    I’m running hydroshock, mainly because I wanted to try it out.... It’s seems to work out of my 1911s and my glock....

    Last year I found a deal on HST that was buy one/get one, 50-round boxes. I bought...a bunch. I feel like a genius now. I have enough carry ammo that I'll be able to go a long time without running out, even after shooting a lot of it through various guns and mags to ensure function and accuracy. I can even use more as range ammo and not feel bad about it.

    Still wish I had bought more.

    Thanks, but at this time, I am not willing to go through testing for a new change bullet weight.

    And, at this moment, according to their website, SIGAmmo has no .45 ammo at all.

    Good ammo is available directly from Federal. I've don about a dozen orders they've all gone off without a hitch. I try to get to $150 to get free shipping.
    At this moment, the only ammo available on Federal's website is 10 mm.

    When I said right now, I wasn't kidding.

    I am all about nostalgia, but that is no reason to pick a weapon for self-defense.

    When he went after Bonnie and Clyde, he carried a Colt 1911 pattern pistol, likely in .38 Super. It's not clear if he also carried "Old Lucky," but it's equally likely he carried a .44 Special Smith and Wesson Triple Lock as a second gun.

    In his hands when he broke cover and challenged them was a 5-shot Remington Model 8 in .35 Remington (Although Sheriff Jim Wilson writes that it was in .30 Rem.). The Colt and Remington were close to state of the art at that time.

    Yeah, Michael Mann loves vintage firearms, especially, it seems, the Monitor. See "Public Enemies."
