High quality training ammo
I've been wanting to switch to 147 grain for my carry pistol, but have been holding off due to prices & shortages. Now that this - along with the 147gr HST - were available at better prices I gave it a try. Shot accurately, fed flawlessly and as advertised, matched the 147gr HST ballistics from 5 to 15 yards. Also, the barrel was noticeably cleaner than usual afterwards
I ran this ammo through a couple of pistols and found it to be reliable and fairly accurate. Left the guns pretty clean considering the amount of rounds I put through them. My friend also loaded up a couple of magazines of this ammo and put them through one of his pistols that has had a lot of issues with cycling in the past. It went through about 100 of these without a malfunction. I was impressed.
This or the 150 g version?
The issue is between this and the 150 g red version. (If it is just the synthetic jacket you are looking for, they have it in lighter grains too.)
First, why a heavier bullet? First, paradoxically, the recoil is lighter--presumably because a heavier bullet takes milliseconds longer to get out of the barrel, and that spreads out the recoil just enough to make some difference in how it feels in your hand.
Secondly, they are subsonic: which means there is no extra sound, or or extra shock wave, from breaking the sound barrier as the bullet leaves the barrel. It is also what you want for a suppressor.
Third, in at least one test Chris found (to his surprise) that heaver bullets shoot straighter--i.e., drop less at a distance.
As for self-defense rounds, almost all heavier self-defense rounds are 147 g. (not 150 g.). While most use lighter bullets, there can be advantages to the greater weight in some situation--although not in others. In my case, I'm old and I carry 147 g. because of the recoil and blast...and because I have a suppressor if I want to use it at home.
This 147 g. round is listed at 1000 FPS & 326 Ft/Lbs Energy; the 150 g is 890 FPS and 264 Ft/Lbs.
So, this is my conclusion: if you will be carrying 147 g. for self-defense, and want to use exactly the same weight for training, go with this one. If you are just looking for the least possible recoil and blast, use the 150 g.
As for feeding (of both), they have partially flattened noses: that has caused no problems at all with my Sig P-226, nor my (full-sized) 1911's. However, a friend has an officer's 1911, and in his particular gun he did have feeding problems.
The ammo burns clean.
