    Is Magsafe Ammo any good? Or just sticking with a good old made American hollow point better.

    It has it's apps, but everyday carry isn't one of them. I should know... I helped the late Joe Zambone (founder and designer of Magsafe), test them all, before he sold the business.

    The initial penetration produces a tremendous wound, due to the extreme velocity. The prob is that the penetrating pellets of birdshot; no matter how big---don't do basically jack-squat on an individual path.

    What good are they, if they blow a huge hole in a bad guy's arm, but never make it to the "boiler room!!! :whistling:

    Also keep in mind, they are too expensive to practice with, the accuracy was definately, only up close & personal.

    Lastly, Joe was trying to improve on conventional hollow-points from the late 80's/very early 90's. It was a noble quest. The hollow-points of that era; especially the 9mm 147gr. simply did not work!

    Today things have changed. Almost everything works to a great degree. Magsafe was popular, in a time when "exotic" self-defence ammunition was all the rage. Magsafe was better than most, but still there's better choices today.
