COR-BON sent out a press release telling about their new line of ammo. They call it PowRball. It is a conventional jacketed
hollowpoint with a polymer ball inside the hollowpoint itself. This will make the profile of a FMJ and should improve feeding in
all pistols. I can't wait to see some results of gelatin testing to see how much if any effect the ball will have on performance.
They have the 45 caliber available now in a 165 gr round with other calibers and bullet weights to follow soon!

Haven't tried or seen the new Cor-Bon, but if it is like other Cor-Bon ammo, it is POWERFUL! I look forward to trying this new load. Have you tried the Winchester 185 Gr. FMJ? They're GREAT. Keep shooting.

Later,
Bear One

I like them fine the way they are...I sure hope they don't screw with the regular JHP. It's the honkin' loads from Cor-Bon that work 100% in my 45...Jeez...I better stock up I guess...
