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".
