    Which 9mm ammo?

    Ok looking for input on following question need to purchase a couple of boxes of EDC defensive ammo. Looking at 9mm Remington Golden Saber 124gr. +P HP or 9mm Remington Golden Saber 147gr. HP planning to carry in my Sig P250. Or someone have another brand or recommendation completely. Not really worried about cost just want to know hopefully getting some of the best stuff out there in 9mm.


    Dont want have to use it but if I do want the best if my life or family on the line.

    If you got a LEO friend, get the Winchester Ranger line of ammo. It is the Talon without the special lube. See the guy over at Patriot Depot, he sells via Internet to anyone. There are other suppliers also.

    I prefer either Speer Gold Got 147g or Federal HST 147g. I have also been testing the hornady critical defense 115g ammo and so far I like it. I've also heard that Speer Gold Dot 124g +p is a great choice. Winchester Ranger and Winchester talon are popular but seems they arent quite as popular as they use to be. From what I understand they are still fine choices however.

    I agree with Rollo.
    I prefer The HST 147 or 124 gr. but if unavailable I would go with the Gold Dot also, for me either the 124, 124+p or 147gr.
    I think most modern hp ammo is pretty good, but if you can get the HST they really rock!!!!!

    Speer 124 HP +P. A very good 9mm choice.

    I use the Remington Golden Sabre 124 gr 9mm + p. I have not had to "use it" although I ran some through my Glock 19 just to make sure it goes bang. I had my paws on some Gold Dots but the Golden Sabre was the same price for 5 rounds more. I've heard good things about it but cannot compare it to the others. Where I'm at I pretty much have to wait for a gun show to drift into town to get some SD ammo. Yes I know I could order online, but luckily I've got one in the pipe and two 15 round magazines full so I've been concentrating on finding practice ammo. The most important thing is to find some that functions flawlessly through your weapon.

    he didnt ask what ammo to use, hes asked which one.

    anyway go with the 124+P and your GTG!

    I love the Federal HST rounds in all calibers, I am wanting some in 9mm but can't locate them. I would want the 124gr over the 147 gr but would take either, these HST rounds are very impressive!!! Right now I am packing Speer Gold Dots +P 124 gr and am happy with them, but would replace with HST in a heart beat!!

    Your choices are both good, but what does your gun like?

    I use the Speer 124gr +p Gold Dots for my 9mm and the180gr and 230gr Gold Dots for my .40 and .45 too.

    When you care to send the best, choose GD.
