    Default What is your self defense ammo?

    I need to rotate my 9mm carry ammo out, it's been a long while since last time I rotated and each round probably went thru few eject-rechamber rotations. I've been using Corbon DPX for many years, but from what I'm hearing they are having issues and problems now so need to figure out what brand to buy.

    What do you guys carry normally, the maker the line the grains? Thanks a lot.

    I can't help you much. My carry guns are all .45 ACP. I carry Speer Gold Dot HP of the 230gr variety. They work well in all my .45s. I have never had any issues with them or seen any bullet set back, Yes I check it with vernier calipers.

    You may find the 9mm gold dot hard to find as the french ordered them for all their police dept.

    I carried gold dots without really doing much research. Recently I came across this and decided I would be better off with Federal 124gr hst+p.

    Same here it seems to perform better then all other self defense loads with penetration and expansion in the standard and +p versions. It can also be found between $20.00 and $25.00 per 50 round box which is a big plus.

    OP here is a very well done and detailed series comparing many popular brands of 9MM SD ammunition using the FBI standards and protocols done by Shooting The Bull.com

    And how many shootings have you used it in?

    Don't know anyone who was ever attacked by a block of Jello.

    They probably stuffed the hollow cavities with foul smelly cheese.
