I can report that Fort Scott Munitions has tested their ammunition during hunts and found it to be effective in killing with one shot.
Recently, FSM was gracious enough to send TFB some rounds for testing. The first two loads tested from FSM (Fort Scott Munitions) were .300 Blackout and 9x19mm, both were 115gr SCS TUI loads.

FSM’s 115gr 9mm comes 20 to a box. The box itself is quite
