    Im not very familiar with that company. Is that like someone that reloads? Or what? They seem to have higher velocities than normal. Tell me about them

    If I recall correctly, the person that started the company was a member here that started offering hot loads in 10mm and then expanded to other calibers. Most of his loads are faster and more powerful than any "factory" load, yet still within specs.

    Back in my .40sw days, anything reputable in 180gr: Gold Dot, HST, Ranger, Golden Saber, etc.

    Those 155gr and 165gr loads are hot stuff. Too much "snap" on the recoil while offering nothing in performance IMO.
