Ball Ammo

Denny, Not sure if it is you, but i think it is. Do you prefer 45. cal ball ammo, to say hollow points and if so why? Although I have this vague memory of yo liking Power Ball also. Thanks Ed Curry

Ed,
Although I do not trust any pistol bullet to reliably expand, I carry hollowpoints on the chance that they might. The reason is more tissue damage and thus increasing the possibility of stopping the threat.

FWIW, I use Black Hills ammunition (230-gr. JHP in .45 ACP) almost exclusively, because I have found it to be the most consistent in the industry although Hornady runs a very close second.
