    I’ve shot the liberty ammunition, and it really doesn’t recoil hard. The problem i have with them is they are pushing 100 power factor based on the box. I’ve chronographed them and they are pretty accurate in terms of the posted velocity. If you look at it from an IDPA standpoint, you can’t even use these to compete with as the minimum power factor for SSP & ESP is 125. 

    The nice thing is they are fragmenting rounds, so they will break up quickly. The other advantage to them is they are super lightweight. That may not seem like a lot, but in the middle of the summer, 10 rounds of the 50 grain 9mm liberty ammunition is half the weight of the standard 124 grain defensive ammo. This may or may not be an issue for some people, but I did notice the lack of weight when i used them in my “pre-recall, used to be a good gun but now it sucks and has been sold Springfield XDS”

    I bought the rounds initially to test them out compared to other defensive rounds. I think they recoil less then standard 124 grain FMJ bullets from a Glock 17 barrel. I also tested them in a Glock 19 and Glock 26. If you put them against 124grain +p ammo, the 124 has noticeably more recoil. (my opinion)

    Regardless, give them a try. You may like them. I still think I would use them in the summer months just for their weight advantage. But, right now if you were to look at what I am carrying, you would see the Hornady Critical Duty.

    Sorry, I should have been more clear. I wouldn’t use it in competition either. Although, I have had people on a couple of squads who were shooting actual defensive ammo. I like to throw money away as much as the next guy, but it’s hilarious and painful to watch a guy dump $200 in ammunition in one day.

    The principles of IDPA are to use a round you would want for defense, not just target ammo. Thus, the minimum power factor. I’ve always used their minimum power power factor as a baseline when determining the value of a round in terms of velocity.

    All great points. I’m not too familiar with idpa. That would be hilariously expensive to shoot with!
