    Your Magazines: Same ammo in all or no?

    Do you carry the same brand of SD ammo in all your magazines or do you have magazines filled with different brands of SD ammo?

    For home defense I have one mag loaded with 180gr HST and another loaded with 180gr Ranger T. When im out and about I have some bonded rounds loaded in my mags but the main mag is loaded with HST and the secondary mag with Ranger T.

    I initially went with all HST but since I have other brands I decided to load a few mags with them also.

    All the same. It's too expensive for me to run multiple different SD rounds in my SA's to make sure they all feed properly. So far its Remington Golden Sabers 147gr for my 9mm. Both my CZ 75D PCR and my Sig 229Extreme cycle the flawlessly.

    Me also thinks just about any decent SD ammo out there has enough "ouch" factor that one need not multi-stack. Just my opinion.

    Lets see...

    In .40S&W I have one mag Critical Duty,
    One mag of Gold Dot 180, one mag in Winchester PDX-1 165,

    In 9mm I have one mag 135+p Critical Duty, one mag 124+p Golden Saber, one mag of Corbon 115+p.

    That should cover most scenarios! (I hope!)

    Funny you should mention that! As a matter of fact, I want my rounds to go through as much stuff as they can to reach my target.

    (I can also tell you just how the 9mm +p Golden Saber performs through common household materials!)

    Can you say ND!

    I'm running Winchester PDX-1 in everything from a Smith & Wesson snubbie to a Bushmaster carbine.

    The mag in my 1911 is led with one cheap (Fiocchi) JHP, followed with Federal Guard Dogs (EFMJs). My reload mag is full of PMC Gold. So is the next mag.

    Depends on what I grab. HST, Gold Dots, Ranger. Kind of all the same to me. They'll all work.

    I do not load one of this, and then one of that in a single mag, nor carry mags for the same gun with different ammo in each mag.

    I do not understand that concept. Boredom, I guess.
