Why is your 9mm slower that your .380? What are the bullet weights? How is x-fire better than other ammo?

TR, The bullet weights are as follows: 458 45/70 220gr 45 170gr 44 190gr 40 135gr 38/357 116gr 9MM 105gr .380 67gr
To answer your question on velocity. We have a good combination for the .380 it allows a lot of velocity without the pressures. This is due to the driving bands. It is true on all of the driving band bullets we make. Our 45 ACP is running from 1096-1104 FPS.
We are cutting a small driving band vs swaging the whole bullet. It gives me more velocity.
Why is our ammo better? Think of bullets/ammo as hammers in the tool box. There are a lot of different hammers in the tool box. All are a hammer, all pound, but each hammer does a specific job better than any other hammer in the tool box.
X-Fire ammunition is not for target shooting or for an afternoon of blasting tin cans, myself, I hope you do use it for that! <smile> It would mean more sales for me! <GRIN>
The bullet is designed to hit and act like a FMJ on any type of hard target, it also has a unique design feature. IF it hit ANYTHING that has fluid or acts like a fluid. Its primary design takes over. The fluid exerts hydraulic pressure at the nose of the projectile forcing the petals to start to open. This happens because of the way the bullet is designed and machined.
I created as an example, 9MM Version 1 which penetrates 12 1/2" into ballistic gel at 6 feet and opens up bigger than a quarter. Version 2 opens up bigger than a 50 cent piece but only penetrates 8 1/2" into gel at 6 feet. Version 2, I would use and feel comfortable hitting a bad guy and knowing it will not pass through. I settled on producing version one for commercial sales.
Folks, it used to matter what caliber of a handgun you kept or carried. In my opinion it no longer matters. What does matter is the type of ammunition you use in it! I would match my .380 round against most any other caliber for performance. The bullet opens up to .835 in gel before it frags and total penetration is 12 1/2" at 6 feet.
All of the above information is based upon my actual testing of the ammunition.
