I recently made my first purchase from Bayou in search of a Hard Cast for my .40 that I could load very light for practice but also push hard for woods use. I already reviewed the 147 gr 9mm and this bullet hits the mark for my .40. Gun is a Glock 23 w/KKM aftermarket barrel. I've been using 165 & 180 gr plated bullets and they have shot very well. However, the ones I've been using are (IMO) too soft for woods use. From Bayou, I tried both the 165 FP and the 175 SWC. Both had good accuracy but the 175s proved to be problematic in feeding. However, these HC 165s gave equivalent feeding to the plated and of course a much harder bullet for woods carry. I loaded these to about 775 fps for practice and about 1150 for the woods. I was really interested in the 175 SWC but these 165s hit the mark right away and I told myself "don't overthink it" So.....one bullet for both target/training and the woods which was what I wanted!!!

I download these to around 135 power factor to shoot in IDPA CCP class with a Glock 23. Very good consistency and accuracy. I have fired over 6.000 of these bulllets with 100% reliability CP on 30th Apr 2018
After purchasing a Ruger SR1911 10 mm I wanted to try a mix of coated and jacket bullets. I loaded 50 of each and headed to the range. Being a new pistol and me being old school I still believe in a break in period. The coated bullets at 25 yards were as good as the plated bullets.
Two inch groups at 25 yards. These coated bullets are awesome.
Thank you Bayou Bullets, you made a believer out of me. Freddie 12-4-2017 on 5th Dec 2017
