(5 out of 5) Accurate and Reliable
by from Chester, VA on

Feeds perfectly through my Glock G21, Ruger SR1911 Officer and Norinco 1911. Hits to point of aim on all three sidearms.

(5 out of 5) Guard Dog is awesome ammo
by from JAMESTOWN, TN on

I have used this ammo in 40 cal and 45 acp and the ballistics are great. The polymer center helps to distribute the kinetic energy for maximum absorption by the target without over penetration. Finally, a round that does what it says it will.  The wound cavities left in ballistic gel is amazing. I will be buying more very soon.
