DoubleTap Ammunition is the only commercial ammo manufacturer I know of that loads Nosler target bullets for defensive purposes. This might sound like a bad idea, but if you drive these Nosler bullets fast enough, they expand very well and will chew up the inside of a gelatin block. Despite this load's nearly 1,100 fps velocity, it was not uncomfortable to shoot from a Glock 22 and was very accurate to boot.
