    I have had a Colt 1911 for a long time. Since getting it I have been collecting different types of factory SD ammo for it. I have quite a nice collection now and added one more last night. I have wanted some of this Extreme Shock stuff for a while but thought it was too expensive. Cabala's had it marked down from $39.99 to $24.88 and I jumped on it. I don't have to pay any shipping costs when ordering because I use the option of having it delivered to a Cabelas store and they notify me when it arrives.

    Have any of you tried this ammo or heard anything about it?

    You're wasting your money if you buy that stuff. Get a real bullet like Federal HST or hydrashoks, Speer Gold Dots, Winchester Rangers....a good hollow point with a proven history. I prefer a heavier bullet so I would recommend a 230gr +p. Why the +p? If someone is attacking me I want to get every ounce of energy possible out of my side arm. The heavier bullet helps to make sure it carries energy deep enough to get to the vitals, even thru heavy clothing.

    I've killed 1000 lb. steers with the lowly .22 short. Placement of the projectile has more to do with stopping power than size & speed.

    I've never bought a SD round other than white box target ammo. If that don't stop them, then whatever happens, happens.

    I've never heard of that particular brand/type of ammunition. I stick to Speer Gold Dot Hollow Point, which I use the 147gr 9mm ammunition in my Kahr CM9 and Ruger SR9c.

    I have all of those you mentioned already. I have the Hornadys, Winchesters, Remingtons, Federals, and many others. I am not sure exactly I started collecting this ammo. I guess I was always concerned that the day may come that this ammo is not available or very, very expensive. Thanks to all for your comments. I appreciate what you had to say.

    I didn't ready the title of the thread, so I accidentally said what I carry in 9mm :eek:. In .45ACP I still use Speer Gold Dot Hollow Point ammunition, which I use 230gr ammunition.

    Okay, I think I have enough of the different types of ammo for my collection. If it isn't .45acp +P in 230 grain from now on I am not buying it.
     
  10. That 'Extreme' ammo had such outrageous advertising, I'm not sure anyone ever fired any of it. I was laughing too hard. It's probably as good as any other but no better, either.

    However, since you collect factory ammunition as you mentioned, I think it belongs in a collection. That you got it cheap is even better. Keep the box dusted and intact.

    Maybe I misunderstood, you aren't wanted to actually use this ammo, you just want to collect it? If you just want to collect different kinds of ammo, then fine.
    If you want to actually defend yourself with it, I would find some different ammo.

    So far I have just collected it. I have other ammo that I shoot. If I am carrying my .45 I usually have something like the Cor Bons or Hydra Shoks in it. I know they are tried and true.
