    Very impressive 9mm hard barrier tests with a proprietary solid copper HP (not Barnes). For those that are worried about hard barriers it doesn't get any better than this with a handgun:

    A great test of what this bullet does AFTER penetrating the intended target indoors:

    I just couldnt bring myself to use such a light 9mm load.

    I think if I was in the market for a solid copper bullet I would stick to the DPX.

    If you want to research this concept a bit more I can recommend a book by Tom Halstead called "Reduced Load Ballistics".

    [ame=""]Reduced Load Ballistics Research Manual: Tom Halstead AAGSR: Kindle Store@@AMEPARAM@@[/ame]

    I am not sure that I will go along with everything Mr. Halstead concludes but I can not knock his research... The man has done his homework!

    Anyway it is interesting reading and research, a 166 page paperback and for just under $10 at, it's worth the read.

  4. Has Corbon went back to Barnes bullets?
    They were making there own. Performance with these bullets was/is dismal..
    Last batch I had around five months ago. It was a box of their own. In gel a. 380 would have done better.

    Corbon makes their own NORMAL JHP's, however their SCHP's are made by Barnes.

    Why was their performance dismal? :dunno:

    I use a 115gr JHP +p+ 9mm, and I am concerned about whether of not it will expand and stop in a sternum bone in the chest. There's no way that I am going to uses a lighter, slower bullet in my G17.
