    Got my new ammo in. Haven't shot this kind before. I usually shoot 115 at the range and carry 124. Will see how this shoots next time I go to the range. Anyone carry this ammo?

    Couldn't find my Speer gold dot short barrel ammo anywhere that I usually carry so I decided to try this. Did see a bunch of gel tests on it and read all I could find about it. That was about all the investigation I could do.

    Got it for 21.67 a box of 25. This price included shipping.
     
  2. That is not a bad price for Hornady defense ammo. I usually carry Remington Golden Saber ammo in all my carry weapons but I do have Hornady in my XD .40.
     
  3. Brat,Icarry Hornady CD in my 40.From what I've seen from recovered bullets[from my back yard] it appears to be a well made bullet.Expansion is good and penetration seems to be a little better than the critical defense load.That's a good price.

    Since I don't know a great deal about this stuff all I can do is look for ballistic videos and information. Then I read all I can. This seemed like a good load. Because I carry a short barrel, I generally carry Speer Gold Dot short barrel ammo. I have found, from my investigations, not all ammo shoots from a short barrel as well as it does from the longer barrels. I thought, this is the place to come for more information :). Thanks
