These number look pretty good. I hope actual performance measures up. If these work out I think I prefer them over the Federal EFMJ. The powerball ammo still looks familiar when it expands. Call me old fashioned.:D

Yes, exactly...
That's the one problem I have with the Pow'Rball ammo... it seems as if the rounded plastic pellet reduces the weight of the round...
We'll see how they work out.

According to COR-BON, it should be here soon for the 380.

"It should be available mid February. Early March at the latest."

Subject: Pow'Rball in .380


Any estimate when PowR'ball would be available in .380? I'm currently using the Corbon 380 auto 90gr JHP but would like to switch to the PowR'ball.

I liked the EFMJ when they first came out. Then I considered the fact that they are designed to expand to a certain size and it seemed limited compared to a JHP expanding. I guess that it is a tradeoff. More reliable feeding but limited expansion compared to a standard JHP.

Well, that's fine...
I'm just replying 'cause this was a startling post... I clicked on the new reply and faster than it's ever done before, ever, an expanded bullet just popped onto my screen, perfectly centered.
Scared me fer a minnit, there!!! :shock:

Revised stats from Corbon:

Pow'Rball 38Spec+P 100gr Pow'Rball 1400fps/514ftlbs
to
Pow'Rball 38Spec+P 100gr Pow'Rball 1300fps/375ftlbs

That's a big change. :shock:

Here are a couple pictures of recovered bullets from my P-11.

Front & Rear view.

These were fired through water bottles into a thick phone book.

Left is Pow'R Ball 100 gr
Right is Winchester Whitebox 115 gr JHP

The Pow'R Ball completely destroyed the first bottle. The whole back side was ruptured from the top to the bottom. It did not exit the second bottle.

The Winchester JHP tore a large hole in the back of the first bottle and front and back of second bottle and continued halfway through the phone book.
