    Has anyone tried the Underwood ammo in their Makarovs?

    I have tried their +P 95gr. XTP and 115gr. Hard Cast loads and both perform great; excellent quality ammo. Their 95gr. XTP load is the hottest Makarov load out there.

    If there was a "match grade" ammo for the Makarov, Underwood 95 gr. HP is it. Nickle plated, Starline brass cased, Hornady XTP bullet, flash suppressed powder.
    Dead on at 7-10 yds. Cheaper than Buffalo Bore and more energy than Hornady FTX.
    Hardcast 115 gr. for penetration, also nickle plated case...I like it.
    I use a 21# recoil spring in my S/D EG.

    I run their 115g hard cast in my Bulgie Mak with a Wolff 21lbs spring. I've been very pleased with it.

    Do they offer a monolithic, solid copper bullet now?

    Default Underwood solid copper

    Yes, they do make a round with a solid copper bullet. Application might be specific to penetration and price. Wicked.
    I've never bought any. You-Tube examples with other calibers suggest this round could be used in a gunfight in an auto-wrecking yard. LOL.
