    I keep enough 124gr 9mm +P HST around to fill my spare mags and then some. I don't figure that I would ever choose to carry 115/125gr FMJ over these rounds, but as has been said before - ball>empty.

    I load my gun and back up magazine with PowRBall and 124 grain
    FMJ and alternate them through the magazines.
    This eliminates the need for different ammo in a back up mag .IMO

    I have identical ammo in the mags for each weapon, respectively.
    This also applies if I change bullet weight or ammo brand. That way I know what is in there.
    Normally carry 155gr. Rangers in my .40, and 230gr. +P Corbon in my 1911.
