Would that round be okay for a carry round in my P30L? I know the bullet is designed for short barrels, but would there be any performance issues in a longer barrel?
+1My guess would be that a bullet designed to expand at the lower velocities attained in short-barreled pistols might over-expand at higher velocities which, in turn, could adversely affect penetration depths. I can't think of a good reason not to use regular ammo in pistols with normal length barrels.
A good, general rule to follow is to "use the right tool for the job."
In that case load up my friend.Oh, its just stuff I had lying around and I didn't want to spend the extra cash if I didn't have to.
