    I won't recommend anything for "ultimate stopping power" but my 24/7 Pro is loaded with Remington Golden Saber 230 grain BJHP. It handles this ammo well. For practice I load up with WWB 230 grain FMJ which the gun also handles well.

    Carry ammo that you will trust your life too is YOUR decision. You must choose what feeds reliably and you are most accurate with consistently.

    Doesnt matter what others recommend if it doesnt work in your gun and you aint putting shots where they count.
    I am consistently on record and will continue to be on record as opposing concealed carry.

    the reason im asking is becuase i know certain guns operate better with X type of ammo. im a new shooter so i dont want to be wasting money on ammo that is going to cause issues if i really need it.

    You won't know until you try it jaidedeye. What works in my gun might not be so good in yours. Unfortunately it does cost a few bucks to experiment.

    +1 for carrying what works in your gun.

    While looking for ammo that works in your 24/7 keep in mind that Taurus recommends 230 gr with a velocity of 835 fps. This recommendation does not get leave you much room to choose a lot of self defense ammo. Muzzle energy only calculates to about 356 ft lbs. This recommendation is the main reason I chose to go with the 9mm 24/7, since Taurus recomends up to +p ammo for it with energy above 410 ft lbs.

    I shoot Speer GDHP +P 124 grain in my 24/7 and have had good results. They chrono at about 1210 ft per second and 403 ft lbs of energy, only 10 fps less than what Speer lists on their website.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.
