Put another 50 through the gun today. No problems whatsoever, so I consider her broke in. Started out firing in wet phone books, with Hydra shok, FMJ, and Hi shock. None of them expanded at all. the Hollowpoints went 7 inches, the FMJ, 8 inches. Switched to mud with a lot of organic straw, more like the human body anyway. The Hydra shok expanded just like advertised. The hi shok did too, but would always lose some jacket, but the lead did fully shroom. But went about 10" in. I don't really consider it too bad to lose a few grains of Jacket. Heck, they sell Prefragements that are supposed to do this. Another path of destruction in my book. As long as the lead core penetrates effectively. I did notice something, the Hydra is conical, the hi shok rounder. I Have photos, I don't know how to add them, in the photos you can see that the next round in battery got beat up severly in the P3at. The Hydra was really peeled back on the nose end, a lot more than the rounded Hi Shok. No doubt in a dirty gun these peeled back jackets add friction. I tried hand cycling one Hydra that had been chambered and I removed it to look at it. On the second try on chambering, it was definitely not a slick feed. Whether it makes a difference, I don't know. But IN THIS GUN, a rounder designed bullet seems called for just because of the damage a conical HP takes coming up to battery through the ejection of the previous round. I would stick with FMJ, Hi shoks, or maybe Golden sabers. This gun seems to really like rounder bullets. Overall a nice day in the woods, it's nice when everything works well. Oh, also tried Real old talons versus HST, Versus Gold dots in 9mm. Not really for this forum, but pretty cool test. The old talons, 147 grains are so impressive. They are evil! They shroom out, and still have a post behind them to break bones and carry on. They penetrated a full extra phone book over the HST's and Dots Too. So you have a full mushroom and them a stalk behind it. Looks like a stalk of Broccoli recovered. It's makes you say WOW. The Federal 124 HST +P did well. Just didn't have the weight behind it that the Talon had. It had a full mushroom but no stalk behind it. If I didn't have talons, this would be my round. I wanted to like this new technology better, I was ready to put the old black bullets to rest, I can't do it. The 124 +P gold dots were no slouch either, I think you could shoot Gold dots in air and they would expand exactly the same way, everytime. Dots are clones. They expanded about as much as the talon, not quite as much as the HST. I would rank it #1 talon, #2 HST, #3 Gold dot. But you can't go wrong with any of them!
