    How Many Grains?

    I don't notice any perceptible difference in recoil between 165gr and 180. I carry 180 grain and train with 165 to save money. I've already ran plenty of the 180 PDX1 through my gun to know its reliable so I'm not worried about it.

    My personal recommendation for the .40 S&W is the Speer Gold Dot 165gr or 180gr and for practice they make the Speer practice ammo in both weights with similar trajectory and recoil. Nothing against Hornady but hundreds of police agencies and actual shooting results are hard to argue with.

  4. I suggest that you carry the round that you know- in order of importance- to be 100% reliable through your gun and is the most accurate out of what shoot reliably without a failure. What brand it is really doesn't matter. If you end up with a FTF or FTE with the 'best' load available it's not gonna do you any good.
