And they were.Since acquiring a Glock 21 (my first .45), I started shopping for some premium SD ammo to feed it. It seems that many believe that the 230gr. Hydra-Shoks are the cream of the crop, yet I cannot find them ANYWHERE. No local stores have them, and they seem to be on never-ending backorder through the online retailers that I've checked with (Midway USA, Cabela's, and a slew of lesser-knowns). What gives?
Does anyone know of an online retailer that actually has the aforementioned product AVAILABLE?
For the time being, I've settled for some 185gr Golden Sabres from a local gun store, but I'm still interested in the hydra-shoks if I can find them. The only .45 hydra-shoks I've ever actually seen in any stores locally are the 165gr "low-recoil" ones.
The Federal HST is a better design and one which you may want to consider in your new G21.
