    The various bullet performance consistently get good reviews.

    Yup yup interesting stuff . Seem to always do what its advertised to do compared to the conventional style bullet/loading . At the end he mentions that the same bullet is being loaded in .32 acp now i wanna see the differance between it and conventional .

    TheKTOG has a thread in their P32 subforum which shows some tests, ims. My recollection is that it still performs as advertised, even in .32ACP. It's still underwhelming compared to 9mm, of course, but it does improve the permanent wound cavity over conventional .32ACP.

  4. Testing the 9mm it seemed to pass right through the Jello blocks by TNOutdoors9 testing. .32 might be just right.

    They make two different 9mm bullets, the Xtreme Penetrator and the Xtreme Cavitator.

    The Xtreme Penetrator does exactly what it says. It penetrates while generating a smaller permanent wound channel. Over penetrates for "social" purposes. Pretty good for hunting, however.

    The Xtreme Cavitator does not over penetrate by the FBI protocol. It also manages to hit all the protocol marks consistently, regardless of barrier, while still creating more-or-less the same permanent wound channel. This is something which standard expanding point bullets fail to do. The ones which make the FBI protocol will not expand as much and will make smaller permanent wound channels when passing through barriers, particularly hard barriers such as sheet steel and auto-glass. They still expand and still leave a permanent wound channel larger than FMJ, of course. Just not as much. The Xtreme Cavitator, on the other hand, performs contently in penetration depth and wound channel regardless of bare gel or intervening barrier. It's impressive.

    Bring your wallet 'cuz they ain't give'n this stuff away. :(
