Corbon's feed well in Glock's?

    So I went down to my local gunshop today and found a single box of Corbon 90gr+p 9mm. I have always been curious about this round. Even though I prefer 124gr., which is what my Gold Dot's are in, I picked the box up.

    I know Corbon is known for good ammo, what I don't know is how well they feed in a Glock and what to expect from a 90gr. bullet.

    My theory is that the round won't penetrate very much, which considering I live in an apartment, that is ideal.

    Anyways, what do you guys think?


    Sorry if this is off topic. I wasn't sure if I should post this in the Caliber discussion forum but it pertains to feeding in Glock's so figured it would be fine.

    No issues in my 3rd Gen 9mms & 3rd & 4th Gen 23s. It didn't feed 100% in my Glock 30 though.

    I carry 147+p+ Corbons in my 2nd Gen G19. I would not consider anything else. This round and barrel are married for life! Very accurate and superb performance. feeds like FMJ.

    Thanks guys, I guess 90gr isn't anything to be concerned with either and will preform just fine.

    The 90 gr Cor Bon actually has the highest velocity and ft/lbs energy of all their SD loads. I would think penetrate would be very deep.

    While the 90 grain rocket load has good numbers, it has been shown to penetrate under the FBI recommended minimums in standardized testing. So fast and a lightly constructed light bullet; this is to be expected.

    But I've found them to cycle reliably and to be very accurate.

    It's interesting how this round is shorter than most 9mm. It looks like a .380 in a 9mm casing

    Hello,

    I read this several years ago and I believe it is worth your time.

    http://www.gunthorp.com/Terminal Ballistics as viewed in a morgue.htm

    The author talks about the value of bullet weight, which implies that light-weight is not good for self defense.

    For apartment living, or where ever over-penetration is a concern, a shotgun might be a better option (e.g. 16 or 20 gauge). Just a thought!

    Jim

    I've tested the 165 grain classic line of hollow point ammo from Corbon. It has fed flawlessly in Gen 3 G22, G23, and G27.

    Cor-bon 125gr. +P is probably the best mixture of muzzle energy and velocity for a 9mm round.

    I've put about 250 rounds of it through my Glock without a problem.

    I use PowR-Ball in my G17 and G21. Works fine.

    I've shot some very old stuff I found while cleaning out my Mom's storage closet. Look at the price on the box of 20 rounds. My brother said he bought some of that years ago, and it fed and shot just fine through my G20SF.

    Never had an issue although I've never tried the 90gr. Heck, I didn't even know they made a 90 gr round.

    a 90 gran cor-bon....interesting......

    although i would not want to line up to get shot with one, i would think the penetration on that round would be very shallow, but would fragment like a frag-grenade inside a person......

    would not mind shooting some, though, but with the price of cor-bon, i would have to pass on that

    Here is some shots of them, I compared the round side by side to a Speer Gold Dot 124+p gr.

    No, not at all....shotugns are notorious over-penetrators. Please be careful with what you suggest, people here will take bad information and run with it.

    Old? These are old. These are the original Glaser Safety Slugs in .357 magnum.

    They're more than 40 years old. Back in the early 70's this "improved" ammunition was all there was with the exception of the original Super Vel. After these 2, defensive ammunition grew by leaps and bounds.

    I carried these Glasers as a LEO, followed by four 158 grain semi-wadcutters that I handloaded. We couldn't carry auto loaders back then.

    Now, I no longer handload, and I use Corbon exclusively.
