I use 124gr Speer Gold Dot that I hand load for carry purposes.  Haven't had to put them into anybody yet, so can't speak on their effectiveness first hand, but they shoot nice out of all my 9mm pistols.

Wow you guys are way more into what self defense loads you Carry  than I am. Everything I have is less than five years old. I couldnít tell you what is in my gun right now. It could be anyone of several  brands I  have bought. I take them out of the box and dump them into a ammo box all together.

My only criteria is they function in my gun and hit the target.


I guess a lot depends on your own situation. I live in my own house with only my wife and all my walls are 1x 3 fir with sheet rock over that including the ceilings.

But I think you should do what makes you happy .   Carry on.

I like the Federal 150g micro HST or the Winchester Ranger T-series 147g .  The later Ranger t-series i believe are still  law enforcement or military only thou.    My info is based off the lucky gunner test found here.    https://www.luckygunner.com/labs/self-defense-ammo-ballistic-tests/#9mm

One final thought is to buy extra and run them through your gun and magazines to make sure they feed without problems.  I shoot 2-3 mags as fast as I can pull the trigger with fairly loose grip which seems to be worst case as far as reliability goes.

The shape and length of some hollow points can cause feeeding issues in some gun/magazines.

I used to run 115's, I now run 147Gr Jhp from Sig. They shoot extremely well out of a Sig P365XL. I ran 100 of them through mine when I got it. flawless performance

I only carry Speer Gold Dot for concealed carry. Used to be 230 grain when I carried a .45, now its 124 grain for my 9mm. There are newer options but the GD has a proven record of working well.

Personally, I think if you go with any quality ammo itís the Ford, Chevy, Dodge argument. To me the two most important factors are shot placement and does your gun cycle the ammo, think follow up shots. As a first responder I have seen what various calibers do to the human body. Really, itís about shot placement. If the first one doesnít drop them you need follow ups. Fine motor skills go out the door in SHTF situations, so really multiple shots are highly likely.

I enjoy watching Paul Harrell. He is a great resource. Every video is packed with valuable info. His meat target breakdowns are excellent and eye opening. You be the judge...

I appreciate his no nonsense videos.
