Double Tap 230 gr FP FMJ

Does anyone have a picture of this product:

http://www.doubletapammo.net/index.p...product_id=663

I want to know if the edges of the flat point are sharp or rounded. There is no picture on their website.

It is supposed to be full metal jacket, so I'm fairly certain it has a bit of a radius at the edge of the meplat. Probably very similar to the old Hornady FMJ-FP.

Even without a pic, it's probably safe to say: It's a freight train of a load.

I've not used the DoubleTap, but I have loaded and shot close to 100k of the 230 gr Hornady FMJ-FP, both for combat pistol match use, and other uses. I can testify that at 925 fps it was an absolute killer of a load. If the DoubleTap is loaded to anywhere near that level, it will kick ass and take names.

1000 FPS @ 511 ft. lb. of energy out of a stock 1911? Better put in a much stronger recoil spring. Definitely kick a__! How much of this stuff will a 1911 take?

I have some Hornady 230gr +P JHP that are true ass kickers.

If you want something softer shooting, WWB 185 fmj have a flat point. If you can find them.

As Rifter mentioned they are slightly rounded for feeding purposes but they have a pretty good sized flat point on them.
