    Ball ammo works fine out of a 4" barrel. I would not use it for defense unless I had no good ammo available. Good hollow points are always better than ball.

    All I carry in the 45acp is 230gr ball. It will work fine for SD out of any size 45acp. 230gr XTP's are next on my list. But 230 FMJ is 99% of the time.
    About all I carry 'when in town' is a 1911 45acp.



    Good shooting.

    Sorry amigo. I misread your post.


    My opinion of PB for SD would be about the same as carrying a pellet gun.

    I got into a big deal with corbon years ago over this "designer bullet," after i fired one out of a G27 at about 3-5 feet away at an old truck tail gate, and it (the powerball) exploded like a little dirt clod, and only left a very slight ding in the gate. It would have felt like a real hard paintball hit to the skin. They have almost no penetration, and are just not what they are cranked up to be...

    Do your self a favor and stay away from the powerball and the rbcd, or rcbd whatever its called.. It is, my friend, all hype. I promise ya.

    Everything we tried in in, was a miserable fragmenting failure.....



    Stay Safe.
