Putzing about today so we decided to pick some flowers:

Left to right:
Federal Tactical Bonded 135gr, Federal Tactical HST 147gr +P, Federal Tactical EFMJ 124gr, Corbon DPX 115gr +P

These flowers were found bloomin' in gallon water jugs ;)

Agreed. In all testing thus far all HST has proven to be reliable and a performer. Preference to the 147gr (regular and +P) over the 124gr. Where it doesn't shine (such as auto glass) Federal's Tactical Bonded 135gr shines.

More testing to come, but the EFMJ is interesting thus far. Preliminary testing indicates it might be a very practical round for use in apartments/duplexes/adjacent dwellings. This was our first testing of it today.

And as always, Corbon's DPX 115gr +P performed as expected - solid penetration and full flowering.
