    I usually keep a variety of 230gr FMJ's on hand for plinking, target shooting and Personal Defense.

    I saw a box of 230 JHP PDX1 and figured I should give them a try.
    Sun finally came out, so I am going to step out to the range and see how they feed in my Kimber.

    Be right back!

    The PDX1 fed fine. Probably will run more through the Kimber 3" before I switch over tho.

    Interesting results. At 15 yards, I broke my spinner, but was able to recover the projectile.
    The Jacket parted company with the lead core. Both were sitting right below the spinner.

    LOL Olympus, I appreciate your interest and graciousness.

    That's not unusual with non-bonded ammo.

    I wouldn't want to get hit with it. But it did do a number on your spinner!

    and it's the Law.

    I was hoping that I would see a better lump of jacket/core, but I suppose a steel spinner wasn't on the FBI testing protocol.

    I certainly don't think that I can provide for better testing than the FBI or gun magazines, but I'll have to punch a couple of milk jugs with water and check the results.

    Everthing looked like a good example of transferring energy!
