One day I am going to get some of those Sierra bullets and reload them. But for now, I'll use the CorBon rounds.

Corbon hasn't used a Sierra bullet in their 9mm 115 gr. for years. They make their own proprietary bullet. They recently changed the design to give better penetration as well.

I didn't know this. It sure looks like a Sierra bullet!

I bought a few boxes of 125 gr. CB .357 SIG last year.

They look identical to the DT 125 gr. Sierras.
Caliber Corner
Whether or not CB has gone to a different design is unknown by me.

Although expensive, I still like my DT Barnes loads in all my current calibers that I use.

Your photo is very definitive - the Sierra 125gr JHP. Good velocity, also.

I think the problem isn't as much the cost as it is that their claimed velocities seem to be wildly overstated.

The .357 Sig sure is a powerful cartridge!

Yes, I can agree with the velocity issue but have to say that not all companies making ammo are 100% correct with velocities.

Plus, I don't have to still be a cop to enjoy Enhanced Performance level ammo that some
still sell as LEO ONLY.

DT is faster than what I can buy from most places and with the exception of one single 9mm round (Gold Dot shedding jacket) has superb quality control and customer service in my experience.

Mike has also been crafting his ammo much longer than the smaller companies.
That others sell comparable ammo at lower costs, really doesn't affect the legion
of satisfied Double Tap Ammo fans and customers.

If I were an ammo manufacturer, and I provided velocity data to the buying public, I would clearly specify which gun and barrel length was used to get the velocity data. The buying public deserves fully-documented velocity data.

The difference can probably be attributed to a combination of production lot of ammunition and environmental factors that day.

Yep, most likely.

Man, the above post is one giant epic fail.


A) great so you're saying some other manufacturers are full of crap so if double tap is full of crap it's ok. What fabulous thinking.

B) with all due respect the fact that he's been doing it longer only matters if he's doing it better which btw has basically been proven to be wanting in many cases (wrongfully advertised velocities, wrongfully advertised components, like bullets, etc). So in essence buyers have been basically LIED TO and you think that's just peachy keen... Wonderful .

C) MEGA wrong. My guess is that 98% of sales of people like Underwood, are directly taking away sales from doubletap. And for that matter as the word spreads, double tap will continue to shed sales until they get their act together. So even knowing all the facts, the lemmings keep lining up to pay top dollar cause their loyal to the company that's been bs'ing them for years... Wow..
