Sorry, didn’t equate that with “Border Patrol”. Still...what do they need the ammunition for? If they use it, they’ll get imprisoned.

“...designed for the office... “

Good to hear that. I prefer the Win 175 grain Silvertip myself. Hope to still be able to get it. Then there is the 165 grain for 40S&W, and 180 grain for 10mm. so they can have the 135 grainers. Remington makes the Golden Saber and JHP's that work well, so we should still be good to go.
