    The Winchester 230 grain SXT is my carry load in my LW Commander.

    I've never had a problem or a malfunction with it.

    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    It was issue ammo at my Sheriff Dept for awhile.
    It was good accurate ammo. I think it'll do good for you.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    I use the RA45TP in my normal carry gun, the G21.

    Any of these loads are acceptable though:

    I've been using the 230g SXT in +P. Accurate, reliable, and I'm sure the terminal balisitics are impressive.

    Now it is impossible to find any before late next spring, so I will switch to something else.
