PHIL SHOEMAKER, AN ALASKAN GUIDE FOR 33 YEARS, USES 9MM OUTDOORSMAN IN AN S&W 3954 TO STOP AN ATTACKING GRIZZLY
Scroll Down to See This Story

Many folks who enjoy the outdoors are not “gun people”…….they recreate in the outdoors but may own only one or two guns. They may own a typical 9mm pistol for personal protection in the home or on the streets, but they do not own a dedicated outdoors handgun that is the typical “woods” gun, such a 454 Casull or a 44 magnum. We’ve designed this 9mm load, just for those people who own a 9mm pistol and wish to carry it in the woods for defense against black bears or even grizzly. This ammunition will give them a fighting chance and in keeping with that theme, it may be helpful to read my essay on Stopping bears with Handgun or Rifle Cartridges.

This 9mm load is rated @ +P pressures (not +P+) and as such is safe to use in any/all 9mm chambered pistols that are in normal operating condition. The hard cast bullet (not lead, but hard cast) will not lead foul a functional barrel that is in a normal state of operation, including polygonal barrels, in any make of pistol, including Glock pistols. It may be helpful to read my essay on Hard Cast Bullets in Polygonal barrels.

Many encounters with wild animals and the human criminal element will happen in low light and for that reason, we’ve utilized a flash retarded powder in this load. There is no need to be blinded by your own gunfire at the very moment of need when protecting yourself or loved ones.

This load is designed to penetrate deeply (4 to 6 feet) in a straight line, through flesh and bones and that flat nose does considerably more terminal damage, as it crushes its way through tissues, than a round nose bullet does as it slips and slides its way through tissues and that crushing action, keeps the bullet nose forward and ensures very deep straight-line penetration. Round nose bullets tend to get sideways as they slip and slide through tissues and this often causes them to veer off the path. This bullet is designed to crush through a large bear skull, coming and going.

While this bullet will over-penetrate humans, even 300+ lb humans, wearing heavy winter coats, there is nothing wrong with using it for defense against humans in situations where over-penetration is not a liability……..sometimes over-penetration is desirable if we need to shoot through car doors, windshields, stick frame walls, or any other softcover, in stopping a threat.

As per usual, Buffalo Bore does not believe in the industry-wide duplicitous use of extra-long laboratory test barrels to determine published velocities. These barrels do not give real-world velocities, but always give much higher velocities than stock firearms. Below, see the velocities developed by some of my personal 9MM pistols. All of these pistols cycled/functioned flawlessly with this load and gave anywhere from good to excellent accuracy.

➤  1,088 fps ------ SIG P226 Elite - with a 5-inch threaded barrel     
➤  1,116 fps ------ H&K USP Tactical - with a 4.7-inch threaded barrel
➤  1,096 fps ------ Browning Hi-Power - with a 4.6-inch barrel
➤  1,083 fps ------ Glock model 19 - with a 4-inch barrel
➤  1,089 fps ------ Walther P88 - with a 4-inch barrel
➤  1,021 fps ------ Ruger LC9 - with a 3-inch barrel
➤  1,024 fps ------ SIG P938 - with a 2.9-inch barrel

ALASKAN GUIDE, PHIL SHOEMAKER, USES 9MM OUTDOORSMAN ROUNDS IN An S&W 3954 TO STOP AN ATTACKING GRIZZLY - See story and photos below.

Tim,

Two days ago I was guiding a couple from NY on a fishing trip and decided to pack my S&W 3954 pistol. When we were approaching the stream we bumped into a large boar who must have been sleeping as we were talking loud just so we wouldn't surprise one.  Over the past 33 years I have lived and guided here on the Alaska peninsula I have never had to kill a bear in defense of life but this bear was different.  

We were in thick brush and I was only 8 or 10 feet from the bear when he started growling and huffing.  I began yelling and it eventually ran around, behind my two clients, into the brush.  But within 15 seconds it came charging back from the area behind us and popped out of the brush 10 feet from me!   I had the little S&W in my hands and was thinking I was probably going to have to shoot it but as it cleared the brush it headed toward my clients.  The man had enough sense to grab his wife and fall backward into the tall grass.  The bear seemed to lose track of them, even though it was less than 3 feet away from them and it was highly agitated!  It then swung toward me, I was 6 or 8 feet away, and I fired the first shot into the area between the head and shoulder.  It growled and started wildly thrashing around, still basically on the feet of my clients. My next shot hit it in the shoulder and it began twisting and biting at the hits and I continued firing as fast as I could see vitals. Five shots later it turned into the brush and I hit it again and it twisted and fell 20 feet from us!  

We hiked out and I flew back to camp to report the incident to F&G and pick up my daughter to go back and skin the bear for F&G. 

You are the first person I  have told this story to as I haven't decided whether to write it up or not, or where, but thought you should know that your ammo WORKS.   We recovered 4 of the bullets and I took a photo of the back of the bear after the hide was removed that shows an entry on one side of the back and the tip of the bullet on the off side ...

Buffalo Bore review 

p 147-grain penetrator 9x19mm

In 02.2021 I was hunting wild boar in Northeast Texas and engaged one at 50 yards with my scoped rifle loaded with soft point rounds. After three shots to the braincase my rifle the boar was still attempting to stand up and probably run, so I walked closer, and upon attempting to shoot a fourth-round my rifle jammed. 

Upon realizing the jam I immediately transitioned to my Sig Sauer P226 handgun, firing one shot through the exposed neck and into the braincase. Soon after that shot, the boar ceased movement. During the quartering and butchering process, the 115-pound boar showed three large exit wounds from the rifle rounds with brain matter exposed. Against expectations, only the Buffalo Bore P 147 Grain Outdoorsman bullet was recovered, as will be shown here if attaching images is possible! I'll never trust another handgun round for backcountry protection.

I carry a Kimber micro 9 with night sights as my sidearm while night hunting for wild hogs here in Florida. The 147 gr. Outdoorsman load has proved EXTREMELY reliable and deadly on these tough beasts. Used as mostly finishing shots; however a month ago probably saved me serious injury or death on an unusually large "dead" 300 lb boar. My primary gun is a Ruger .357 magnum bolt action carbine loaded with handloaded 180 gr hard cast bullets @ 1700 FPS. This combination has dispatched well over 100 hogs with carefully placed neckhead shots. This very large boar (with 5" tusks) went down as if poleaxed at the shot between his eye and ear. I waited and watched him a few minutes with the red predator light mounted on top of the scope. Satisfied he was done; I climbed down from my stand and approached him, leaving the rifle in the stand. Upon reaching him; he suddenly jumped to his feet and began running and squealing blindly while hooking imaginary foes with his tusks. I drew the tiny Kimber just as his head was clearing. He spotted me just as I fired the first 147 gr bullet. 5 more bullets were needed to stop this stunned boar plus another behind his ear. After my heart started beating again; I found my first .357 bullet had hit low through his upper jaw just knocking him temporarily out but not hitting any vital area. The 9 mm bullets all penetrating through the tough shield and heart/lungs. Thanks Buffalo Boar for providing a truly effective load. You can depend on these loads for stopping very dangerous animals when called upon.

I gather firewood for the local LIEAP in black bear and grizzly country. You would think all the noise we make such as the truck chainsaws and us hollering around at each other the bears and mtn lions would be long gone but there's always a good chance I could stumble into one and need some well aimed firepower. All I have is a Glock 19 gen 4 except a 30-30 long barrel which isn't very handy at ALL times. From what I know I'd need a heavy for caliber hopped up load to even stand a chance or even then. I've never saw HC bullets so I gave these a try. I got 2 boxes one to try out and one for actual woods carry. These are quite accurate and they really hit with authority for a 9mm load. There's a 17 round mag loaded up for the bear and cat country for just in case and readily accessible for me.

I have the BB for both my M&P 2.0 9mm and my M&P 2.0 45ACP full-size. I'm thinking if the 9mm can kill a bear as mentioned, then my 45ACP with the BB 45ACP 255 grain +P Hardcast FN should be just as good if not better. I feel much better carrying my 45 as a woods gun when it's loaded with Buffalo Bore.

I have been shooting this 9mm Outdoorsman ammo for years out of my G17, G19 and G26 without ever having a malfunction. It hits hard and is very accurate. I have shot this load for years out of a stock glock barrel, a KKM barrel and a Lone Wolf barrel. but mostly the stock barrel. I have never seen any lead build up, EVER. I do clean the barrel after every time I shoot them just in case, but just to be clear, there has never been any lead build up in my stock glock barrel or my other aftermarket barrels. I don't have a stronger recoil spring assembly either. I use the plastic RSA the glock comes with. I shoot the cheaper Magtech 147gr FMJFN for a little extra practice and I can't tell the difference in power. both pack a good punch. I can tell you these do not have near the punch as the Penetrator or the P 115gr HPs. Might want to get a tougher spring for those. I have 22lb Gen 3 RSAs with the Gen4 adapter when I shoot those. Those two P loads have never shot consistently out of my G26 so I don't even mess around with them anymore with the G26. Never a malfunction in the G19 & G17 though. Just to be clear, I have never had a malfuntion with the 9mm Outdoorsman in my G26. I am mostly in the woods at parks with my dogs and I also live deep in the woods so this is my primary carry ammo wherever I go. I used to carry different magazines and switch out HPs when in public but that has gotten old and I think the less you mess with them the better when you are riding around. I don't plan on saving the day in some restaurant anyway. but I do want to be able to save my dogs from larger predators if need be. in the Southeast. I have much bigger arsenal for Big Bear country.

I just got my second order and first from BB direct. I HIGHLY recommend using this in an extra defense mag should you need to shoot an attacker behind cover. I carry one loaded mag for my Mod. 2's and XDs. Outdoors, I carry the .45 hardcast in my Hi Point pistol and Carbine.

I love to test new ammo. Against this hard-cast 147 grain, I selected 147 FMJ FP from Underwood, a hot 124 P FMJ from Fiocchi, A 147 FMJ FP from Doubletap,and a 124 grain P FMJ FP handload. The medium wasn't scientific. Just a pile of newspapers underneath a hard 2 x 12 board. The Buffalo Bore hardcast out-penetrated everything else. It was a solid 1 1/2" deeper than the second place bullet, the Underwood 147. The amount of damage was also much greater. Here's the most important point. Nearly 100% of the bullet was left, WAY AHEAD of the others. It doesn't get any better for woods protection.

Friends and Customers, 08-18-20

IF YOU DO NOT READ THIS, IT IS ON YOU!

All shooters are being inconvenienced with what is happening to our society and the rush it is causing on ammo supplies. We have LOTS of ammo in stock and are making more at a huge volume on a daily basis. If our web site allows you to order any item, that means it is in stock—WE DO NOT TAKE ORDERS FOR ITEMS WE DO NOT HAVE! So, please do not email and ask if items are in stock. If they aren’t, the shopping cart will not take your order.

We have hundreds of customers to get orders to on a daily basis. In order for us to accomplish this for our customers, we ask the following.

  1. Be sure of what you are ordering. You are going to get what you ordered.

  2. Do not contact us and ask to change an order you’ve already placed. When we manually change orders it requires a lot of time that we do not have during this rush and it keeps us from serving all of our customers. If you’d like to change an order, we can no longer do that till things slow down, so simply place another order for more product, but PLEASE, NO MORE CHANGES after the fact!

  3. We NEVER have and never will take ammo exchanges or returns and then turn around and re-sale that ammo to unsuspecting customers as factory new ammo—this is not safe nor is it fair to customers who are buying what they think is new and safe ammo. No ammo is tamper proof! So please stop asking to exchange or get a refund for ammo you ordered, but have changed your mind about.

  4. Please do not contact us and ask for tracking numbers or “when will my ammo ship”? Our system automatically emails out tracking numbers on the orders we ship each day, however, because these emails are coming from a corporation shopping cart, many of these emails may go to your spam folder……..please look there. If it is not in your spam folder, that means we have not yet shipped. At current order rates, we are shipping within 5-7 business days of the time an internet order is placed. Please sit tight. Your ammo will arrive at the same time if you track it or not and will certainly arrive later if we are swamped answering questions instead of getting orders shipped. When 30-50 people per day send emails asking for tracking information and we have to pull that information up, then type it out and email it, it takes a huge portion of our work day that we should be using to ship those orders to customers in need. Please leave us alone so we can serve all of you. (ship to you) It’s a bit selfish, during times of shortages, when so many folks need to protect their families, to slow us down because you ordered carelessly or want to change your order. Right now, we expect you to do your part to help us all get the ammo we need in our troubled country.

These measures are hopefully temporary and will not be needed for long as we enjoy the interaction with our customers, so please, for the time being, be mindful of all those others who are also trying to get ammo during what I think is a societal meltdown/emergency. Hopefully, we can serve you all. We want you and your families to be armed and safe and we wish you the best during these trying times. My biggest concern is that things will worsen yet more, for a while. Until things straighten out in our government and society, we will have to streamline our customer service in order to serve all customers. Thank you for your understanding.

Good shooting and God bless,

Tim Sundles
