    Put that pic in the thread about 45 FMJ for SD. Nah, don't waste your time.
    Any decent 9mm HP expands bigger than 45 FMJ.
    My wife carries a Glock 19 with 147 HST - as a litmus test I used a ported Shield and shot 147+P HST through 4 layer denim into water filled gallon jugs, it expanded.
    I'm not inclined to disarm for a concert, game, (entertainment) and I ain't going on a plane or cruise.

    Strange that the Black Talon and PDX1 look the same except for the color of the bullet.

    Yup. HST is still the go to. Gold Dot and PDX-1 are right there. I've never done any research on SIG brand bullets, but they look good at first glance too.

    Also depends on the caliber. Weights and caliber often throw a bullet that works well in one caliber to really poor in another caliber or weight.
