Just electro plated.

Looks cool, no performance gains.

Our T6B and S4m look cool but the coatings are there to do something not just for show.

FYI

They changed the 40 bullet in the AE.

The new bullet is much better and of better construction.

Instead of plated bullet it has a true jacket, harder then the plated older version, and a swaged lead core.

I am molly coating a bunch and going to play around with them.

The more I messed with them the more the "jacket" was a less a true jacket. The finish, the way it has black particles in it had me looking at it more.

Just my opinion, the jacket seemed jinky to me.

Didn't I don't really collect data like that on FNH ammo anymore.

Going to be interesting to see how the new one performs. For a 40gr bullet it has the bearing surface of a 30gr V-max. Combined with the molly I should be able to make these tings really move.

I may bring them out as the new PenetraTOR depending on how they perform.

This is good info, thanks.

I bought AE to use, in general, but I really don't like it vs the 197. My favorite general-use factory round is still the 195.

For accuracy, but mainly for the impulse/recoil/how the gun reacts. I have a lot more felt recoil w/ the AE for less velocity.

Molly coated and some juice behind them they perform much better then the old 40gr bullets. They would make a nice replacement for the PenetraTOR.

So the plated bullets are slightly smaller causing the setbacks we have been seeing I am assuming. Now that they are FMJing this will be avoided? Can only hope and might redeem their product.

I just got notice that my 2-1/2 year old backorder for 12 boxes of SS197 from Brownell's is shipping. WOW! Good thing is... they gave me the old price of $18.05/box.

It warms my heart to be able to pick up ss197 so cheap from Palmetto State. Their "deal" price has been there for months. With shipping, I can drop $171 and have 10 boxes arrive at my door a few days later. I can't even pick up 10 boxes of new 45ACP that cheap locally. Just place another order today. Did I mention that I really love my gun?

Well, nevermind. The last order of 10 boxes arrived. I was in such a good mood I went online to order another 10; and the price went up to $21.99 a box. Dang it, all I had to do was say something and ruin a good thing. I better go shoot this stuff.
