    DoubleTap verus Buffalo Bore Ammo

    Shooters:

    I am interested in two ammos for home protection: (1) DoubleTap & (2) Buffalo Bore ammo! I am looking for your thoughts on what ammo is more consistant in its stated test results as far as both velocity & expansion?
    And out of these two ammos what ammo do you prefer & why?


    P.S. This ammo will be shot out of a semi-auto handgun!

    I like Double Tap in 45ACP, and Buffalo Bore in 38 Special +P. Both use the Gold Dot bullet (look for Bonded Defense, or the like in the description), so I just look for the higher velocity, and click on BUY. The controlled Expansion JHPs are XTPs, as I recall.

    I've ordered a couple of times from both. Both did OK getting me my ammo. I also recently bought some 357 bullets (200gr hardcast) from Double Tap, and have just started to load them.

    I do not have a Chrony, but recoil is consistent with a notable increase in POP. I have no doubt that it's legit.

    Accuracy seemed as good as anything else I was shooting.

    I recently switched to HSTs from Hydro Shoks. Read a good review that convince me that these were right for my needs.

    If you look at apples to apples specs between these two, it seems DoubleTap provides better performance at a lower price.

    All reviews I've seen suggest both are high quality products.

    Personally, I carry DoubleTap 124gr 9mm +P. This round uses the Gold Dot bullet.

    Also, if you do a search here, you'll find some reviews.
