Hornady Custom 9mm, 147 Grains, JHP/XTP or Speer Gold Dot 147-Grain Hollow Point. The gun is a glock 19. Thanks

Speer GDs are my normal carry in 9mm. However, I personally use the 124gr +Ps, but the 147 is also a good load.

In 9mm I prefer the lighter loadings, 115 or 124. I currently use Federal 124 gr. Tactical and Federal 115 gr. +P+ HST.
I've had the Hornady 147 gr. XTP's fail to expand in a water test from 7 yds. granted not a scientific test by any means.

Could you recommand a place to get the gold dots 124gr. I know cheaperthandirt.com has them for $14 for a box of 20. Is this a common price is or is there a good place to get them? Thanks

I'm issued Winchester 147gr., Ranger, SXT for our 9mm's.

That's what I carry because they're free.

I carry the 147gr Gold Dot im my Glock 19.

IMO the 9mm is dependant on velocity to compensate for its *lower* power.
having said that, i would recommend the Remington Golden Sabre 124gr +P or Speer 124gr+P Gold Dot cartridge. . . if you are able to obtain them, the Winchester 127gr Ranger+P+ is arguably the best 9mm loading..
all three of those rounds have an efficient feed profile and enough velocity to expand even after punching through heavy layers of winter clothing.
Don't forget about Cor-Bons 115gr+P

My carry ammo is 124+P Speer GoldDots. Velocity is what makes hollowpoints work, might as well have more of it.

The 147 grain GDs have a much deeper hollow point than the 124s in order to expand under the lower velocity.

If your gun doesn't push the 124 grain GDs above 1,100 fps (such as in a snubby CCW piece), I wouldn't trust them to expand reliably. IMO.

He sells on the board and has great prices as well as a great reputation. Emial him about what you want and where to ship them and he'll email you back with a total price with shipping included.

Edited to add if you want gold dots email or IM Wave here on the board.

I agree on both points!! I carry Ranger SXT 165gr in .40, and Ranger SXT 127gr +p+ in 9mm. I bought my Ranger ammo from Jerry.....He's a great guy to work with.

Horady xtp or speer gold dots in 124gr work well and I have them in my carry gun.
Link Posted: 2/19/2006 6:18:38 AM EST
Rem GS or Speer GD's in 124 gr +p are what I like.
Link Posted: 2/20/2006 3:43:31 PM EST
+1 for Corbon. Stuff is great!

Federal HST in 230 grain.

Link Posted: 2/26/2006 5:05:56 PM EST
I know its not on your list, but I 2nd or 3rd or what ever it may fall the Fed. HST... Its what I carry..
Link Posted: 3/1/2006 3:44:04 PM EST
Gold dots.
Link Posted: 3/1/2006 3:48:58 PM EST
ide definatly use Ranger +P's they gonna bite hard and the celocity helps

there are also some good +p+ rounds its all in your taster some guys prefer a mid weight bullets while i use a 127 grian +p+ serious knowck down power

also look into Quik Shok and MAgteck defense round

gold dots are also very good

just my .02 cents its all in what you prefer and more importantly what you can shoot shot placment is everything
