    Glock 23 .40 S&W 165 grn Gold dots
    Don't own a 10mm, but would like to. The .45s are currently for target, but plan on getting the Colt worked on. Then I would probably carry Gold dots as well.

    I love it. Great shooting, very controllable, and very accurate. The only down side is not many places carry ammo for it. So have to buy over the internet. Or this might just get me into reloading. If you ever get up to Southwest Missouri let me know and you are more then welcome to try it out.

    I carry 180gr. .40 cal Speer gold dots in both my mags. I've toyed around with 165gr. in a variety of brands but shoot tighter groups and enjoy the 180 more.

    I have used 165 and 180 gr. Gold Dots for my .40 S&W USP's. I'm now carrying 200 gr Hornady XTP from Double Tap. It hits at 500 Ft-Lbs. After reading some of the FBI data, I'm an advocate of a heavier bullet.
