    Read this http://www.hipowersandhandguns.com/Corbon 9mm 115.htm

    In addition, next time you can save yourself about $55 by buying this. It uses the exact same bullet. Same load different company.

    I've found that the Winchester 124 gr Nato fmj round mimics the recoil characteristics of the Corbon 9mm DPX round very closely. You can then practice for about 25 cents a round and get the same feel.

    I just received my Black Hills Ammunition 9mm 115 grain +P/ Barnes TAC-XP from ammunition to go......

    shot some yesterday, amazing accuracy, controllable recoil and it is now my new carry load.....

    and cheaper than Cor Bon using the same bullet :)

    edit: meant to add i shot it out of my carry gun, Glock 26

    I like it, too. :cool: As I said in the Hot Target Ammo thread, the Win Q4318 mimics the recoil very close. It's a nice cheap alternative for practice. SGAmmo has it on sale.

    I've been shooting/carrying Corbon in my off duty handguns for 21 years and I've never had a problem. Over the last several years I've used it for a couple rifle rounds huntings whitetail and critters and have been very pleased with the outcome. You can get the same bullet for cheaper as mentioned above, but for me and me only, I don't mind paying a little extra for the peace of mind I have with Corbon. I might add that Corbon also is a big supporter of our troops and gives those individuals a very decent discount in personal purchases!
