    Got it. With most youtube pistol tests I ignore the commentary and only look for penetration and factors around the condition of the slug.

    Update request -- has anyone out there in PF land shot enough of these, in either the Lehigh or Underwood flavor, to have an opinion on reliability and penetration, for use in a field pistol?
    Likes pretty much everything in every caliber.

    I think penetration is a given with this bullet, driven fast. QC and reliability would be the unknown without testing.

    Given the cost of the projectile, I'd rather use a good hard cast 22-Brinell bullet with a powder coat which is a fraction of the cost of those Lehigh penetrators.

    I bought several boxes and ran 40 through a G42 and it fed, cycled and printed well.

    I haven't had good luck with hard cast loads feeding in service pistols.

    About a year or year and a half ago a guy on LF reported running 200 successfully through his G42. I've not seen any users for service pistol calibers report beyond the youtube penetration test demos.

    I'm diving head first into them in 10mm. I chose the Underwood loading. First box of 20 cycled just fine. Many, many more to go.

    I understand the realities of marketing, but ad copy with that much woo-woo and hyperbole really makes me flinch. :/
