Haven't even heard of it.  I carry the non-light stuff.  What is lite about it?

so they promote it as a lower recoil round.  Looks like the velocity didn't suffer all that much but a lot of that is the lower grain count (100 vs. 115).  It's still supersonic.  Maybe it's a pretty good round for defense.  Will probably not over penetrate.  I'll try them.  :main_thumbs_2up:

I like the stuff. Makes for faster follow up shots. Still penetrates 13.5".

So who's used any?  I've been working on my AR and haven't put up the 9mm steel yet.  Maybe this weekend.  Any one have a range report yet?
