    Despite my best Googl-Fu, I can find no published data on this round's performance against actual human bad guys. Millions of gel tests but no street data. Do you know of any and if so, what were the results? How did it compare to the track record of the classic FBI load? I know it's new tech and performs great in gelatin but I don't want to be the Beta tester in my first gunfight! I also wouldn't want to be the first one to jump out of an airplane with a brand new parachute design. Thanks!

    Good reports out of New York, Illinois, and California.
