  1. Unsure where to subscribe or request for guns/ammo to be tested, so I am trying it here. I would really like to see you test the new SIG 250 9mm with the Cor-Bon either DPX 115gr+P or standard 115gr +P. Also, please send me an email and tell me how to subscribe to your blog full time, as I am a big fan. Thank you!

    V/r,

    1. Hey Bryan. Thanks for the note.

      On subscribing, you should see a subscribe link under every post. It's right on top of the search box. If you click that link it should let you subscribe to receive an email as new posts go up.

      I don't have access to a huge variety of guns since I have to personally buy most of what I review. Depending on the barrel length of the P250, I might have a 9mm with a similar barrel length that I could test with.

      Both Corbon loads you mentioned are on my list of things to test at some point in the future. I have the ammo, but I'm not sure when their turn in the gel will come up.

      Thanks for reading and following the blog.

  2. Are any additional CorBon PowRBall tests in the plan?

    ReplyDelete
  3. If you define Plan as having more PowRBall on hand for testing, then I have to say no. That doesn't mean I won't test it again down the road when supply catches up with demand. Is there any specific caliber PowRBall you would like to see tested?

  4. Would really like to see you review a Kel-Tec P11, as I just purchased one. It's my first 9x19. I normally don't touch small calibers unless they're banshee screaming fast. Love the intricate testing you do. Bravo! Sure wish someone made a carry gun in 7.62x25. Some decent defense ammo would be nice too.

  5. ironically, the European made S&B ammo is quite mild compared to American made ammo in the same caliber. in the same model gun most folks get ~750 fps from Win, Fed, Rem, and the like 50 gr. FMJ. not that I am a fan of the .25acp, but I don't weight my opinion on a test using the slowest ammo out there.

    BTW, I love your site!

    1. Thanks for the comment and I will revisit the 25 Auto at some point. So much to test and so little time.
