Iceman Chuck "...I'll stick to the loads that have worked for me from now on!... Lesson is to always try your carry ammo before betting your life on it"
Everyone will always have their favorite ammo for this reason or that, but you hit the nail right on the head "...stick to the loads that have worked for me..."
It's YOUR gun being shot by YOU not someone else. All the statistics in the world are just guidelines
for you to make your own decision about (as you so correctly put it) "... betting your life on it."
There is little doubt in my mind, based on my own tests, that if you choose the "Critical Duty" line of ammo as your primary home/self defense ammunition, you have made an excellent choice. This cartridge will quickly and thoroughly dispatch any bad guys, thugs, or what have you that threaten you or your family.
