I was shopping around for new loads to try out in my USP40C and came across this Powermax brand. It is a 165 gr Gold Dot bullet loaded to 1000+ fps, I don't remember the the spec's off the top of my head. Has anyone had any experience with this brand?

I also bought a box each of Federal HS 165gr and 180 gr and a box of the Winchester white box. The shop that I was at didn't have any others in stock. Any other suggestions?

Thanks.

Try them and do some testing, if you like them and they are readily available at your shop use them and enjoy.

As far as Gold Dot type rounds, I prefer the Pro Load brand, specifically the 180gr load. Their quality is far above Speer and Georgia Arms, IMHO. I haven't tried the Powermax stuff.

I'm also a big fan of the Winchester USA JHP'S in .40.

Evanmarshal,

What calibers did you end up testing and in which guns? What did you like/dislike about them? I ended up buying a box of 50 to try, but haven't had a chance to get to the range with them yet. I hope to try them out within the next week or so.
