I have a Bond Arms .45 acp with a 3 inch barrel. I can't decide which round would be best for self defense (of coarse) between the 230 gr. Hydra-Shok, 165 gr. Hydra-Shok, or 230 gr. Hard Ball. I believe that within 10-15 ft. that there will be little to none loss of velocity. The re-coil is no problem, it's a real sweet shooter. Help Please!
Never start a fight, but always finish one.
