    The problems I had were with rounds in the blue and white box but, I tried them again on the advice of a friend and had the same kind of problems with the red box.

    I don't trust them. I won't carry them since I do not trust them and that's that.

    I won't carry a gun I am not 1000% sure I can trust my life and the lives of my family with and I feel the same way about the ammo and magazines in that gun. And for me, that means Cor-Bon ammo is on the no carry list.

    corbon Pow'Rball problems

    I'm getting out of the +p business so I had a box of .45 pow'r'balls
    and decided to shoot them up. All went bang with good accuracy.

    I have shot probably 200 rounds of .45 powerball, 100+ of 45 DPX and at least 200 rounds of 9 mm DPX through 5 different guns, including a Hi point 45 and a kel tec P 11, neither of which is known for hard strikes. Never had a misfire, failure to fire or any other problem with any of them. DPX is the most accurate round I have found for my P 11. As far as I am concerned Corbon is completely reliable.

    I've never had a problem with the Pow'rball ammo. I use either Pow'rball, or Federal EFMJ in my carry guns. Never a failure to fire. But, carry what works for you. Defensive ammo is just too important to risk having ammo that won't go bang when you need it to.

    IIRC, and don't hold me to this... But when Corbon first came on the scene, they were great, reliable, and had no problems... I shot Corbon for about a year. Then at some point, they underwent some management problems and some quality control issues that I believe to this day, they have yet to recover.

    They have attempted to regain their early reputation by introducing some new rounds like the Powerball, but I think they are still, not what they used to be, back in their first 10 years.

    Shot up my 9mm pow"R"balls today; biggest problem was ducking when they blew stuff to pieces.

    I have a box of Pwrball and also a box of Barnes Tactical HP 80 gr for my Bersa Thunder .380 but have not fired any yet.
    I use Hornady Critical Defense for range and carry and they work well. I need to try the Pwrball and Barnes to see how they work but I would like to shoot 2 or 3 boxes of each to get a better idea of how dependable they are.

    Pow'r-ball has not only functioned perfectly in all my guns but it's also proven to be extremely accurate. That said, it doesn't matter if it runs in my guns if it won't run in yours!

    I probably won't buy any more. I bought it back when the scare was at its peak and there was no other carry ammo to be had. But since my stock level of Federal HST is pretty good I can't imagine using the Pow'r'ball stuff again. The super-light bullet isn't really my cup of tea but it was better than running ball.

    I'm going to be "that guy" and tell you, you need to carry real ammo.

    Federal HST, Speer Gold Dot or Winchester Ranger-T/PDX-1.

    Really? 2 pages and nobody made any sarcastic comments about how the OP is carrying extra ammo in "clips"?

    You guys are off your game... :)
