    Does anyone have significant experience (especially for CCW use)with Double Tap ammo?
    I was thinking their 147 gr. "+P" Gold Dot 1120 fps loading might be nice in my M9.
    And their .45 ACP 230 gr. Gold Dot loading at 1010fps / 521 ft.-lbs. is about half the cost of the Buffalo Bore 45 Super 230 gr. XTP 1100 fps / 618 ft.-lbs. loading I currently use in my Colt 1991-A1.

    TIA

    The members of the 10mmtalk.com board really love the DoubleTap ammo. I intend to order some for my .40 Steyr as soon as I can get the $$$ together for a bulk purchase.

    I've only tried their 230gr. .45 offering. It seems like just the ticket for a short barreled .45. It's always functioned flawlessly and makes my USPc thump like the hammer of thor. I've never chrono'd it, but they claim 5" velocities from the shorter barrel.

    I have shot Double Tap in my 357 Sig, 45 Gap, and 10mm.
    Only shot at paper, very satisfied with accuracy and reliability.
    Also good and fast service from Double Tap.

    Good ammo....I have shot quite a bit of it in my Glock model 20's 10mm good higher pressure loadings....

    I use it for ccw in my Glock 29 10mm.

    Fired a few hundred in my 6946 and it was good stuff. I carry it in my M357 daily. Low flash and recoil in both,very accurate.They offer C&R discount as well.
