45 ACP Stopping Power - Shootings History
Cor-Bon DPX .45 ACP
I personally trust and depond on Corbon DPX in both this chambering and bullet weight as well as in 9MM too. Out of 5" barrels.
But for HD I do not and would not suggest it. Reason being due to it's well known capability to penetrate hard surfaces.
For HD as a pistol round I keep two mags specific to that as chambered one in Winchester 'Personal Protection' .230 gr. lead JHP while I have a second handgun loaded with Federal Hydrashok .230 gr. lead JHP.
Last thing I want is to have a round that misses penetrate the varying thickness and density skin of my residence and pierce some other persons.
The DPX bullet/projectile is by design adept at doing so while lead JHP is very much less so than that of the DPX bullet/projectile, which is basically a solid copper sabot projectile.
