The photo depicts two of the 147 gr HST control rounds to the left of the dime--the top one fired into BG, the bottom into 4LD. The top row to the right of the dime is the 124 gr +P HST fired into BG, followed by the same round into 4LD. The third row is the 124 gr +P bonded Golden Saber in to BG, with the bottom row being GS shots into 4 LD.

Both the 147 gr HST and 124 gr +P HST rounds are among the finest 9 mm duty loads currently available.
