    Just shot some of this new ammo today and I gotta say I was impressed. Felt recoil was less than half of the 115 gr range ammo I normally use. Shooting with my LC9s. Accuracy was superb and no malfunctions. It's 80 gr +P . Anyone else use this? I am going to start carrying this for now.

    I was wondering how this bullet would do in a 45 since many 45 semi autos have problems cycling with lighter bullets. Glad to hear your results were good. I just might buy some for my Kimber UCII.
    I was wondering if it came in 357 and I see it does. I will have to make a trip to my LGS real soon. If it can cut down the 357 recoil but still perform about the same then that would be great for my LCR.
    Well if it is available in 357 I am not seeing it as yet.
    I was near my LGS today so I stopped in to check on this ammo. The clerk said he heard of them but they don't have any. The assistant manager asked me about them and then he went in the back room. I am guessing he went to check on the ammo and possibly ordering some.

    My question is, how good is it when it hits? We've discussed it on RT before, and it seems like a gimmick to me. But if it actually works I'm very interested in it. Thanks for the report, glad to hear it functions well.
