I think the current theory of "designer ammo" at over a buck a round is ridiculous. 20 round boxes are a joke.
I gotta agree. Like with hunting bullets, for SD/HD, many folks seem to think they need the latest and the most over hyped in order to be successful. Truth be told, "Magic" bullets do not exist. The magic comes when one can consistently hit where they aim. With a handgun, this comes with practice, not in a fancy box with a fancy price. Any basic HP will have lethal terminal performance when put in the right spot, regardless of the color, if any, of the little plastic tip on the end.
