I received a box of 50 9mm Cor-Bon “Urban Response” loads today. These came direct from Corbon since I can’t seem to find them in stock at any online retailer yet. These were announced over this past summer as a new release, but have only just come into production recently apparently. They seem to be like a Corbon Pow’Rball, but with a slightly softer ballistic tip, and probably a couple other minor difference that I can’t detect. These are 100gr +P, and clock a speedy 1475 fps. These are along the lines of the recently evolving ballistic tip loads like the Hornady Critical Defense / Critical Duty, or more similarly the Nosler bonded-tipped 9mm, which prevent plugging and aid in uniform expansion. I would say that this is almost a re-branding of their Pow’Rball line into a cooler more tactical sounding self-defense line, which is the trendy thing nowadays. Indeed, the original prototype-label seen in the bottom photo which was posted over the summer at the Tactical-Life blog shows printing identifying the load as a “100gr Pow’Rball”, but no link to the Pow’Rball brand is found on the current production boxes. Thanks to Dave Call for pointing this release out to me.
