I carry my 1076 in the summer loaded with original Black Talons. Carry my 1026 in the winter loaded with Cor Bon DPX loads. Have all the trust with both rounds.

CRJ, here is a thread on the pull down Shadow did on the Black Talon, FYI.

sqlbullet,
Good info there! 

I wonder if we could lobby Winchester to make some 180gr @ 1,200ish fps loads using the bonded bullet from the Ranger T or PDX line?  They seem pretty content to rest on their Silvertip laurels.

A while back I had checked with Mas Ayoob regarding the verdict in the Harold Fish case (Arizona). The contention was that Fish had been convicted of murder due to the fact that he was carrying a 10mm Kimber.

Mas, who was extremely familiar with the case, explained that the 10mm did have a small influence on the jury the way it was presented in trial. He further stated, however, that Fish had received a lousy defense form his attorneys, and this could have and should have been avoided.

And some might be unaware that Fish shot and killed an unarmed man, which can be a more difficult case to defend.

Fish did some time in jail, and his verdict was later overturned, setting him free.

Rick R makes some important points.

For example in Kentucky, a person will face far different scrutiny in Louisville (Jefferson County) or Lexington (Fayette County) other things being equal, than they will in the other 118 counties in the state. Whereas handloaded, hollow points may be an issue in those two counties, it would probably even raise an eyebrow in the rural areas.

Another point, this one regarding handloaded ammo. The rationale for not carrying it is based upon the idea that ammo manufacturers retain samples by lot number that may be obtained by a competent defense team to duplicate ballistics and verify the defendant's claims or refute prosecutor's allegations.

Midway had some 40S&W with Ranger T bullets for a low price (~$10) a long time ago. I was thinking about buying some and pulling the bullets to use in 10mm. It would have cost just as much as buying the bullets by themselves (if you could buy Ranger bullets).

No longer cheap ---> https://www.midwayusa.com/product/419246/winchester-ammunition-40-s-and-w-180-grain-bonded-hollow-point

What happens if I carry my G29 loaded with Uw 9x25 Dillons?  :o
How powerful is 10mm? Well, see those craters on the moon?

If you shoot someone everything except their shoe soles will evaporate.  It will take seven years for them to be declared to be "dead" and you have time to move elsewhere .  😆
