    I bought a box of each type in the 9mm flavor. I collect some and shoot the rest. I found the recoil to be somewhat snappy and it functioned fine but as for ballistics, it's Extreme Hype. It does, however, handle water jugs fairly well. Just hope you're attached by the Culligan man if you decide to carry them as a defensive round

    This ammo doesn't seem any better than any other ammo, and is too damn expensive.

    I think I'd characterize The Box O' Truth results a little differently: It performs substantially worse than quality conventional hollowpoint ammunition, and is too damn expensive.

    Kinda what I thought, way overhyped,thanks for the link. Looks like my favorite round (Winchester Ranger T) are the standard to beat.

    It's pretty hard for me to justify over $2.00 round for ammo that just doesn't perform significantly better than other premium defensive ammo. I'll stick with Winchester Ranger SXT (.45ACP) at $.38/round.

    Extreme Shock has great marketing, for a medicore perfromance from the testing I have seen.

    EFMJ (and others)

    www.goldenloki.com has some 9mm gel tests through a KelTec P11 (among others).

    I've tested Extreme Shock in my own 2.5gal, denim covered water jug tests and it was quite impressive in 9mm.

    Fancy ammo is great and probably necessary in sub-calibers like 9mm, but in 230gr 45acp, there are a LOT of choices out there that get the job done REAL well for a LOT less.

    Wink They shoudl rename it....

    to 'Extreme Sh*t'.

    It basically guarantees that it will not meet FBI protocols for penetration depth (i.e. reaching the vitals reliable, and from most angles)...yet will still penetrate several sheets of drywall (with the drywall clogging the HP 's mouth...forming an FMJ-type projectile). It's the worst of both worlds. On top of that, it's waaaay too expensive.
