A +P+ round in a PCR
« on: February 06, 2018, 10:05:56 PM »
Recently a lot of nut cases for lack of a better word have been wearing body armor. I recently checked out Underwood Extreme Defense 90gr +P+ ammo. MV is 1550 and Eng 435. I spoke to CZ they said (a salesman) said no. But I also spoke to CGW and they said it could handle it. Not as a steady diet but only a few rounds to test and then only for SD if some nut is wearing armor.

My question is, has anyone with a PCR only, have tried it? If so, what is your feed back on it for recoil versus standard or +P ammo?

Thanks for your feedback.

Unless that stuff is a saboted .2-something diameter bullet designed for penetration into steel, +p+ is just a gimmick IMO.

There is no better penetration than heavy for caliber (147 gr) -- even standard pressure of the most popular defense rounds perform the best (FBI tests).

Again lightweight for caliber is bad.  Is that particular bullet surrounded by a sabot perhaps jacketed  with a steel or titanium tip?  Only then might you convince me that it is a magical penetrator.

YMMV

You already posted this question in the reloading section? You'll get the same responses to this thread as you are that one. And asking the question over and over in other threads is just spamming.

No real expansion.  Maybe comparing to 115gr FMJ varieties would have been useful.

I posted the question in different sections because different people read different sections. I personally never read the ammo section.

Well, maybe you should.
