    Nah, looked it up for ya......
    From the Cor-Bon website:

    New Bullet Design

    Available Now in:

    45 ACP, 40S&W, 400 CORBON, 357Sig, 10mm, 9mm, 38special, 38super, 357mag, 9X23.

    Cor-Bon is proud to announce a new line of premium high velocity ammunition loaded with the new Pow´RballTM bullet.

    The Pow´RballTM is a breakthrough concept; developed by renowned bullet maker Peter R Pi. It is an expanding bullet capped with a polymer ball giving it a full metal jacket or rounded ball profile.

    The new Pow´RballTM ammunition will give the shooter confidence and peace of mind, knowing that there will not be an ammunition feeding problem when the gun is needed in a critical situation. The polymer ball is smooth and slick. It will not hang-up or snag as it guides the cartridge effortlessly into the chamber. The lead bullet core is shaped into a specially designed cavity. Upon entering the target, the softpoint cap promotes controlled expansion of the bullet. The resulting classic mushroom shape dumps all the available energy into the target. Complete energy transfer promotes superior stopping power. The round nose profile is unaffected by heavy clothing. Recovered bullets from test medium have excellent (80% or better) weight retention after 12 to 14 inches of penetration.

    Peter R Pi has a patent applied for on the Pow´RballTM bullet. It will be loaded by Cor-Bon as premium, high velocity ammunition, at competitive pricing. The 45ACP+P at 165gr. with a velocity of 1225fps and the 40S&W at 1275fps are available now. .

    The Pow´RballTM bullet will be offered in all of the popular cartridges in the immediate future.

    How's that?
