I carry Speer 230gr. Gold Dot in my 1911
How about you?
Hornady 115 gr XTP hollow point in my sr9c
Hornady tap in my Beretta px4 storm 9mm
Federal HST 147gr or Winchester Ranger Bonded 147gr
Speer gold dot +p 124gr 9mm
another vote for Federal HST, 230gr.
Federal "guard dog". Lame name, but I like the ammo.
A mix of JHP & FMJ 115 gr UMC in my PF9.
Same as omenwolf - 9mm Speer Gold Dot 124gr +P. I've read many favorable things about this particular load. 410 ft-lbs at the barrel is very good. Cor-Bon makes a +P 9mm that is 125gr and delivers 434 at barrel.
BTW, I've read that carrying homebrew ammo is not the best idea. If you have to use your gun, would you rather testify in court:
(1) "I used ammunition commonly available at any sporting goods store or Wal-mart."
(2) "I made the ammunition myself, loading a 124 grain hollowpoint on top of IMR 4064, tweaking a recipe I've been researching for several months..."
Gun people know that (2) vs (1) is immaterial - it's your actions not the details of your ammunition that matter. But to an ignorant jury member, (2) makes you sound like a gun nut instead of just another citizen.
I'm not a lawyer...just what I've read...
15+ year old Winchester 200gr Silver Tips in .44spl.
125gr Hornady HP XPT in .38spl.
35gr Hornady XPT Critical defense in .24ACP
Just depends on me mood.
Same here using 124gr GDHP's and Vihtavouri 3N37 for my 9mm. Why pay three or four times the cost for the same round. I practice with used cases and load for carry with new. After a year the "new" then becomes "used" and I load some more "new".
Barnes solid copper HP. 185gr in 45 acp.
Yep, me too
Federal Premium 230 gr. HST Law Enforcement version. Because it's tactical! Got a deal on several 50 round boxes. Make it easy to blow up clay pigeons at 75 yards. Moving on to PNW Arms loaded 185 gr ssolid copper hollow points when the other stuff is gone. Yes, every other month I shoot and rotate my loaded carry mags. Call me crazy, you wouldn't be the first.
147 gr. pdx1 in my m&p 9c currently. Too expensive, but I didn't want to wait on getting the ammo shipped (so I could actually carry).
Speer Gold Dots and i sometimes carry those evil Black Talons ...
Critical Defense in both .40 xd and sr9c.
Hornady Critical Defense in 9mm and .22 magnum.
Separate names with a comma.
