    Would captioned round be a good one in a G26 for SD? Also would $24.99 be a good price for a box of 50? Thanks for any info.

    For those who prefer the 147 grain subsonic in a 9mm JHP, the SXT is certainly better than any conventional JHP in that weight. I'd still prefer its successor, the Ranger-T, though. The Ranger-T is designed to leave its petals extended after expansion, while they tend to fold back on the SXT before it finishes carving its path.
    best,
