    .40 Carry\SD Ammo for a Glock 23?

    I'm a gun newb and recently got my LTCH and a brand spankin new Glock 23 that I love. So what do you guys carry for 23 ammo?

    From what I can tell Speer Gold Dots in 155/165 and Federal HST in 155/165 are the way to go.

    I've shot some Speer Gold Dot 155 but was going to buy some Federals online to try them.

    Thanks,

    FG12351

    i have a .40 cal taurus and i carry Federal HST 165 gr in mine. if your gun will feed all of the above...i can't see why you'd pick one over the other...it seems to be personal preference.

    I carry a Hi Power, no, not a High Point, off duty in .40 and my preferred ammo is the 180 Grain fodder.

    I like it over the 155/165 Grain stuff because it seems to give me much less "muzzle flip" and makes follow-up shots quicker. The recoil sensation is more of a "push" as oppossed to the "roll" or "flip" that the lighter loads give.

    With that said, it's really hard to find a bad load in a .40 cal, so I'm not as "picky" about what I shoot/carry in it.

    our local PD carry Remington GoldenSabre in 180 grain - I have heard great things about Gold Dot in 180 and 165.

    I carry Remington Golden Saber 165 grain rounds in my G23. I really like the Golden Saber line. Everything I have seen says the bullets perform very well and the powder they use in them produces no muzzle flash. I don't know how they do that but, I have shot the G23 (and my wife carries the same in her XD .40 sub compact) on a dark indoor range and I have never seen any hint of muzzle flash. That can be pretty important in a self defense shoot in low or no light for maintaing your night vision.

    180 grain Winchester Rangers is what I carry in my XD 40 subcompact. Have been great so far and did well in my homemade water jug test; expanding from .40 to .91.

    My G23 likes everything from 135gr Corbon to 180gr Ranger. I don't feel undergunned with any jhp in .40 S&W.

    I recommend the 180 grain JHP of your choice.

    My G23 has happily shot everything I put through it over the years but my SD load has always been 180gr HydraShok.

    I keep 180 Gr. Gold Dots in my M&P 40C. I tried the 155 and 165 gr. but prefer the 180. It's a personal preference and what shoots the best out of your gun.
