Glocks can handle powerful ammo, but the most powerful is not necessarily the best. It's up to the individual to test various rounds to guarantee complete gun/ammo reliability then select the one that provides the best accuracy consistent with penetration, expansion, and shooting characteristics requirements.
I've got a number of premium JHP self-defense rounds and I do have favorites, but when the weather gets warmer I'm going to make it a point to test them all for accuracy from a rest instead of a standing position. I'm sure all the rounds I own are capable of completing the task but I want to settle on one or two going forward.
