Good ammo in its own right, but there are better choices. Unless you live in an apartment with paper-thin walls, stay away from the 40gr stuff. Looks great on paper (ballistic wise), but its penetration is waaay too shallow to be taken really seriously. The 55gr one is a bit better, but it still underpenetrates (at least based on most criteria). It would be a good choice if you are really concerned about overpenetration inside a house. A better choice would be the Black Hills 68 or 75gr BTHP match rounds. Nice (actually, very nice) fragmentation (these rounds do NOT expand, the hollow point is just a by-product of manufacture) out to 200 yds, with deeper penetration. Although they can go through more walls than the ballistic tips rounds, they are still "safer" to shoot indoors than conventional, typical handgun rounds.
