    I ignore anything that advertises like a comic book.

    Really nice if you can find them. If you have a gun that is finicky with hollow-point ammo these will often work like a charm. That little synthetic ball moves smoothly up the ramp and, quite possibly, gives you better initial penetration. This series of bullets really expand too. Nobody in Alaska (at least in Fairbanks) seem to carry these so I've not carried them for a while. Great bullets at a premium price. You get what you pay for here, though.

    I use Pow'rball (Glasser or Corbon, they're the same thing), or the Federal Expanding Point Full Metal Jacket. Both will expand and not be plugged by clothing, and both feed as well as FMJ.

    They were originally designed as inexpensive practice ammo to simulate the Glaser frangibles at a cheaper price. The solid lead core is cheaper than the pre-fragmented birdshot core of the Glaser Blue and Silver. Somewhere along the way someone figured out they could market it as SD ammo, too. If I had a gun that wouldn't reliably feed JHP, it would be an option.

    I use it for my Taurus 357, I carry two speed strips and having this ammo is much easier on my pockets than standard JHP.
