Sorry to report...no good deals on the PowRball. They are proud of this round. I have quite a bit of experience with it in the 165gr .45acp version. Never one hiccup but not quite as accurate as a 230gr in a tuned 1911. But they didn't design this ammo for accuracy. I agree...I believe this may be the ultimate defensive round due to its slick feeding polymer nose. Hard to imagine a jam with this round...at least in a clean XD.
I'll get some through my XD-9 maybe this weekend and report back.
The latest testing results from Dr. Roberts show regular regular core-jacket separations. If you want Corbon go with the DPX. I would have recommended that even before seeing these latest results because the Barnes copper bullets already have an excellent reputation from past loadings.
If someone wants to try the stuff, we are giving away one $50 gift cert towards any Cor-Bon ammo of your choice, following Brian Enos' session in the Pistol-Gear "Bunker". Hey, who doesn't like free ammo!?
