I have limited my options to these. I have heard good things about pdx1 but like the concept of critical defense. I have a .380 and tested some Corbon jhp into jugs and all three time I shot it went through all 6 jugs and the denim. I assume that was because it did not expand so I tested hornady in the Sam regards and each bullet functioned great. I also tested it into homemade gelatin with denim and liked the results. But .40 is new to me and I do not want it clogging. Any input appreciated. Posted from an iPhone Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
