    Ammo vs Ammo??

    Since PP Ammo (read that as Social Ammo) is in short supply and I have a ton of Cor-Bon DPX in all calibers and do not have access to the Hornady Critical Defense at all, I must go with what I have. I will note that Hornady, Cor-Bon and others now have some new projectiles that are doing very well in testing in Apples to Apples comparasions between them. The market is very rich with excellent performing rounds available for all of us. It is just what you can get your hands on in quanity and what will function in your gun.

    Give them both a shot. (Pun intended) ;)

    Having fired many different brands and types of ammo through various brands and types of firearms I have discovered that every gun has a specific "brand/type" of ammunition that it seems to "prefer". I use the Hornady Critical Defense rounds in my carry gun, but I would recommend that you try both of them and see which one "feels" and "performs" better in your firearm. Besides, this will provide you with plenty of "range time" to get more familiar with your firearm and more accurate in your shooting in general. And in the end a great bullet won't make up for a poor shooter. A bullets Penetration and Expansion won't make a lick of difference if it doesn't hit the target, or if your afraid to fire it.

    I generally prefer heavier bullets but given your two choices, the Critical Defense is what I would choose. The 147gr WWB JHP is not a consistent expander compared to premium self defense ammo. I recommend looking at a mid-heavy Speer Gold Dot or Federal HST load.
