    Sorry about that Jeffrey, I somehow missed that. I received that picture in an email from a coworker, who snagged it off of another forum. I have since done a little bit of testing myself but it seems almost impossible to get my hands on different brands of ammo. I can only find about 3 different brands...

    Since I posted the 40-caliber-bullet results, I've switched to 45GAP and tested a couple. Since the Gold Dot excelled in the .40-cal. test, I bought those bullets and also Winchester Silvertip ammo.


    Again the Gold Dot performed excellently, and until someone sends me some 45-caliber bullets to test, I'm finished.

    Here are my cartridges.

    I've used Speer Gold Dots and Federal Hyra shoks for years. I may not have given it too much thought though since in a .45 I didn't think there would be a significant difference in performance.

    Anyone have a range report on the Winchester PDX1s?

    I stumbled across this thread and posted my vote for the Barnes DPX bullet (Corbon). I was surprised at the low ranking it has overall. I am more than willing to change rounds if the other stuff is better. Is the DPX just another hype deal the old man has fallen for? Educate me please.
    Regards,
    Eli

    Depends on the load. try the GOLD DOT SHORT BARREL versions. designed to expand at the reduced velocities of shorter barrels.

    I was advised years ago to shoot what the local police shoot and now that's usually HydraShoks or Winchester PDX1. If it's okay for them to shoot bad guys with these loads it will be easier to convince a jury it was okay for you to do the same in self defense. Most of these loads group well enough from any pistol I've owned to easily do the job. As for downrange ballistics, if you hit something vital anything will work.

    But over all now. The new hornady FTX bullet, superior controlled expansion. FTX as won every test for over 2 yrs now. Then any bullet in it's class.

    I voted for Federal Hydra-Shok,

    Although I agree with Mike.

    Just about any quality HP round is fine with me.

    And I have several different brands around the house.

    Thanks.
    The Black Talons are very reliable, of course you need to run them for reliability in your chosen handgun. As far as performance, I've read the latest T series are better performers than the older designed Black Talons and their predecessor the SXT.

    Black Talons Are Armor Piercing So They Are Not Worth The Cost To Most People.. High Prices Are Probably The Reason They Are No Longer In Favor!!!

    the black talon are not now and never were armor piercing, perhaps a little research would be of value since its obvious that whats being spewed out is nothing more than the opinions of others.... unless of course you have some video of you shooting black talons thru armor..... any armor.... body armor ..... WTF people? atleast have some idea about the garbage you believe and pass on!
