There are purpose built bullets that expand well below 1800fps.

What is your pistol of choice concealed carry?

Currently Glock 29.

I have plenty that I run a rotation on but the G29 was my original carry pistol and will always see a good bit of carry time.

As to why, well............

Just FYI, you should not shoot 308 Winchester ammo in a 7.62 x 51 chamber. It is just the opposite of the 5.56 versus 223 issue.

Canít say I agree with that statement on the Grendel. Mine carries 1000 foot pounds of energy just beyond 500 yards and is still super sonic to nearly 1100 yards.
