I carry this in my M&P 40 compact daily. Cycles fine and is as accurate as I am able to shoot. I have no complaints about this ammo at all. Will be adding it for my 9mm and .45 soon as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jskiffer A Wonderful Buying Experience !
I have recently made two separate purchases of ammunition through BassProShops. Prices were the best in the marketplace. The transaction was seamless. Delivery was swift. I am delighted, and will most certainly conduct more business with this fine Online retailer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by RickWright Pretty pricey
I have shot some Double Taps with a lot more energy that performed better and were less money. The recoil was more than a 230 gr. FMJ, with smaller bullet. Not sure yet which I will carry. Was hoping for a lighter recoil for indoor defense situations. The 9mm CD is fantastic. The .45 I bought I am not yet convinced on.
