    45 Colt: Don't ask, it's a black powder load :D
    44 Mag: 305 grain (Packs a wallop)
    45 ACP: Corbon 185 grain +P (Non-DPX)

    The 45 ACP is a Revolver. As you may be able to tell, I prefer the wheelgun when I'm not at work. :D I shoot my carry ammo pretty consistantly, but admit to using the Winchester "White Box" ammo from WalMart at the indoor range. They don't like my handloads. ;) . Actually, they don't like anybodies reloads, but are more than willing to sell you a box of "over priced" ammo if you didn't bring your own factory ammo.

    There ain't nothing wrong with WWB ammo, especially the Personal protection rnds............ I have tested that stuff and found that it performs just as good, or better, as many of the exotic brands of ammo.

  3. Right now I'm using Federal American Eagle FMJ at the range, and Federal Hydra Shok JHP for carry. I'll probably be changing to Fiocchi for FMJ and JHP soon. It's great ammo at reasonable price. The best price for it is online, but you have to buy a large quantity to reduce the shipping cost. So when I need more ammo, that's what I buying.

    I currently carry Winchester Ranger Talon (LEO) ammo in my .40's (180gr in Sig & 165gr in G27) or the Hornady TAP 165gr. I have found the Winchester Ranger Talon ammo at It's not cheap but you can't put a price on protection either.

  6. Speer Gold Dot 125gr .357 sig for my Glock 32

  7. Federal Personal Defense Hydra-Shok

  8. My S&W M&P 9 Compact seems to prefer Federal HydraShok 115 gr JHP.

    The Sig P226 will "eat up" Speer Gold Dot 124 gr +P JHP just fine.

    You take the blue pill and the story ends. You wake in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill and you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes. Remember -- all I am offering is the truth, nothing more.
