    Here's the .40S&W poll

    I mean, there's one for 9mm and .45ACP, might as well make another one.

    The 155 gr is dead on at 25 yards and group well in my P94 so thats what I use. The heavier bullets tend to open up.

    I load 165 and 180 grain FMJ and JHP rounds for competition and practice but use Winchester Ranger 155 Gr. JHP's when carrying.

    I don't want to be hit by any of them. If not for the litigation potential I would load some 165 Gr. Zero JHP's for carry purposes. I do have some loaded hot for carry in the woods where I expect any shots required to be a bit beyond 15 yards.

    They all seem to hit within an acceptable zone at 15 yards. Typicaly POA to 2" above POA bullet/powder charge dependant.

    230 for .45acp
    165 for .40 cal.s&w
    and
    147 for 9mm

    all federal hst ammo, i believe the 165 in .40cal has great penetration.it didnt show a 40cal,but here is a pic of a federal hst 147gr 9mm covering a nickle

    I use Winchester white box 165g for target, and Fed Premium Tactical 180g for defense.

    edited to fix WWB. Sorry, wrong caliber

    I have had best results at the range with 165gr, but for home defense I currently have 180gr hollow-points.
