    Which .40 Ammo For New Glock 27

    Hi guys,

    Next month im going to get a new g27 and im not sure if i should carry what i carry in my g22 which is 180gr. gold dots or go with a lighter bullet.Do you guys think that id get good expansion with the 180gr. bullets out of the shorter barrel or should i go with the 155gr. loads.



    Thanks, HARDCORE

    Any of the diffrent bullet weights and designs should reliably expand. You might be more concerned with recoil controlability and fast follow up. Try some diffrent loads and see what works best/handles best/ is most accurate.

    Welcome, I was starting to think the Army guys were gonna outnumber us, but I think we're giving them a run.

    I keep saying I'm going to try Corbon DPX. It looks like some lethal, mean stuff. Their Powerball looks pretty good too, if you have feed problems, but not likely with the Glock.

    I've settled on 165 grain Gold Dots, Hydrashoks, and plan to try out Gold Dots. Works for me.

    expansion requires speed. typically i recommend a lighter, faster bullet in any shorter barrel.

    Thanks for the welcome and the replys guys. I really like the power balls for my Keltec p-3at but love the Gold dots out of my g22. I'll have to wait till i get the g27 and see what it likes best. Hopefully i'll get that w-2 soon from work and than i'll be good to go. I've been hinting on getting another 1911 to go with the Glock but the wife just gives me the look,if you know what i mean. Maybe i'll just have to settle on a case of ammo instead. LOL
    Hey jar head,Semper fi brother, were always out numbered but us Marines always stick together right ,LOL. Actually where i work theirs 7 vets in my department and 4 of us are Marines. Figure that one.

    Thanks again, HARDCORE

    1 more Marine here!

    I don't use 180grainers, I stick to 165 & 155's.

    Im not trying to be a smart ass here, but rule of thumb is whatever fits and is on sale. Anything thats brand name, factory new, jacketed and preferably expands.
    If its ever needed, I'll bet your target will never know the difference....

    The best ballistics I have EVER seen is from the Ranger SXT line.

    Hey, the marines are looking for a few good men, right? Well, you're supposed to be FEW dagnabbit...but you're good. I like the usmc (you really DON'T want to know what I think that really stands for)...ya got the prettiest uniforms (especially in the officer ranks), you're great shots and your Gunny's provide endless amusement on the History Channel! Don't complain. WE don't have anything remotely resembling R. Lee Ermey!

    I like the PowerBall load for my Glock M27 but I also load MagSafe and Hydr-Shok 165gr rds, too. I'm in South Florida, so I think the MagSafe will be effective year round. When I move out of state, I'll probably leave those to the summers only. I also have some rather unique RBCD loads for my 40. Check out their website:

    http://www.rbcd.net Look at the pics especially. These ain't cheap either, but I found some boxes at a gun show for much less than retail.

    I have a relatively new G27 also. So far, I have used 180 grain, JHPs for the carry-load and FMJ at the range.

    I guess I'm a size-chauvinist, because I use 230 grain in the G21.

    I wonder why the .40 has a flat nose, even on the FMJs. At the range, I fire some JHPs and more FMJs. With the .45s, I can easily distinguish the neatly circular JHP holes in the target from the more irregular FMJ holes. But the .40 holes are all the same...

    I wonder this also, No other Auto besides 10mm and 40 Short and Weak use a flapoint . Not even oddballs like the 400 corbon use a flatpoint ..

    I'd be intersted in finding out.
