Hey fella's about your defense ammo topic. First of all the winchester Black Talons where re designed because of the bad rap. The current SXT rounds which basically replaces the ol black talons the only difference is the pedals and the cuts in actual bullet it's self. The SXT stands for Supreme Expansion Technology. And for you reaper 308 the DPX Barnes bullet loaded by carbon is a 100% copper bullet with a wide cavity for big expansion. The bullet is actually longer than a typical lead jacketed bullet because copper is lighter than lead. They would be very good for home and street carry. The DPX rounds are made or have lighter than normal loadings for each caliber which produces higher velocitys. greasy paws the 3" shells you said your keeping in your 12ga. is diffently an over kill if you use that shit in your house. Have you ever shot a full load 3" shell buck shot or slug? Don't need it unless you plan on shooting a big grizzly or brown bear. What you should be using is low recoil buck shot #1 or #4 in your home. If you can find it, i use federal LE132oo Tactical buckshot 9 count with flight control wad. It comes in 2 3/4" shells low velocity and high velocity. It keeps a very tight pattern untill it hits it's target. Very managable load. Also in the standard loading try the H132 lead oo buck shot it's the non version of the le load. I beleive that is the product # Check out federal web site you'll find it. I use hornady tap 147gr. for my 9mm's. As for you clintiebo i have tested 45 rounds in jointcompund dry wall mud. I used the hornady and the gold dot in it. I prefer the hornady. 230 gr. standard loading good expansion and will not over penetrat. I also have tested the golden saber in the 9mm and 45acp. LE loading +p loading and standard loading. It is also a good round for street and home. I have lots of tested ammo i did my self kinda like a back yard machanic. But a backyard ballistican. If you guys have any more questions ask away. Don't forget i have mentioned before i worked at an indoor shooting center for over 10 years, so i had alot of access to lots of shootin and ammunition.
