Anybody know how the new Gold Dot Short Barrel ammo stacks up against the "regular" Gold Dot ammo? My local range got in some .45 230Gr short barrle ammo and I was wondering how it would perform versus the regular stuff. Is it a reduced velocity/power ammo or is it higher velocity? How would it perform out of a full size 1911? The hollow point cavity is different. It is wider and the bottom of it is damn near a floor that you can dance on, lol. Sorry, dont have pics since I dont have a camera. I have looked but cant find any test or review data on it. I wonder if it passes the FBI's tests.

Not a review, but some vendor test data and photos here:

Seen that, still cruising the net for reviews through a full size 1911 and FBI spec tests on the ammo. For now I'm gonna stick with stuff that has been tested and proven.
