There are better bullet choices out there. I have had trouble getting the GS to open up as advertised unless run very hot. Even when making chest shots they tend to act like a FMJ, the brass case just doesnt open up. I was serving a warrant and the subject turned loose a big Rottweiler. Long story short, 2 shots into the chest did not drop him, a 3rd shot into the head was necessary from a .45. One of several occurances of the GS not opening up. Better choices are available.
