    Nice! Thanks for sharing. I like a little less in .40 to better control the recoil, especially on follow up shots. I seem to shoot best (in G27) with Gold Sabers and Win. Ranger subsonic when it comes to .40 S&W.

    Why say that? The Feds are using a 135 gr slug...whereas the other 2 are using 180 gr slugs..??? Nothing surprising to me at least???

    Good report. I have stuck with Speer Gold Dots for a number of years because they have worked well in everything I have shot them in. All my bottom feeders from .380 to .45ACP have never choked on one yet. I have shot enough over time to know the accuracy of them and I feel secure in my choice.

    Pardon the hell out of me. I didn't notice the different weight bullets.

    I made the assumption that he was doing a comparison between different brands of similar cheap ammo.

    I almost posted the same thing, but went back to look thinking they were +P or something. It took me a moment to notice why there was such a difference. Heck, I should have caught it right off since I reload, and didn't.
