    1475/483 9mm

    I don't know about you guys, but I think Pow'R balls 100gr 9mm +P @1475fps and 483 FTLBS is some serious business

    I understand that they're supposed to feed like ball ammo too. I'm gonna have to try some. Does anyone use this ammo in 9mm?
    One ought never to turn one's back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half.

    That was your page huh? I saw that earlier today when I googled the Pow'r Ball. Well done
    I'm just thinking that for a self defense round, this SUPER-SONIC 100gr, has what it takes to get the job done about as best as you can for the 9mm. IMHO

    Hello. It seems to be fine in the gelatin tests, but I'm hearing of very shallow penetration on animals shot with it. I have not yet done this nor have I heard of any being used on felons so I honestly don't know.

    It appears promising to me as a lower penetration/maximum damage round and one that I'd prefer over the Glaser.

    Time will tell if the animals that were shot were flukes or if some tweaking needs to be done. I do believe that in a straight-on frontal shot to the chest, the round would be effective.

    Best.
