Just received an order from Buffalo Bore-Tactical Short Barrel Lower Recoil Low Flash 357 mag ammo Item 19G-125gr. JHP (quite a mouthful) When ordering from Buffalo Bore website, the photo of the ammo I ordered showed, what I believe to be Speer Gold Dot. The photo also displayed the Buffalo Bore label/box which reads Speer JHC. I assumed I would receive ammunition loaded with the Gold Dot bullet. Much to my suprise, when inspecting the ammo upon it's arrival, I was disappointed to see what appears to be a Montana Gold JHP instead of the Speer Gold Dot. ************** (edited by site admin MikeG) The Montana Gold bullet looks like a Hornady XTP with a slightly deeper cavity. Does anyone have experience with the Montana Gold bullet? Does it expand reliably? What kind of expansion am I looking at? Is there a problem with jacket/ core separation? It's still a 357 magnum, and I'm sure someone struck with one would still fold up like a card table, but I paid for Gold Dot not Mantana Gold.
