    Here is some interesting info I found on the Federal Tactical ammo.

    It seems the only advantage to the Tactical Ammo has is automobile windshield penetration.

    For the entire article
    www.thegunzone.com/miami-ammo.html

    When Federal came up with their "Tactical" bonded core handgun ammunition the nasty letters rolled in again. Elitist Federal... and their lackey... me... were conspiring to prevent the "knuckle dragging mouth-breathers" from an adequate means of penetrating automobile windshields. This was the only thing that the Tactical ammo did better for in other test events it was on a par with conventional ammo. The complainers forgot that civilians rarely have that justification.

    Try here http://mahsupplies.net/ I have purchased Winchester Ranger from here in the past. He also carries Federal. Great service and prompt delivery.
