We spent half the day at the range today. While I was there I was thinking about my carry ammo.
I carry 124gr golddots in my glock 19. I would have bought the same in +p but I cant find them around here. I would have to order them online.

I pay $20 per 50rds at my local gun store. Anybody think it its woth the trouble to order +p ???
I am surpised how fast you can fire 15rds in to a paper plate 10ydrs away. I though it might be a little harder with +p. Today I ran through some mags of +p+ and I really didnt notice a much difference with the Glock.

We did notice good bit more muzzel flip with my wifes sub xd-9 thou.
But anyway what do you guys think about +p???

I use Rem Golden Saber +P in my XD9 Service. I do not notice very much difference between them and WWB. I keep them for a bit more penetration over standard 9mm.

In most calibers its not really important, but in .38 I want +P and in 9mm I want +P+.

I have been looking for something like that. Besides Doubletap, are there other options?

Winchester RA45TP-- 230gr bonded Ranger Talon +P, from the LE only line.

I have half a box of it on me right now, actually...

I don't think it is necessary. But fun to shoot from time to time.

I run Georgia Arms +P 124 gr gold dots through my G19. $35/100. They are hot (1240 fps out of my G19), but no controllability issues.


BTW, $20 / 50 rds is a heck of a deal from a local shop for Speer gold dots.
