Ive never really cared much about this brand over that, just bought and carried stuff that was qaulity, tested (in my guns too) and for self defense. But I read a great article last night on boxotruth called "low light essentials", I would recommend checking it out. The author got into muzzle flash and flash bulbing yourself from your own gun. He had tried alot of the usual carry stuff, like alot of the stuff mentioned so far, at night to see what kind of flash each ammo produced. I know he said winchester ranger was the best. It had something added that makes the flash a reddish orange, instead of yellow or white. I can't remember but he listed the results of a good bit of other stuff. I think in the off chance that I actually did have to use my gun there is prob a really good chance its prob gonna be in a low light situation. I am going to start using ranger for my carry ammo. Just some food for thought.,
The stupidity of some people NEVER ceases to amaze me.
I'm really liking the Hornady 135 +P critical duty, no muzzel flash and very very accurate out of my Glock 26 and 19!!
Winchester Ranger 147gr T-series in my PF-9 carry.
