This load is the standard issue load of the NYPD.
I use Cor-Bon, as I have for the past 20 years..... They work because they understand that velocity is the key to performance......

I carry Corbon DPX in .38 special and .45 ACP (as well as .40 S&W). Cheapest I've found is ammunitiontogo.com.

CorBon .45+P, 185 gr Barnes DPX (Kimber Ultra CDP II and Springfield Compact XD45)
I like Cor Bon for all calibers. Pistol calibers only in TOP BRANDS as Sig Sauer, Beretta or Glock weapons for 100% realibility, if cost is a concern, then a good .357 Mag. or .38 Spl. +P, anyway lots of practice is a must.
I use Remington Golden Saber 124gr +P in my Beretta Px4 Storm. They're not too expensive and are listed in the top five 'one-shot stop' rounds in the book Stopping Power. I think it's rating is about 88% one-shot stops, the Fereal Hydrashock is about 92% and is listed as #1. I learned a lot from that book. I highly recommend it.
It is to be observed that Right of Self-Defence, arises directly and immediately from the Care of our own Preservation, which Nature recommends to every one. . . , and that this right is so primary, that it cannot be denied on the basis that it is not "expressly set forth.
