    Has anyone tested this round for expansion and penetration. Based off the Hornady website it looks to be loaded hot, 1175fps. Supposed to expand through everything... Anyone have the inside info on it?

    There are plenty in my area and I've only fired about 20-30 rounds of it. They do pack a slightly harder punch than target ball ammo. Groups have gotten more consistent with the Hornady rounds. This was shot with an XD subcompact though. Groups were fired at 7, 10, and 15 yards. I have not tried to test expansion. Though, if I remember, when I go out to shoot a tree or something and see how well it works.
