    Man @Aarond, I sure do agree with you on the part about reliable performance, but I’m curious about these high quality semi autos that have all failed at least twice with hollowpoints...will you divulge? I had a Sig P239 a few years back that would occasionally fail to feed FMJ, regardless of magazines, regardless of brand, and with new stock springs in it. (Notice that I said “had”. Sold it with full disclosure).

    Hello druryj:

    My three 9mm pistols are:
    CZ-75B
    Ruger LC9,
    Bersa Thunder Pro 9 UC compact

    All run 100% with flat nose ball ammo,,,
    They run 99.99% or better with HP's.

    I know I go against common gun wisdom,,,
    I just prefer 100% in a carry weapon.

    Good enough. And thanks, I do understand your rationale. Might look at these; same kind of profile as a flat nose, but just possibly a tad bit "better" as far as creating shock and awe.
    The link is to Underwood Extreme Defender Ammo. There is a variety of weights and so on to choose from. I know that I will be getting some to check out shortly. It certainly bears looking at a little closer, IMO.

    Well, about all I'll be able to do is see if it functions (I bet it does just fine) and maybe shoot an old melon or a water jug or something.

    Years ago a company had what they called an Arcane round that was milled on a lathe out of solid copper. It was devastating but I think expensive. Velocities were unbelievable on 9 mm.

    Add: I believe it was banned as body armor piercing.

    Currently using Federal HST 124grain standard pressure for the Beretta APX and Walther PPS m2. I do have HST 230 grain for the rare times i carry something in 45acp.
