I'm considering buying a Glock 30, but I'm a little concerned about penetration from the shorter barrel. I'm sure I could go with a lighter bullet, and improve it somewhat, but then I feel like I'd lose too much energy. What I'd really like to find is a 185-200 gr. +P+ JHP that's known for reliable expansion, but not the "pancake" kind. I like expansion that leaves sheer edges on the bullet, like Barnes' copper X bullets tend to have. Does anyone know of a round like that? I'll cave and go with a more conventional hollowpoint, if need be, but I'd really like to find something that opens up in a little more jagged of a pattern.

I believe Corbon offers a 185+P using the Barnes X bullet; It expands and doesn't flatten out as well as their "Compact Gun Load" in .45 ACP @ 160 grs and standard pressure.

Best.

FYI, I've had a couple of failures to expand (in water) with the 185gr Silvertip in a G30.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Pat
