    And was told at the time, it was the best of the best. Today I run 127 gr. +P+ Winchester Talons in the home defense G17, and for my carry G26 I run +P Hydro Shok 124 gr.

    Selecting the Duty Weapon--Is Caliber the Key?
    Is a good column on actual shootings and the effectiveness of the bullets used.

    If I was going to run a non +P bullet, Iíd run Hydro Shok 124 gr. or 147 gr. or Cor Bon 115 gr.

    AS others of have said, make sure you shoot a bunch and see what cycles in your weapon flawlesslyÖ and when you do find a round you like, by several boxes and shot it at least 100 times though your pistol before you consider it safe for use.


    Thanks for the great link to Evan M.

    I use 147 gr (non +p) Golden Sabres in both my HD (P95) and carry (G26) guns. Both guns eat them with gusto and I like the heavy bullets in 9mm, especially the Rem GS. Bad guy won't know it's not a 45.

    I like Cor-Bon DPX 115gr +p and Federal HST 147gr +p.

    Both are reliable from my weapons and accurate for me. That's a key thing that is forgotten, does your gun shoot them accurately.

    Federal HST's look to be the best thing out right now. Absolutely wicked looking.

Mas Ayoob says anything over 125 grains in 9mm is not as effective and cites many agencies who have dropped the 147, i beleive the findings with these particular rounds in real world shootings show the 124 grain to be the best penetrator and expander. I have no personal experience with 147's.
    115, 124, and even 127 grains all work.

    I've never been a fan of the 147 Grain Bullet, and remember the first time it came out. No, thank you.

    rmil: Use the Hornandy Critical Defense Amm. These have characteristics of hollow points but they are not classified as hollow points. Hence legal in NJ. The calibers they come in are 38 special 357, 380, and 9mm.

    It looks like hallow point, why do you say it isn't?

    I own a 6906, My manual says NOT to shoot +P Ammo , Because The Frame is Aluminum. The Slide is steele. I have a very early model with the hooked trigger
    guard. Good Luck and be safe.

    You just don't want a steady diet of hot loads like that. A few here or there is not going to break the gun.

    Even in the manual for my HK P30 it says +p not recommended.

    I wouldn't want to bet My Life on it. My manual does not say a few here or there, it says DO NOT USE PLUS P AMMO.
