I have a split decision to choose from Speer Gold Dot 200gr +P or Federal HST 230gr +P.  The Gold Dot has been a proven round through my G30 and G21.  The HST has been through them once.





Which one?

I prefer the 230 standard velocity, but I'l go for the +P HST over the 200 GD. I don't think the 200 +P GD meets the FBI standard for penetration.



Edit: Nope. Not on the list:







  • Barnes XPB/TAC-XP 185gr HP loaded by:







    • Cor-Bon (DPX45185)





    • Taurus (TCB45ACP185HP)






  • Winchester Ranger-T 230gr JHP   (RA45T)





  • Winchester Ranger-T 230gr JHP +P   (RA45TP)





  • Federal Tactical 230gr JHP   (LE45T1)





  • Federal HST 230gr +P JHP   (P45HST1)





  • Federal HST 230gr JHP   (P45HST2)





  • Speer Gold Dot 230 gr JHP   (23966)

    Like the sausage?

    Of your two choices I'd probably run the HST. Gold Dot is what I currently run though.

    230 gr HST+P.  I carry that or Hornady TAP in 230 gr.  My gun likes heavier bullets.

    As you know HST's are impossible to find any more so I am using what I have.  I have never shot Hornady through them.



    I am curious from the FBI chart if that what it is, why the 185 Corbon is gtg and the Gold Dot with the same ballisitcs is not.  Mabe because of the ll copper design?

    No one seems to recommend the Hornady 230 JHPs.

    Why?

    The Hornady TAP 230+P JHP runs well in my XD45 and seems to be accurate.

    It's a big bullet and going kinda fast for it's size. What's not to like about that?

    I only bought the +P TAP to see if they would run in my XD so that's what I carry right now.
    Might go with the Cor-Bon DPX later, although I'm a little concerned with over penetration
    using the DPX. I read that the 165 DPX went through 15" of balistic gelatin and into the plywood back stop.
    Someone tested it and it went 1185 FPS out of a XD45 Tactical .

    Voted for Speer only because I somehow read "Hydrashok" on the other one...

    I voted for Federal HST 230 gr +P.

    Tough to find in my area or on the internet.
