    Does anyone have any experience with Federal's Expanding Full Metal Jacket?

    Load number: PD9CSP2H
    105 grain bullet
    9x19mm
    Part of their Premium Personal Defense series
    Muzzle: 1230 fps @ 353 ft/lbs

    It supposedly combines the stopping power of a hollow point with the ease of loading of a full metal jacket. It is also Low Recoil, great for the smaller concealed handguns.

    Detroit PD uses it in .45 Not the best performing loads. However that and Corbon Power Ball are a decent choices for a gun with HP feeding problems.

    All of the expanding plastic tip bullets perform worse than a good JHP. In shooting animals not jelly, they open fast and do not penetrate very well.
