Anybody out there know much about RBCD Preformance Plus ammo or have had experiences with it? I just picked some up for my XD40SC after reading their website's ballistic information and testimonials.
http://www.rbcd.net/
It appears to be a blended metal bullet that passes through solid objects like glass and metal while holding it's shape and then exploding when it contacts flesh. They are rumored to not exit the BG when you put a couple into him.
Here is a quote from their website. "Designed for law enforcement personnel to penetrate automotive safety glass and metal body panels while, still maintaining the desired expansion, penetration and energy transfer in tissue, without over penetration..."
I liked the fact that it expands well upon impact with tissue. And that it has a rounded head instead of hoping that the hollow points that I was carrying would load properly and not hang up on my feed ramp.
They were expensive suckers. $45 for 20 rounds. But if they perform like I have been told they do then they are worth every penny.
I will make it a point to go out and test them in the desert on a couple milk jugs full of water and will come back with a damage report.

I am interested in hearing what my fellow Conceal Carry Holders have to say about the ammo.

Heard some people love them, others hate them. It falls under the fast and light vs. the heavy and slow bullet debate. I've looked into them cause the range I shoot at pushes them a bit. After what i've found I shoot Federal HST tactical.

Heres a little of what i've found on the interweb.
