    Fiocchi makes a pretty good HP, so does Magtech. Just wanted to toss a couple unlisted names out there.

    Really most any will do what you want it to. I advise people to try a bunch of them. See what their gun likes to shoot best. Most guns I've ever fired have an ammo preference. Some guns no matter how good the ammo is supposed to be don't like to feed it and that makes it an unreliable round in my book. So try a bunch of them. See what not only feeds well but groups well. slug weight, the powder, the shape of the slug all play a part. Some guns like a hotter load while another gun might be too hot and it just flies all over the place. Once you find the one your gun(s) like the most that is the best ammo around. At least for you.

    Any hollowpoint that feeds reliably and shoots to POA suits me fine.

    Currently using Federal 147gr HydraShok. Switched from the 124gr HydraShoks a couple of years ago. More mass on target and the drop in muzzle velocity (by comparison) is insignificant, IMO, within 75 feet (expected max engagement range).

    I shoot max distance outdoors as most indoor facilities are 50 feet or less. At 50 or less I can place my shots easily. At 75 I can too, as long as I am slow and deliberate. Still, situation dependant, I would opt for 50 or closer if circumstances permitted. Farther than 75 feet/25 yards is generally the tactical province of something with more than 4" of barrel.

    Whatever premium ammo is on sale. I can't find any locally, so last time around I had to order from ammo to go. I ordered Rangers for the XD and GoldDots for the G36 because they were the cheaper ones at the time.

    I prefer Hydra Shoks but it's sometimes difficult to justify the cost compared to other hollow points that may work as well.

    I Was using Federal Hydra Shock for all my carry needs. On duty, at home or concealed. I did make a switch to Extreme Shock EPR and AFR rounds.

    Where do you get these? It was my understanding that they have not been produced for several years.

    does anyone shoot 9mm Hornady 124gr XTP's for SD ammo? I have run a bunch of 147gr hydra-shok's through my XD9sc with no problems, but I picked up a couple boxes of the Hornady the other day as it was cheaper. Figured it couldn't hurt to try it.

    I just bought a couple boxes of the WInchester Bonded PDX1 ammo 45ACP 230gr. I figure if is is good enough for FBI requirements it's good anough for me. From what I've read about them they are supposed to be pretty good. I haven't had a chance to try it out on any "real" targets yet but I plan on some water jugs and maybe making a homemade balistic gel block and see that these to to that.

    Buffalo Bore ammo has appealed to me ever since I shot their 10mm loads. Turns out most of their loads are very hot yet accurate. There are drawbacks: recoil and flash are definitely amplified, but I think one will be hard-pressed to find a more powerful factory load.

    [Edit]: Hrm, I just noticed this was a poll for BULLETS. Still, most Buffalo Bore rounds in calibers I use are supersonic so I am not so concerned about lack of expansion.

    I use the Hornady bullet since it seems to be a favorite of law enforcement.

    I currently use Cor-Bon DPX 115g +P. The only reason is that's all they had. Sure was hard to fork over $35 for 20 rounds though. Normally, I go with the Speers in either 147g or 124g +P.
