Anyone try the Corbon Pwr'Ball 9x23 ammo?

Anyone try the Corbon Pwr'Ball 9x23 ammo? Any opinions compared to the Winchester White Box? Good, bad, or indifferent?

Just shooting it, it seems hotter, however that is purely speculation. The only way to tell would chronograph the loads.

The white box is the soft point load and they are not as hot as the Silvertips. The Power Ball and the Silvertip should be compared in my thinking.

Just looked at the real numbers and I am surprised the white box is faster than the Silvertips. I have shot both a fair bit and the soft-point seems milder. If I would not have seen your results I would have said the softy was 1250/1300 fps and the Silvertip 1500!

I am going to shoot a penny match tonight and I will take some White Box and Silvertips to see the difference. Ain't it fun :wink:
