I am looking for some way to determine what projectile is used in generic "55 gr soft point" for duty use ammunition.
I am working hard on updating our depts training, maintenance, firearms and ammunition program.
We just dumped Hunters Shack ammunition finally, and switched over to a new supplier. I spec'd out Speer Gold Dot, Winchester Ranger or Hornady Critical Duty 64 gr nickel case for duty ammunition and a brass case ball round for practice.
Somewhere in the convoluted chain of command, that specific recommendation became "55 gr PSP from wherever is cheapest for duty practice" I am assured by the guy that likely did the switch that this is "a good duty bullet". I remain uncomforted.
How do I figure out what bullet is in this years duty ammunition?
