    Wink New from Mi

    Hi all! I just recently became a gunowner once again. Years ago, my favorite gun in my collection was a .357 S&W model 686. Then the babies came and the guns were sold. I now own a Springfield XDM 9mm and will be working towards obtaining my cpl. Ive been researching which rounds to use for home defense and am interested in what ammunition you all have found to be your favorite for concealed carry/home defense. Also if any of you own an 9mm xdm, what you ammo you have found to be most accurate?
    Thank you in advance.
    Tammy

    Welcome from Wisconsin, Tammy! I use Speer Gold Dots in .40 cal or Federal Tactical HST. I imagine they'd be just as good in 9MM & in an XDM. My favorite practice round is American Eagle FMJ.

    Welcome from Fort Worth, Texas.

    For range ammo I use Remington UMC 9mm 115g FMJ. I buy the 250 round box usually from Walmart for about $62.
