The exact process is like, totally secret and proprietary.

Upon striking the body of your target, a rabid badger is unleashed through a process that involves a lot of really hard to understand math and physics calculations, and possibly some magic. The resulting stopping power goes beyond devastating, and is actually completely unable to be measured. In every ballistic test conducted, the badger ate the gelatin block, and then quickly turned on the testers.

My cores use very expensive laboratory grade badgers that are 99.9% pure, and 100% insane with rabies.

The shock of a rabid badger bursting from a teammate's body and then going totally nuts adds a psychological warfare element unmatched by any other ammunition maker in the industry today. To further enhance this, I took a cue from the A-10 Warthog, and painted a scary face on each and every round.

Now I understand the problem. I bought XFBR's! eXtra Fuzzy Bunny Rounds. Not so scary when the round turns into a big ol fuzzy bunny and hops off after giving the bad guy a nose nuzzle.

best are

Federal HST 124gn +P

or

Winchester Ranger T's 124gn +P
Winchester PDX Bonded 124gn +P

Basically the winchester's are the same.

According to the Doc the bonded rounds are the best all around round to pentetrate and expand.

Those are good rounds. But the standard 147 gr perform better. Plus they have less recoil and muzzle flash. Which translates to faster follow up shots.

Slower heavier bullets have better penetration.

Read the article I posted. It was done by one of the top researchers on ballistics.

Also Winchester recommends their 147gr in short barrels.

I've had issues with the Hornady critical defense rounds feeding but the critical duty runs great. It feeds just as well as the Speer gold dot in both the XDm and my P95. I gotta admit with the P95, I could fill the mag with pudding and it would probably manage to cycle and shoot it.
