    Sounds like a DPX type clone. Or maybe it came first. I've never seen it in a store, but if I did I'd buy it. If they were offering DPX ammo for cheaper I'd be all over it for carry ammo.

    I bought a box of those the other day in .45acp. They are the old Barnes style. I haven't fired them yet, but I can't wait to try. :)

    They look just like the Magtech First Defense rounds. Will be looking forward to seeing what kind of results they yield when tested.

    Hint, Hint, whenever someone shoots them post some pics.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    I plan on doing that. I bought a bunch of different .45acp rounds (listed in the .45acp poll) and plan on wetpack testing them all in the early spring. By then, I should have enough newspaper saved up, and my Federal HST's and Winchester Ranger T-Series should have arrived.

    It is what I carry in mine. I bought a few boxes and have tested them out against the offerings from Cor-Bon before choosing which I would trust with my life. Less expensive too.

    Sorry I havn't responded. I had back surgery Wednesday, so time sitting at the computer wil be sporadic at best. So you like them better than CorBon? What's expansion like?

    There is another thread here on this subject.

    What grain did you order? I have the 230 gr +P. Very accurate in my XD and I can't wait till decent weather to do some expansion tests also.

    230 grain, of course. Even though the smaller grains usually have greater velocity, I still like the big ones. I ordered the HST1's which are supposed to be the +P rounds. I can't wait. I just found out my Ranger T-Series (RA45T) are on the way and I should have them Wednesday. No ETA on the +P's (RA45TPs)

    If memory serves me, Taurus copper bullets came out a few years before DPX or the Magtech variant. I've only seen them in .45 ACP. I'm not sure if they had any other calibers or not.
