This is a discussion on +P within the Defensive Ammunition & Ballistics forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I have a Kahr P9 that is rated at a +P round. Can someone give me a reccomendation for a personal defense +P round?...

    I choose 124 GD's +P for my 226 SIG - and I'd still consider them even in a shorter barrel. There is tho a large choice out there.

    BTW - thx for your contribution - I noticed your supporter icon was showing disabled - I have corrected that for you.

    One thing to check out before buying a huge number of your +P rounds is do they print to the same point as your practice or non+P ammo. If not, you'd better find a combo of cheap practice ammo and good defensive +Ps that do.

    Probably both rounds in the same weight will print close enough to the same point as to not be a problem, but I'd want to know for sure before spending a bundle on expensive +Ps.

    Speer loads a Gold Dot just for short barrels.

    That's what I carry in my 9c.

    I practice at the range with Winchester white box. How much of a difference is the recoil between that and +P? My personal def rounds at present are Hornady jhp/xtp 124 gr.

    kahr p9

    They were designed with the 124G +p round assumed (NYPD approved backup, off duty ).

    Very good weapon.

    I like Remington's Golden Saber 124 gr.+P. I also like the 124 gr. standard Golden Sabers. (There isn't a whole lot of ballistic difference between them). Both print to very similar points of aim from my K9. Choices listed above are certainly primo stuff, too.

    I believe Matt has your answer. I use the regular 124 gr +P Gold Dots in my Beretta.

    I like the 115 gr. +P Corbon in my Sig 226 that's stashed inside of my home for defense purposes.
