Anyone seen these. Horndy went a different direction 9mm 135grain +p @1110 fps, with a a non bonded bullet, but with their flex tip. They claim it excels at the FBI test. they dont list a muzzle energy but it will be lest thatn 400lbs, figured it to be prob around the 370 range. For civilian use, I dont see any reason to switch from the proven SD rounds. They have a video on the website about it, check it out.
I'll stick with a bonded traditional HP.
If the bullet meets FBI criteria in tests by an independent lab... and if they offer them in 50 round boxes for civilian sales... and if they offer the bullets as reloading components... then, and only then, will I be happy, and buy thousands of them.
Federal has been loading a 135gr +P load in their LE line for a few years now (and it is on The List
), and they also offer a 135gr HydraShock. Note that the LE load is a bonded bullet, and not the same as the "low recoil" 135gr HydraShock... 130ish grain bullets in 9mm are nothing new.
I stick with stuff from winchester and remington, they make what I need that works.
While it seems hornady tries to make things that are special and exotic that fail to meet accepted standards just for the sake of being different.
Why not make all there loads to FBI specs 38spl, 45acp ,10mm
I just hope it doesnt have a zombie on the label
