Good for followup shots, as it has less flip and snap for recoil, but the lower velocity compromises expansion, and thus lethality. I am going back to 124 grain for EDC. When your target is trying to kill you, recoil becomes a moot point. Refer to Phoenix Police Department Report Number 2003-32070832, October 3, 2003, 7:46 PM, the Taco Bell employee called PPD while I was defending myself, from a meth crazed lunatic using a MkIII Browning Hi Power, and 124 Grain +P Golden Sabers. Everything slowed down, but me. The slide looked like it was moving so slow I could read the serial number. For target shooting with JHPs this ammo is great. It is accurate, and recoil is very nice. The velocity is lower than 124 grain, and most 147 grain non +P 9mm Luger ammo is subsonic too. Am I going to claim this hits like .40 S&W, 10mm, or .45 ACP? NO, because it simply cannot do it. Clean up or rounds fired between cleanings is excellent. It does not foul your guns fast at all. Quality is overall excellent. Velocity is generally lower than stated with the same barrel length used in supposed testing, even using a good quality high velocity barrel such as an H&K, or aftermarket Glock polygonal. Consistency for velocity is about average for quality ammo, maybe slightly better than average. Projectiles look good, no blemishes, or other defects. Casings appear excellent too with no objectionable dents or dings. Expansion in gel is very good but not great.
