    147gr HST, Ranger-T, or Gold Dots. Whatever I've recently picked up for a good price.

    On the muzzle flash topic, I thought I'd add a little something. I just went on a training course which involved some low light training. Almost everyone was using home defense type weapons, meaning there were no snubbies or subsubsub compacts. Glock 19s, Sig P226/229, were the kinds of weapons and everyone had basic range ammo of the FMJ variety.

    In the low (not zero) light shooting without flashlights I don't even remember seeing muzzle flash from my gun (P226), probably because most of it was going forward and the recoil hid it from view? I was at the end of the firing line so I looked down the line at all the other shooters and saw a lot of the muzzle flash. Almost all were a red/orange color, perhaps 3-6 inches in length but not that big of a flash at all. IMO, the worst offender was the revolver as part of the flash comes out the sides due to the way revolvers are built.

    This has made me skeptical that reduced muzzle flash ammo is some kind of special thing, as I wasn't the only one using el-cheapo range ammo. Federal American Eagle in my case.

    I have lots of Cor-Bon 115GR +P 9MM, a ton of Ranger T's +P+ 127GR. Neither has any detectable flash at my indoor gun range that has very low light in it. I had some older Cor-Bon not all copper bullets that had a low red glow not flash when shot. I do not have any more of those. I like both the Cor-Bon and Ranger T's.

    I'm gonna throw some DoubleTap 124gr. 9mm Bonded Defense down range next weekend. If the recoil is manageable then that will be my carry round. I'm almost positive I won't have any feeding issues in my Kahr.
