    I have been using 135gr Federal Personal Defense Hydroshocks in 9mm for a Glock 26. Any reason you guys think I should switch to a lighter bullet?

    Go with the PDX1 124gr +P. I tested them with a 3 1/2 barrel (the same as your Glock). I have heard there are some expansion problems with the 147gr PDX1's due to the slower velocity. The 124gr have a muzzle speed of 1200 fps and expand nicely.

    135gr. Glaser Pow'R Ball, the hollow point that isn't.
    155gr. Triton Quik-shok,

    I carry the PDX1 in my LCP. Speer 124gr JHP (Gold Dot I think) in my PM9 and some sort of Speer JHP in my .357. I believe they are called Short Barrel Magnums. I have also carried Hornaday XTP in my .380 and tried Critical Defense but had a malfunction with it ([email protected] double feed).

    Don't fully understand your question but +p rounds are higher pressure than standard rounds, which results in more power. You have to be sure that the gun you are carrying them in can take the pressure. For example, the Ruger LCP is not rated for them, but the Kahr P380 is (and costs more than twice as much).

    Typically +p rounds are self-defense loads and some sort of Jacketed Hollow Point (JHP). PDX and XTP are both "brand names" of sort for different self defense loads. Both are basically JHPs.

    Technically there's no such thing as +P for .380 ACP. Standards have been defined for +P in other calibers, but not for .380. So it's effectively just a marketing term that means "hot ammo".

    Winchester PDX1 in 380. After hitting a pig with one I trust it in stopping a threat without a problem. Very very good expansion and tissue damage.

    Fellow Tiger fan I see!

    Are you saying that there is ammo marked "+p" for the .380, but there's no standard for what constitutes +p? I can believe that.

    I've never noticed any .380 ammo marked +p but have heard people refer to it.
