    Seems most folks were right , claiming it is expensive for the performance.

    As a rule of thumb, I avoid hyped, trendy, uber tactical ammo. Ranger T, Golden Sabers or Gold Dots for me.

    I'd wondered about those rounds ever since I saw the ad that claiming one 9mm round brought down a Russian Boar. Uh huh ...

    Seeing the Fang Face fold in on istelf in the first two shots didn't overly impress me either.

    $1.83/round? I don't think so. I'm sticking with SXT's and will keep Rule #4 in mind as much as possible.

    Thanks for the report.

    Just remember there's not such thing as the magic bullet.
    Shot placement is key.

    Extreme Shok

    Sadly, looks like their ammo is not worth the $1.85 per round.
    What is even sadder is that the T~Shirts they are selling on their web site look like bunch of Tactical Blues Brothers are ready to go on the warpath.

    Thanks for the heads-up, Rocky.

    I thought their packaging looked squirrely anyway

    Heck, I'm too cheap to buy the new bonded Golden Saber. Around here it's $20 for 20 or $25 rounds.

    I'm sticking with EFMJ and Black Hills.

    Just put a post-it note on the box of whatever ammo you're using and write whatever you want on that -- like "UltraSuper" or "Expands to 6 inch diameter, tested on Elephants" --
    Good way to save money..... I'm with you guys, the more some ammo is advertised as being THE stuff, the less I want to play.
