Hornady critical duty must be better off. I've shot a 3 hundredish 135gr +p through my usp9 with 0 problems. Plus several thousand of the 135gr training ammo.
Me: USP Tactical 45, USP 9, P226 Extreme .40, 97B, & a G43
Wife: LCR .38 Special Ltd. Talo edition, P238 Spartan
i'm not brand loyal, when it comes to a vehicle, i don't buy it for its looks or popularity, show me what's under the hood and how reliable is the motor . when i set out to find the most reliable weapon for CCW, i did not feel comfortable carrying my g19 . i have always loved the 1911 platform, so i researched and ask other experts for an honest opinion . i kept getting the same answer, H&K USP 45/USP 45c . bought 'em, carry 'em, bet my life on 'em . the USP 45 is one of the most reliable weapons ever made PERIOD .
yall know my coined saying,
Browning made history, Heckler & Koch made it better !
Interesting that a caliber like the 9, apparently under-powered (as far as mechanical beat-up to the gun goes) should be the problem child. You'd think the larger calibers would pound them faster/harder/better/sooner.
When I first time looked at mine USP 45 I knew it will survive a lot. That is why I got it! :) It is german tank!
