I am intrigued. May be the same bullet at lower speed than the 1400fps, but will it open up the same way ?
I don't think its too much at all... its the common weight used in .40SW defense loads and has an extremely high one-shot-stop percentage, even at .40 velocities (1250fps). Even a mild 10mm loading would be devastating and I've no doubt that a 135gr at 1600fps would be nothing short of a bomb. The nice thing is, its a normal bullet. Its not even a "deadly black talon cop killer armor piercing exploding tungsten core" bullet... its just a normal hollowpoint. I keep my 10's loaded with 135's at home since I want something that stops in the "first jug", so to speak. :P
