    Looks like my choice didn't expand so readily or consistently.
    Good info - thanks!

    yeah I was surprised at some of the results. I'm a bit more proud of my 9mm choice now.

    And what are you using at this time?
    I have been carrying the Hornady Critical Defense for some time.

    Ditto, in 9mm (I actually have the same thing they tested with as well, which I really like).

    Looks like I've made some good choices with the Hornady XTP 147gr in 9mm and 230 XTP in 45 Auto. I also shoot the 200 grain XTP in 10mm. My hand load velocities are almost exactly the same as their tests.

    Can a Mod make this a sticky or a "resource" so it'll be easier to find in the future ?
    I'd hate to see this disappear in the stacks.

    @TheJackBull Great find ! [coo]

    Federal 124 gr HST... consistent expansion. not the greatest penetration on the list but it opens up every time.
