    Mas,

    What are your thoughts on this round for carry ammunition?

    I only know of one shooting with it, reported by my colleague John Farnam, and it worked fine there. It certainly does well in ballistic gelatin testing.

    I'm partial to rounds with substantial street track records. In the Cor-Bon line, my .40 S&W load of choice would be the 135 grain JHP at 1300 foot-seconds. It tends to deliver a wound track about ten inches deep, but extremely wide, and has proven to be excellent as a "manstopper." Most armed citizen confrontations tend to be "up close and personal" without intervening cover, and this sort of performance is well suited to that kind of situation.

    Best,
    Mas
