Ammo for g26

Guys I currently have a g19 gen4 I use 124 gr fmj on range and 124gr Speer gold dot +p jhp as my personal defense round. I have ordered a g 26 gen 4 as my non winter carry and I would like your opinions. How does the g26 handle the above rounds as far as handling or should I scale back to the 115g fmj for range and not use a +p round for defense. Also I would be interested in you personal defense round in your g26

When I used to CCW the G26, I used the Gold Dot 124 +P, just as I did (and do) in my G19s. All Glock 9mms are designed for 9mm NATO, which has greater pressure than standard 9mms, and about the same as 9mm +P.

So no problems.

I use Gold Dot 124 gr in my G26 Gen4.

For range use...the 115gr is giving me inconsistent results...
So I am ordering a bunch of 124gr Speer Lawman ammo for range use.

My G26 has functioned better with 124gr than with 115!

The standard pressure Federal 147gr. HST has been my 9mm carry load for a few years now.Functions flawlessly in my G26/G17.

Your G26 can handle all 9mm factory loads including NATO and +P+.

Some people here have reported shooting the G26 better than larger 9mm Glocks and I have to guess that at least a few have found this with +p and +p+ rounds.

My 26 shoots a steady diet of Speer GD 124 gr +p.

GD 124 +P in the 19 and 26 (as well as the Beretta 92, S&W 39, Kel Tec P-11). All eat the GD 124 +P without a hiccup--the Kel Tec is a little snappy with them, but the 26 is just as controllable as the 19 with them.

Recoil Springs are Cheap

I shoot nothing but 124/127 +P/+P+ for carry and practice.
Like shooting with the same thing I'm going to carry.
Or at least the same weight and power.

My gun is a G27 with a Storm Lake 40-9mm barrel.
So I'm thinking I can run HOT HOT HOT 9mm day and night.
All Glocks are designed to run hot NATO ammo anyway.
Any G26/G19 should be able to run endlessly on the hottest 9mm.

I'm thinking I may have to replace my recoil springs a little more often. That's all.

For Defense:
Winchester Ranger T-Series 127 gr +P+
or
Speer GDHP 124 +P
Either round is great stuff.

My G27, with a G23 Storm Lake 40-9mm conversion barrel,
has a big time crush on GDHPs. So that's what I prefer to carry.

Yep. Beats Critical Defense in the weak 115g loads by a LONG shot.

I run 147gr GD in all my 9mms. I like the recoil and they work as well or better than lighter loads for more reliable aggregate penetration IMO. I'm a heavy-for-caliber fan. I'd be fine w/ 124gr +p.
