    Hey Ponti,
    someone else was selling this type of ammo a few weeks ago. This is not seen too often. I noted this on their post. I'll post this on yours also. This is GREAT ammo. I used to issue this round out to the officers who still carried revolvers. This round gave real good expansion when we fired them thru water jugs and wet newspaper. a little flash but the ballistics are pretty good for this round. I issued this because we had one guy still carrying an model 10!;P
    We fired this out of 686s,66s,and even a model 60. A little bite out of a 60 but not bad at all. I would say even lighter than a 158 +P. A rogue coyote got hit by this round as if it was hit by lightning out of a 686 at about 30 yards. That is one of the best shots I have ever seen by anyone with a revolver. I felt pretty inadequate after that even with a Glock 22 loaded with 155 grain hydrashoks.
    I still have about 150 rounds of this, if not id jump on it. 14.00 a box is a steal.
