 Shchnazzy commercial, but I'd need to do some testing of my own before using it on a hunt, especially on anything larger than a deer.  I don't doubt the accuracy claims, but am skeptical of it providing adequate penetration for many situations.

 I'd love to try it out sometime...

We do balistic gel test fairly often usually each new Firearms Instructor class the ATK guy puts it on to convince all the departments to use their Federal and Speer law enforcement ammo.  Penetration is a big factor and you can always count on  45acp ball ammo to do the trick it doesnt need to expand like smaller calibers do but if you use an expanding bullet The Speer 230 hpt is very impressive.  I'm pretty comfortable with Federal & Speer, Winchester, Remmington, Horniday, Black Hills.  I would rather not buy most other brands but there are some specialty rounds like Buffalo Bore that have merit. As long as you stay with .357, 40S&W, 10mm, 41 mag, 44 mag, 44 special, 45acp, 45 long colt they will always stop someone before they can hurt you.  Even 9mm & 38 can sometimes depending on shot placement.

Man that's some high dollar ammo.  I like the Mandrell sisters though.   LOL
