    I carry whatever 124gr HP we have in stock at the gunshop where ai work. Right now mostly 124gr Gold Saber in my Browning HP, Glock 19, and P7M8 carry guns. Wife has 115gr Gold Dot in her Glock 26. The dedicated HD Glock 17 is full of 115gr +P Cor Bon. Its the only gun I run +P in.
    Try not to screw up so bad they name the screw up after you. (Station 15 saying)

    What's the advantage of bonded bullets? If they make frangible bullets specifically for self defense than why do you need a bonded bullet for self defense?

    You don't need a bonded bullet, but a bonded bullet has it's advantages:
    A bonded bullet retains it's weight better. This leads to improved penetration and barrier penetration. If a bullet holds together every time, it's performance will be more consistent and reliable. Police agencies use bullets that can penetrate hard barriers like glass and car doors without losing their weight and penetration. If I'm using a high velocity handgun round for SD like a .357 Sig, I would probably use a bonded bullet to retain bullet weight.

    A fragmenting bullet can shed it's jacket, lose it's core and have less consistent performance. Proponents of fragmenting bullets may like the minimal penetration or fragments of lead/copper left in the wound channel of their attacker. Unless you're planning on your attacker of dieing from an infection I don't see the point in that.

    DO NOT use frangible rounds like Extreme Shock or Glaser Safety Slugs for self defense. They have inconsistent fragmentation and consistently poor performance and penetration. It's all fake marketing hype that sells these extremely expensive rounds.

    I personally don't carry a bonded bullet, but the HSTs I carry hold together very well through barriers and gelatin tests. In tests I've seen, they have approximately 100% weight retention.

    I wouldn't choose to carry either of the rounds you carry. Use a premium JHP defense load. Modern ammunition has greatly increased the effectiveness of handgun calibers over the days of lead round nose .38 specials. A quality expanding bullet simply makes a much larger hole and damages much more flesh than one that does not expand. A bullet that passes through without depositing all or most of it's energy/velocity is very likely to seriously harm or kill anyone behind your intended target.

    Here's a ballistic test of the 147gr WWB JHP. It is not good. Winchester 9mm 147 gr JHP (WWB) - YouTube

    If you're going to carry one weapon, might as well carry two, because as the saying goes, "Two is one, and one is none."
