    I would have to say the Hydra shocks i've used them and i know people who have used them to defend themselfs and their clients with great success, for a 9mm that is.

    Federal's HST ammo is generally seen as the "successor" to Hydra-Shoks, and have proven to perform very well in various tests, including the one Cat-O-Matic cites above. They are labeled as 'law enforcement only', but can be found online pretty easily.

    I read something years ago that said the best of the nines was Illinois State Police load. It is the Federal 9BPLE 115 JHP +P+. We have had a couple of different people in the White House since then so some of the newer designs might be better, but I would be perfectly comfortable with those. Right now I have Ranger +P in my magazines. It cycles perfectly in my pistols and they shoot nice groups for me. Thats about all I can ask for from a cartridge.

    ...from your list...Speer Gold Dots...but whatever works best in a particular sidearm...no universal best choice.
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.

    You omitted 147 gr ammo, so I can't really poll.
    147 gr Ranger SXT (+P when I find them) are my choice.

    Stay safe,

    Chuck Brick.
    Why do I use 230 gr. for my .45acp?
    Because I can't find a source of 250 gr!
