. It seems to me that it will act like a broadhead arrow, and cause rapid bleedout, even faster if one round leaves two holes. Maybe 9mm is too hot, but with a .380 it looks more appealing than FMJ or HP.

    Pricey!I'll stick with my carry ammo.A dollar sixty a round way too expensive for me.I 'd have almost a hundred bucks invested to load 3 magazines.I hope the folks buying this stuff realize just how far it penetrates.Another quimick round.I'll
    stick with main stream self defense ammo.I can only think about going to court trying to defend yourself using this stuff called extreme penetration.

    The purpose of this ammo escapes me. It is not suitable for SD use unless one only uses it in wide-open, un-populated spaces.

    I'm with Aborigine on this one. I think it could have an application for some of the lesser calibers. I'd like to see some penetrations tests in .380 acp and .32 auto calibers.

    posible for a 380 but for a 9MM.. To much of a chance for over penatration and hitting someone in the background.

    I'd be more worried about complete misses. The XP is nothing more than an expensive (pure copper barstock) SWC and we all know how penetrative they are.

    Meh. Better options out there.
