Shot some today, I like it, I like it better than that SD ammo with the red polymer insert.

    Why do you like it better?

    I've shot the other at the same OJ jugs I shot the guard dog at and thought it might have a penetration issue. It would hit hard and split the back and slip out the crack.

    The guard dog hit hard, blew a 2 inch hole out the back; no question which way it went. Also split the sides.

    I intend to shoot some boards as I saw an article about how it is down loaded for HD.

    Break break---I see your BIL is at large now.

    Okay, looks like it's interesting. I'm looking forward to your board test.

    Yep, he graduates tomorrow.

    I carry Guard Dog from time to time. I observed a ballistics test on bare gel and through glass as well as sheetrock. The sheetrock idea was to show that it is "safer" to use in home defense in case of a miss, it will not penetrate far. I'm not so sure about that, but it is a nice round. Especially if you have a finicky feeder.

    This was the first chance I had to buy some, used a pistol so far and am going to try one of the revolvers next.

    I'd like to get some .40 as well.

    I did shoot some 2x6, the guard dog it did not penetrate out of the first board and expanded to .86x.61 inches; then shot a ball rnd, it got through 1.5 2x6.

    I then made wall of 4 1/4 board paneling nailed to some 2x pieces separating each panel. The bullet zipped right through expanding on each panel making the last exit hole 3/4" across.

    Down loaded or not this ammo will go zipping into the next room if the stud in not hit.
