.44 Specials, TCJ HP vs JHP?
After waiting a few weeks for ammo from Ammo Direct, I received my long awaited .44 Special rounds, I noticed they are TCJ HP. I have never used a Total copper jacket HP before, and I tried looking for some ballistic info, but did not find much info. I'm afraid they will not mushroom and end up a "thru and thru". This is not good for bystanders, especially those behind the intended miscreant.
They are 240 grain TCJ HP's. Kinematics Research. I also have some 9mm TCJ HP's. Worse case, I guess I can use them for target practice. I plan on ordering some more 9mm soon, only have 200 rounds on hand now. Anyone have an idea on how TCJ HP's perform as self defense rounds??
Also, Ammunition to Go, in Texas, shipped within a week of order, maybe I got lucky. I tend to like them a lot....
