    It's hard to keep tabs on your barrels, when they're made in Korea.

    Anyone do any gel tests with them? I'd like to see what a 80 gr. pistol bullet does at 2120fps.

    Seing how most 80 grain bullets were designed for the .380, they will likely fragment explosively it they are of the HP design.:wow:

    I tested a 121 grain JHP from ZERO that were designed for the 38Super and they will flatten out even at 1400 fps in water jugs.

    No doubt lead ones would, but the 80gr. bullet I was referring to was the copper TAC-XP. The petals will certainly sheer off a 9x25 speeds, but I think the copper base will remain intact.

    Here's that .380 80gr. at 1,545 fps. http://www.shootingillustrated.com/index.php/13391/9-mm-doubletap-80-grain-tac-xp/ It still retained 75% of its mass.

    If it only retained 75% @ 1545 fps can you imagine the fragmentation at 2000 fps :wow:

    Keep in mind that those are 100% copper bullets, they can shed the petals or actully fold them back beyond their max diameter. To me they are cost prohibitive to shoot them as they are pricey for the box count...Also these bullets ar longer than there lead core counterparts by weight. That extra length takes up powder space and raise chamber pressures if not adjusted.

    Underwood normally stocks 2 varieties (125 gr. TMJ and JHP), but is out of stock (like everything else).

    Double Tap has a bunch of varieties (80 gr. Barnes through 180 gr. WFNGC), and not showing out of stock (FWIW). Spendy at above/below $1/rd, depending on quantity.

    I've not tried either, I roll my own.

    6-b-kwik, the 9x25 barrel I have for my G-29 3.78" don't bring the best performance from this cartridge that it is capable of. Even my 5.0" barrel for my S&W1006 is still on the short side. The performance from the longer barrels (6") brings it alive. However it is still a neat round to mess with.

    Double Tap may still have some ammo in stock...Best of luck! :)
