Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST DEFENSIVE AMMO FOR THE MONEY! Clean burning and positive feeding. Excellent knockdown power with great trajectory. But where this really stands out is in smaller guns. I have a Para Ordnance Warthog with 3 inch barrel. 10 round capability makes recoil great at first, but once down to 6 or less, it get's felt. Probably why so many of these guns are on the used market. Loaded with this 185 gr bullet the recoil is much more pleasant through the entire mag. And accuracy in a full size or compact is really very good! Thank you!
