reliable ammo... only round I will conceal carry.
I inadvertently sent a round of this ammo through the wash in my coin pocket of my jeans. .. apparently my wife pulled it out when it was clanking around the inside of the dryer. I loaded it at a random spot in my magazine thinking it was a good chance to rapidly clear a round that doesn't fire. To my amazement I emptied the magazine without a single misfire... amazing reliability. I will never conceal carry another round.
Proof Enough For Me
The 230 +P is what I have combat loaded in my Kimber Ultra Carry 1911(3in barrel). While wild hog hunting in Dorchester County, SC, I had the opportunity to harvest a Feral Hog with my 30.06, which was in a group of 6 pigs. When I went down to the kill zone to drag out my pig, one of the group returned to the food source. I drew my Kimber and killed him from about 15 feet with one shot to the head. He never took another breath. Post-mortem of the kill showed massive damage of soft tissue and penetration of about 7 inches (Diagonally from skull to esophagus) and, without weighing the bullet, it seemed to have retained most of it's mass. If it will penetrate a 125lb wild hog's skull, I feel confident it'll perform well against human attackers.
Packs a PUNCH! But Quality seems poor
I decided to put through 20 rounds of Magtech Guardian Gold, +P 230gr JHP; in my HK45ct. I had 7 failures to feed out if 20.. not good! (HK has fed all other hollow tip and +p ammo 100% in past). The hollow-point edges on these Magtech rounds are not perfectly circular have dings on sides of edges and look very rough around edges that would touch the feed ramp. I looked at other boxes of this ammo I received and all look to be the same poor quality. Seems like they have a quality control issue. As of now would not feel confident keeping my mags loaded at home with these rounds (wish I could though, know they have power behind them!)
Once I did get the gun in battery boy does this ammo create a BANG! Much more than any other ammo I have fired. It was very accurate.
Great Self-Defense Ammo
I have fired a total of 40 rounds through 2 1911s and both my Kimber Custom Carry and my P10-45. These are very hot rounds and shooting them too frequently would cause more wear than I would like. The price does a nice job of keeping the practice down as these are very expensive. For the money, they are a great self-defense round that never failed to feed or fire and packs a tremendous amount of energy in the .45 ACP platform. My P10-45 tends to be finicky about the ammo it will process, but it LOVED this stuff. Save the regular practice for a less pricey bulk ammo and save this for the (hopefully) very rare opportunity to defend yourself.
I've run about 50 rounds of this stuff through my SW 1911. Boy howdy.... it packs a punch.
I noticed a significantly bigger BANG than I've experienced with other ammo. It is also very accurate and reliable.
