    I have switched to the FED HST in 147gr for my carry guns (Glock26, Kahr PM9 and Glock19). Here is a post from another thread (*you would be served well if you read the whole thread I took this from) that lists the best loads for PD.

    Use the ranger ammo then, it is good stuff and if it works in your gun
    don't worry about the other stuff. I've seen testing that showed
    there is not a whole lot of difference between SD ammo, except hydrashok tends to come apart. Having said that, I'd still use it with no worries.

    I really like the Corbon DPX in my service XD-9, but that said it is expensive stuff and I cringe if I shoot it for practice.

    Try Double Tap ammo for some Speer Gold Dot loads at pricing you can at least practice with.
