I usually buy Remington Golden Sabers or Federal Hydra-Shoks, but for no particular reason. I normally carry .38 +Ps in a snubnose and my wife carries a Sig P232 .380.

How about you guys?

That is some seriously good shooting ammo that many people know nothing about. [The FMJ part I don't agree with tho] I have 1K of that along with a K of reg MFS and it is as accurate as most expensive target ammo. Freeky. Clean as heck also.

Fed +P JHP.

I read some good things about them and bought some 5 years ago and got a good deal.
I tried them with a varity of targets to see the results, they will do the job as well if not better than others I tried.
I think the ones available now are probably just as good.
Link Posted: 3/19/2006 4:43:52 PM EDT
The old Black Talons are an obsolete design. It's not even close to Winchester's current best (The Ranger-T). The over-the-counter Winchester SXT rounds aren't so impressive.

Gold Dots, Federal Tactical and Ranger Ts are all much better.

600 rounds of 9mm gold dots, about about 300 rounds of winchester white box personal protection (cheapest PD ammo I've seen). $11/box of 50 at Wally World. I am waiting to test it though.

They're about the same price as Gold Dots here..

I'm curious, too.

I have some of both, and I think the Hydrashoks look like better ammo. I dunno.

The Hydrashoks have been outdated for some time now.

Gold Dots are superior to the Hydrashoks and any of the "LE Only" ammo is a tad better than Gold Dots. Win. Rangers, Federal HST, etc. are tops.

.45 ->Hornady 200gr TAP or 230gr Rem Golden Sabre

The best ammo to use is what ever you can hit your target with.
A hit between the eyes with the old FMJ/ball ammo will put them down a lot faster than a hit to the arm with the latest "modern new fangled super killer bullet".

FWW. I carry following ammo in my pistols:

9mm - Federal 115gr JHP a.k.a. Federal 9BP
9mm+P - Remington 115 gr JHP
38 Special - Federal 125gr JHP Nyclad a.k.a Chief Special
38 Sepcial +P - Winchester 158gr lead SWHP +P
45ACP - Federal 185gr JHP or Federal 230gr Hydrashok

These ammos were chosen because they were all reliable in my pistols and accurate. They are all JHP design mostly to prevent over peneration of FMJ/ball ammo design.

They expand more reliably and remain intact better as well.

Don't have a choice in the matter. Gold Dots, 12 Gauge Federal buck and Remington 55gr .223 softpoint are issue, that that's all I can use.

Just so happens it's good ammo anyway.
