I have really been coming on to the 200's lately. They seem to penetrate close to what a 230 does, but offer better expansion. 200 gr +p Gold dots do great. I need to get my hands on some 200 gr. XTP's and try them out.BrianMajors said:I have almost always used a form of 230 grain bullet, since that is what most 1911's are based around anyway(I think).
I have used Remington Golden Sabers mostly, but have recently switched to Hornady XTP(?) 200gr +P. I'm hoping the added velocity might help with expansion, if neccesary. But hey, that's why I carry .45ACP. If it don't expand, it's still damn near a half inch hole!
