    They're Corbon Glasser Pow'r Ball. It has a polymer ball inserted into a really wide hollow point. It has two purposes. It gives a "round-ball" profile to a hollow point for guns that jam with hollow points (not why I bought it). The second is that the polymer ball will push open the hollow point in a short barrel 45 with a lower velocity (that's why I bought them). I use them in my 3" Colt Defender.

    So it's just a hollow point shaped like a FMJ for feed reliability? How is the performance of that round in a 5" barrel 1911?

    I have never had them jam in anything and they have a high velocity for a 45. In a 5" they approach 1300fps but they are also very light bullets (165 grains). I figure its a 40 cal bullet weight with a 9mm velocity and a 45 cal diameter; what's not to like?

    Is it a +P or something?

    I was wondering. When I saw 1300 fps I thought it was 10mm Auto for a second, but I heard .45 ACP +P travels around the same speed as factory 10mm Auto.

    The factory specs say 1225fps, but I have had them clock in at near 1270fps. Great stuff.
