    It's my understanding...

    that Cor-Bon typically uses powders specially formulated for low muzzle flash so you should be fine in that respect. I used to carry Cor-Bon 200gr.+P loads exclusively but changed a couple of years ago. I now use the Taurus Hex Bullet 185gr. solid copper. It gives equal expansion, if not better, in a standard pressure load. There's less felt recoil and muzzle flash. There's nothing wrong with the Cor-Bon load but if you can get the same performance without beating up your weapon, to me, that's the way to go.

    That brand usually costs a bit more, doesn't it?

    MSRP is $19.95 per the link...

    posted by Blastard but I've bought them for for a couple of bucks less. The bullets are now available from BarnesX or Midway but you can buy factory loads as cheap as you can buy the bullets. They're only available in .45 even though they were saying all calibers would be onthe market. Solid copper bullets for all calibers are available so if you wantd 9mm or .40 you would have to load them. They're well worth checking out. The Taurus link a couple of replies earlier should take you to some wholesalers, IIRC.

    Gene,
    What are you going to shoot them in ? I use them in 3" Kimbers to XD45acp TAC..very happy with them. I can pick them up at around $16.00 a box here. Local dealer gives me 15% off his shelf price.

    Theose +P will get your attention. I went to Corbon Compact 165gr DPX non +P. This load is for under 4" guns but in Commander will hit about 1100fps. With min. recoil. They run in all my 45's gust fine. I also use DPX in my 380's

    Can't think who we both might know from that era. Maybe Glenn Enlow or Delores or Doris Nesbitt? "Flab" Smith maybe? Not sure when they graduated. PM if you know an of these before we get too far off topic.
