Gonna upset some of you fanboys (Gold Dot that is) but I don't care. Ordered 2 boxes of 165gr JHP from Sportsman's Guide. New production Cor Bon. Got them today and opened the box only to be severely pissed at what I saw. They were GOLD DOTS!!! I hate Gold Dots and think they are worthless for expansion. Right up there with Hornady; might as well be FMJ. Now, Cor Bon has long been known for the gaping Sierra JHP's used in most of their line, the 165gr .40 loads included. That is what I thought I was getting, as there is no mention of the use of Gold Dots. My first reaction was throw it in the garbage I was so bent, but it was like ~$60 with shipping for these 2 worthless boxes. Thought about it and decided to call Cor Bon. Talked to a nice guy in Tech. Asked when/why they switched to Gold Dots and that I would have never ordered them if I had known that was what was used. He agreed 100% about the GD being inferior for expansion and the hallmark of the company had always been the Sierras. He said that they went with GD's because Sierra couldn't meet the current demand! Not that it would be a permanent change, just for now. I was like WTF? He was actually pretty cool and gave me his name and told me to call back in about 2 months (early May) and if at that time they had switched back to Sierras he would swap out my ammo one for one. I wrote his info down and paper-clipped it to my calendar in my bedroon for May. At least a fair offer seeing as how I bought it from Sportsman's Guide. I will take him up on his offer. Now I have 2 worthless-to-me, high-priced boxes of ammo I have to sit on for 2 months. Sounds like Cor Bon is going the way of Double Tap and Buffalo Bore in switching bullet types back and forth unadvertised. WTF is up with these companies?
