Before you get hysterical, think this over some more and hang-loose until we run that stopping power article soon. Unless you’re approaching rifle velocities, why beat yourself and your handguns up worrying about a gain of 100 or even 300 fps or so? A 950 fps bullet of adequate design will stop someone virtually as well as the same bullet at 1,250 fps, and sometimes better — so it’s time to stop worrying.

Chanceof“positive”eating experiencewithPrimebeef. istolsmith Stan Chen, of Stan Chen Customs, is now crafting some of the absolute finest limited edition ammo around. It’s consistent, accurate and virtually handmade. My favorite load, the .45 ACP SDX, has a 185-gr. Barnes solid copper HP. I just walked in from chrographing some from a 5" Les Baer 1911: 998 fps, 994 fps, 1,001 fps, 998 fps and 995 fps. That consistency bodes well for accuracy, quality and reliability. More and more custom pistolsmiths are using ASYM ammo as their benchmark for accuracy testing. We can see why. www.americanhandgunner.com/ chen-customs i 98% 29% Urban Survival M IL-TAC’s “Urban Survival Pack” (basic) is just that — about everything you’d need in one handy spot when the tornado hits.
