    What kind of sd ammo do you feed your glock 30?

    I recently got my ccw and until now have only fed my glock 30 plinking rounds. I'm curious to see what others who carry the same pistol for self defense feed their gun. As I am a firm believer in shot placement being the goal of self defense I care very little for ballistics as any bullet to the proper place will incapacitate any threat. What I care about and the reason for this post is the reliability of the ammo itself. The ability to feed and cycle properly is what i'm after because if it doesn't go bang every time the trigger if pulled expansion and penetration aren't even going to matter! Once again i'm not really looking for facts on ballistics although I understand it's relevance, i'm looking for opinions on reliability! Thanks!

    Remington 185 gr +p. Or 185 gr golden sabre +p. Both rounds feed superbly with rounded noses. No problems ever!

    Federal hydroshock 230 grain JHP. Excellent expansion on impact and have a better velocity than their 185 grain counterparts.

    I'm interested in the velocity of the Hydroshocks. The 185 grain +p are near 1100 fps.

    So far i'm hearing from the forum and friends is:
    • Federal hydra-shok
    • Cor-bon dpx
    • Speer gold dot
    Any one of these preferred/not recommended?
    We're talking specifically for the glock model 30

    The Hydra=shok is old tech. Worked just fine back in the day, and probably works great today. But if you're looking for a Federal round, not only is HST on the list" from AR15.com (seriously, go read the article now), you'll find it severely cheaper. I pick it up local for under $30 per 50 at tds-us.com, and even if you were to add in shipping, you can get it for about the same price as you could buy 20 rds of most other carry ammo, including Hydra-shok. That's one of the reasons I run HST - though I still fire mostly bulk FMJ, I can afford to buy a box of HST every once in a while to practice.

    Of the three you listed, don't use Hydra-Shok. It is better then a FMJ, but the Cor-bon or Speer is a more reliable expanding bullet. I prefer a regular pressure 230gr. bullet, so I would use Speer Gold Dot's from the three you listed.
