    What properties make it a bad choice?

    It's a light, expanding round. My concern would be whether it had enough penetration into a real target to reach the vital organs.

    First...92gr. Too light, imho, for a 9mm SD round.

    Second--I'd want to see how it works in balgel, not phone books. Phone books are not a homogenous, controlled test medium; balgel is.

    Basically, I don't see how it offers any improvement over proven, heavyweight for caliber, conventional JHP bullets.

    I'm guessing it's probably designed for countries that don't allow JHP's.
