Anybody got any real-world data on this round? I couldn't get Hydra-Shocks, local gun shoppe was out so I bought these.
Never used Hornady ammo before. Box says 960fps, little slower than 230gr.HS.

You must have a fast gun, I don't recall exactly what HS clocked in my 1911, but it wasn't faster than 960 fps. Unless you're going by box claims.

To paraphrase the most interesting man in the world... "I don't always carry a 45, but when I do, I carry Hornady TAP 230's."

I think it is one of the best self defense load for the 45's (along with Ranger-T 230 +p). I like the extra oomph that the +p gives, but it's not excessive at all in a large frame gun. I have done no testing at all with the round for penetration or expansion. I just know it feeds well in all of my 45s and is accurate (including the 200 gr version).
