Look at that Gold dot, looks perfect, the Federals look better than I thought they would and that Winchester looks mean.

Water jugs are a poor representaion of performance in actual tissue. Still, gotta love the Gold Dot!

Always been a fan of the gold dots, they are my carry round in my 1911. In my FN FNX 9 however, I choose to use Hornady Critical Duty 135gn hp's. The newer design of the bullet has been very impressive so far. Very consistent penetration of about 12-13" in ballistic gel through everything. Jeans, 2 sheets of sheet metal, 2 panels of drywall and plate glass. Not my home defense go to but definitely for carry.

I carry Speer Gold Dot, and from the pictures, they appear to be pretty good. Is the Winchester SXT the same as the much-maligned Black Talon under a different name?

Thanks. It is amazing how a name applied to an inanimate product can get such a negative reaction. But the manufacturers should avoid that s**t and use letters and numbers for their stuff that won't get the Brady Bunch's ovaries in an uproar.
