Part of Black Hills’ secret to success is using only the finest components available to load their cartridges. Uniform and virgin brass cases, potent Boxer primers, and carefully formulated proprietary powder blends all go into a Black Hills load, each of which is hand inspected after assembly. Black Hills owner Jeff Hoffman, a cop of 37 years, knows firsthand how essential a trustworthy cartridge is.
This 9mm +P round features an exceptional 115 grain bullet: the TAC-XP by Barnes of Utah. It is made entirely out of copper, so it prevents barrel leading and is friendly to the environment. More importantly, the monolithic bullet lacks any core and jacket that could separate from one another during terminal penetration. Copper is exceedingly durable, so the TAC-XP retains the weight requisite for deep penetration even after having passed through a dense barrier such as heavy fabric or auto glass. And as the hollow point bullet meets with resistance from soft tissue, it begins expanding rapidly outward to deliver a cavernous wound channel.
Most modern handguns are rated for fire +P ammunition, including Glock’s G17, G19, and G43.
