    Need assitance for an off duty ammo for Glock 27 40 cal

    I am new to this site and found it searching but I need some insight. I have been reading Ranger T. Whats a good off duty round to carry for Off Duty in my 40 cal. I loved the Black talon but finally ran out, Input is appreciated.

    Hi Coastie,

    The choice (IMP) depends on the barrel length/velocity factor. Are you packing a full size piece, or a compact?

    BTW I assume you are , or was in the CG?

    Coastie welcome

    I am not sure whether Speer does .40 flavors because i do not use that cal but I am a fan of GD's. CorBon too probably would be a very viable choice.

    I am not up to speed yet on the EFMJ options but that would seem too to be well worth consideration.

    Hi Coastie,
    I carry .40 S&W in an HK USP. I have used Gold Dot 165 gr. in the past. Everyone I come in contact with seems to think very highly of them. However, I have recently started to use Double Tap. I started with 180 gr. and now use a newer 200 gr. with a Hornady XTP bullet. These rounds go at 1100 FPS and deliver 538 ft.-lbs. from a 4.5" barrel.

    Here's a link: www.doubletapammo.com

    Nope we are carrying the Sig 40 in the CG now. This is primarily for off duty as a Deputy Sheriff and ocasional back up weapon. Thanks Its its the Glock 27 (Baby Glock as we call it)

    Coastie,

    My thoughts are higher velocity round with the shorter tubes like the G27. I personaly have had a lot of good experience with Corbon stuff. They are handling the Glaser Safety Slug and the velocity is smookin to say the least!

    The Ranger T is the evolution from the Black Talon design, and is available to non-LE. If you like the Black Talon and shot it well, then you may want to give this a try. Ammolab evaluations of the Ranger T found it to be very consistent, particularly in the larger calibers.

    Speer Gold Dot is widely used by LE, very consistent and a solid performer in everything from 9mm to .45acp.

    Double Tap is well worth a look, too.

    I would choose a 165gr load.

    If I had to buy my own .40 S&W ammo for self defense, I'd try Double Tap's loads in almost any bullet weight or 165 grain Winchester Ranger-T.

    My agency issues Speer Gold Dot 165 grain JHPs which is supposed to be an excellent load as well.

    +1 on the doubletaps. I use their 165 gr in my HK P2000SK (about the same size as a G27). They've got some serious punch to them and are designed for shorter barrels.
