Glock 19
9mm
Speer
Gold Dot
124 +P or 147
The local police department carry Speer. Plus, it was on this list: http://ammo.ar15.com/project/Self_De..._FAQ/index.htm

G17
9mm
Federal
124gr. +p+ jhp
Local PD offloaded a bunch of it due to some kind of warranty or pressure concerns in the S&W M&P pistols they went with recently. So, it was cheap ($20/box of 50) and I loaded up on it while the gettin' was good!

It's pretty hot stuff, but totally controllable in the glock.

I like Federal HST's.

124 +P in 9mm and I don't recall the weight in .40 cal but I think it's 155gr.

GLOCK 23: Winchester Ranger 180gr.

Xenogy 02-15-2011 02:16

G23
.40S&W
Federal
HST
180gr

I chose this ammo because of good results in tests that fit my needs best at the time. I'm planning on switching from a G26 to a G27 soon so my needs have changed a little. I'm looking at the possibility of switching to bonded ammo for carry.

G21C: Speer Gold Dot 230 grain
G33: Speer Gold Dot 125 grain and Hornady 147 grain XTP

19
9mm
124gr
Remington Golden Saber Brass Jacketed Hollowpoint.
because it has good ballistic results ....and some argue not to carry it because jacketed rounds are better...tells me they don't update their specs before posting here as they are BRASS JACKETED)

EDinFL 02-15-2011 05:08

9mm CorBon 115 gr DPX

crzn01 02-15-2011 05:13

Federal HST
165 gr

Glock 19 and 26
Winchester Ranger 127 +P+ T series (also have some SXT versions)
Was issued this as an LEO some years back (after being issued Winchester Silver Tips 115gr for years) and like the round as it has been around a while and has positive results. In the G26 it retains excellent velocity.

Glock 38 and 39
Winchester Ranger 230 grain Bonded
Frankly its the only 230 grain SD ammo I can get consistently and I prefer my 45's to be 230 grain if possible.

Wife's Glock 19 (and front door gun)
Federal HST 147 grain
She likes how it recoils and shoots it well.

JBP55 02-15-2011 05:47

Carry, G19/PM9 with 124+P HST.
Home, G21 with 230 HST+P.
Vehicle, G21/G17/G34. Same ammo.
Wife, G26/CW9. Same ammo.
I use HST/Gold Dot/Ranger T for the quality and performance they provide.

same here, except I have a gen 3 g19. I got a great deal on a case of them. I used to shoot corbon 125 gr +p, but they are way too expensive.

At the moment:

Glock 26
Hornady Custom XTP 147gr

Mudshark100 02-15-2011 06:49

G19, 9mm, Speer Gold Dot, 147 gr.
Read very good reviews on this round from several on-line forums. Recommended by a local shooter that I highly respect.

Reseach. I did a lot of research and decided that this was the load that I would go with. The reality of the situation is this. We can follow the exploits of the jello junkies or the morgue monsters and with both supplying info, hope that we have chosen the best load in the caliber of our choice. But you are not really going to know which one is the best until the time comes when you are forced to use it. So we do our homework and pray that we have gone with the best load we can buy for our carry sidearm.
