    I use Pow'r Ball for my Sig P239, which is finicky about feeding hollow point ammo. Problem solved.

    I was hoping for some opinions as to the stated effectiveness of the round. It's a pretty light/fast round at only 100gr. Do you think it'll be more effective that say a 124gr +P hollow point?

    That is the beauty of this ammo in other guns as well.
    I shot a soggy fair sized stump with one in .45acp, stump disappeared.

    I use either Pow'r Ball, or the Federal Expanding point FMJ. This eliminates the possibility of a hollow point plugging with the clothing, which prevents expansion. This is especially important in 0mm. Plus, they tend to function as well as FMJ.
