    I don't have an LCP but I've been looking at the LCR as a BUG.

    I don't know about SD ammo, but I like good quality FMj for plinking.

    Plinking-Winchester, Independence FMJs (whatever you can find). For now, carry ammo is Federal Hydrashocks until I can find some Hornady Critical Defense.

    Critical Defense gets about 10" penetration - just short of the FBI 12" minimum. Thus, I alternate that with a FMJ-Flat Point. The CD expands, the FMJ-FP penetrates.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    For plinking, any FMJ rounds will do.

    For self defense, I purchased some Cor Bon 90 gr. JHP's, but had issues chambering the initial round. Seems the slide would always lock back while trying to put one in the chamber. Anyone else have this problem with their LCP's and Cor Bon JHP rounds? Got some Hornady Critical Defense on back order for two months.

    Cor-Bon would not reliably feed for me, I'm guessing mine did not care for the flat nosed rounds. Hornady Critical Defense has been flawless.

    <500 rounds through mine though, maybe the Cor-Bon would run better after it is better broken in?

    +1, thats my defense load too.

    I personally worry about over penetration with the ball though. The ballistics I've seen for the .380 FMJ was over 16" in ballistic gel.
