    I carry a springfield emp 9mm. Ammo reliability is one of my concerns, obviously. I don't know anyone that has tried this ammunition it seems a bit gimmicky to me, wondering if I could have your thoughts on it. It appears as though it would feed as a typical fmj round, but they are very expensive and I wonder if they expand reliably. thank you

    The Pow'rBall has worked very well in lab testing, but I don't know of any actual shootings with it.

    FWIW, my EMP has worked 100% with every JHP I've put through it including +P+, and I suspect the same will be true of yours.

    best,
