Default LehighDefense ammo.

Is anyone using Lehigh Defense Extreme Penetrator or Extreme Defense ammo? I would use the Penetrator ammo in .357 and Defense ammo in 9MM. What are your thoughts on this ammo?

Not for .357, the wound channel is too much like FMJ. I'd stick with a hollow point:


I do recommend Extreme Defense for your 9mm though. It's performed well in my tests:

Second that on the Extreme Defense in 9mm. (I use the Lehigh bullet as loaded by Underwood to a level that would be equal to a +P.) I also carry the same in my Kimber Micro .380. It's expensive, but for my money, it's the most reliable .380 self-defense round for the short barrelled semi-auto. I typically practice with FMJ for less money, but I do shoot a few of the Lehighs as well just to make sure.

I'd let someone else do the real world beta testing. Ballistic gel isn't the real world.
