    all of those are respected sd rounds. i know it might be kind of hard to do right now with all the shortages and stuff but try them all. see what is reliable and what you shoot most accurately with and then go with that.

    It might be a good idea to check with the manufacture that the pistol is capable of firing high pressure rounds without damaging the barrel. This would be any 9mm ammo with -p.

    Often gun retailers are not knowledgeable. This information is not usually not found in technical specifications.

    Contact the manufacturer for best advice.

    I replied to your survey.

    Federal HST-147 + P

    If you can find it.

    Look around locally.

    It can be found on the INTERNET but you will pay about $12.00/50 just for shipping.

    I shoot Speer GDHP +P 124 gr in the following

    Taurus 24/7 Pro DS
    Taurus Millenium Pro
    Glock 19

    The run good in all three, they have a good reputation and they chrono witihin 10 fps of what the manufacturer says they do.

    Lastly I can purchase 50 rd boxes of them for less than 30 bucks each.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Any one of the rounds on that list would do the job if put in the right place.

    I shoot a .45 but my wife shoots a 9mm. She runs CorBon DPX 115g +P. You didnt have CorBon in your poll.
