1911, over 30 years ago, using 10.0 grs of Unique,in a regular old 1911. You guys are WAY behind the curve. With modern powders,fully supported barrels, heavier springs, longer, MUCH stronger case of 460 Rowland, getting same bullet to 1550 fps is nothingmuch.
The point is that most people carry .45's for protection against other people, and with the new style hollowpoints that have been avaiable for 15 years now in factory loaded ammo ready to go, you don't need a custom rocket load, with the unnecessary extra recoil and stress on the weapon, to get reallly effective man-stopper performance.
if u could READ, <font color=red>*</font><font color=red>*</font><font color=red>*</font><font color=red>*</font><font color=red>*</font>, u'd see that I advocate 70 grs at 2300 fps, which is NOT more recoil than .45 BALL, and you'd KNOW that animal tests don't back up the bulletmaker's CLAIMS of expansion in flesh, below1100 fps. U can believe that bs if you want.
He likes to talk about all the "dogs" he's shot. He's never shot one at all. Ever... but I CAN picture him hiding in his bushes waiting for a Lhasa Apso to come down the sidewalk. *Don't show yourself, YS! It might overpower you!*
Wait till its little back is turned and then :fullauto: POW!! Then run right home and ask your wife if you can post about it on the computer!
SCORES of stray dogs, dip<font color=red>*</font><font color=red>*</font><font color=red>*</font><font color=red>*</font>. Not 1 or 1. HUNDREDS of other animals, too, of course. MANY people are stopped by .22's, so the fact that a lot of wimps stop when shot with non-expanding jhp's doesn't prove that they expand, or that said expansion was enough to mean jack crap.
I've OFFERED, for YEARS now, to bet 10 to one on the results of shooting 10 dogs, from the front, to one lung, the way men get shot, using such lame assed jhp's, versus using my prefrags. NOBODY wants to puta lousy $500 against my $5000? Know WHY? Cause they know damned WELL that they'd lose, and I'd laugh them off of the NET.
