    It's always a "ammo guess" for me. Everyone knows and tells me "what is the best" in print.

    My Beretta 92 Centurion "digests" anything I put in the mag.
    Currently, both mags are filled with 14 rounds (one under capacity) of 147 grain Golden Saber.
    The 92 "likes" these rounds. Yes, I know "heavy" 147's are currently out of favor.
    But, my have no feed problems. No on target problems. Any "problem" is just me.

    I just got a .38 Special S&W 642 snubby for CCW. Any ammo is currently hard to find.
    I have it loaded with Federal Hydra-Shok 110 grain "low recoil" JHP. It's what I could find.

    I'll live with this. I added CR laser grips to help me put the bullets where they belong.
    That's the most important point of the gun and the "ammo" that's loaded, isn't it ?
    Can you double tap the chest area, and then go for the finish with a head shot ?

    If you can't, then who cares about "the cartridge performance" ?

    falchunt, TYVM for that foto. Must have been a lot of work to produce the data.

    I'm really impressed with the apparent performance of all those bullets. If I ever have to fire a bullet in anger, I hope it performs as well.

    Could you pls explain what 2 X 12" Deep Water Jugs means?

    jeffreybehr-

    First of all, I sincerely hope you never, ever, fire your weapon in anger. You should never have to fire your weapon in anger. I believe what you meant to say is "self defense".

    2x12 water jugs (if I understand correctly) is exactly that: a 2" wide x 12 " tall water jug, probably similar to a pringles can. I would guess that they lay the jug down with the smaller side facing the shooter. I thought that this diagram was pretty impressive myself.

    Yes, self-defense, and I imagine it'd be more 'in fright' than 'in anger'.

    This research and display aren't yours? If so, could you share the source?

    These pics may help; the PDX1 looks VERY impressive in my waterjug tests.


    The PDX1, and to a lesser extent the Gold Dot, have more core material attached to the opened petals of the jacket's nose. It's easier to see in this pic.


    Altho these waterjug tests present rather easy material to the bullets, and their performances in more-difficult material (such as the bone-laden bodies of badguys) may be substantially different, I'd trust any of the top-row bullets for my PD loads. Since I already have LOTS of Hornady XTPs, I'll stick with them.

    The Winchester Ranger T-series are awesome.. surprised they weren't put on the list.

    Here's a video comparing the HST, Ranger T-Series, and Black Talon... gives a way better perspective to the expansions.

    They weren't included in my tests because you didn't send me any cartridges in 40S&W to test.

    Black Talon

    I have 8 boxes of 9mm Black Talon ammo. I havenít seen any discussion on Black Talon. Back in the day there were many glowing reports about how good it was. Donít know if that was just hype or it really performed that well. I just bought a Cobra 9mm Derringer to tide me over until my P229 9mm barrel and my KelTec P-11 come in. Does anyone have any information on reliability?

    I realized that the question was vague. I wanted information on reliability of the Black Talon ammo. However, if anyone has information on the reliability of the Cobra 9mm Derringer, that would also be welcome.
    Thanks.
