"Whatever you choose, make sure you fire at least 500 and preferably 1000 failure free shots through your pistol prior to carrying it. If your pistol cannot fire at least 1000 consecutive shots without a malfunction, something is wrong and it is not suitable for duty/self-defense use." Dr. Gary Roberts in pistol-forum.com
"Purchase a consistent, robust performing duty/self-defense load in sufficient quantities (at least 1000 rounds) then STOP worrying about the nuances of handgun ammunition terminal performance." Dr. Gary Roberts

The photo depicts two of the 147 gr HST control rounds to the left of the dime--the top one fired into BG, the bottom into 4LD. The top row to the right of the dime is the 124 gr +P HST fired into BG, followed by the same round into 4LD. The third row is the 124 gr +P bonded Golden Saber in to BG, with the bottom row being GS shots into 4 LD.
"Both the 147 gr HST and 124 gr +P HST rounds are among the finest 9 mm duty loads currently available."
