I tried Corbon in my Glock 35 and I found it to have better grouping than the Speer, anyone else notice this?
In any case I will be keeping Corbons in my mags from now on due to the better stopping power

Yep I like the Corbons. They are in my off duty guns but we get issued Gold Dots and must carry those. The Gold Dots are still a good round though.

Both are good rounds... but you are right, Corbon is top notch stuff!

I prefer Speer GD's in 165gr, but I am sure you can't go wrong with the Corbon.

I trust the quality control of CCI/Speer/Federal more than Corbon/Peter Pi

I carry Gold Dot. It's cheaper here, and my Glocks feed HP's fine. In a 1911 I'd like some of the Corbon Pow'rBall for added insurance. Do they make it in .45?

Yeah I love the Corbon .45 stuff. It feeds much better in my 1911 than the Gold Dots for some reason.

should be less recoil with the corbon, too.

sort of a philosophical question:

bullet that penetrates and expands
vs.
bullet that fragments violently

i carry corbon in large part because 2 135gr slugs my buddy launched had a bad guy dead before he hit the ground

A G30 lives in the bedroom and seems to love GoldenSabers.
They're the NON +P, just in case the wife needs to feed it.

+1 on corbons quality control i once bought a half empty box. + i've heard bad things about varying pressures with the corbons.

I wanted to get osme here, but I have had a hard time finding them local.

Cor Bon sounds cooler and has higher velocity

main reason I'm using it is I seem to be getting tighter groups with the Corbons, at least 3/4" difference or better at 25 yards.

While standard CorBon loads are hotter than the standard Speers, the Gold Dot is a superior bullet design. It provides better penetration in tissue, more reliable expansion, and is well suited for defeating common barriers such as sheet metal and windshield glass.

I prefer high velocity rounds and I carry the 124 grain +p Gold Dots in my 9mms, including my G19.

That doesn't concern me much in a self defense round. I am much more interested in terminal bullet performance than tiny groups.

Yep. 165grs at 1200+fps.

With terminal performance being so close with modern bullet design, I say go with what your gun likes, twonami. Extra accuracy is kinda nice, ya know?

Oh, and most of the Cor-Bon quality control reputation come from the knock-off crap that circulated for a while back in the '90's. I've never had any problem with their stuff and I've shot 9mm, .40, .45, and 10mm going back to the late '80's.

They make Pow R Balls in .45 Lots of folks here we inimpressed by them IIRC. They are accurate though.
