My personal opinion is Winchester Ranger T-series 165gr. JHP's at 1,140 fps. Good luck finding them though!

I used to use 135gr CorBon @ 1300+ fps but recently switched to my handloads of 155gr Hornady XTP. I can get identical velocities and feel with my practice handloads of 155gr hard cast lead semi wadcutters as the XTP's which allows me to practice a bit cheaper but still be familiar and comfortable with the defensive rounds.

Gold Dots are pretty much as good as it gets. Anything bonded is gonna work very well. Double taps, Buffalo Bore, I think they both use Speer GD bullets. I think someone mentioned the PDX1. I believe that is bonded as well. That's a Hornady load if Memory serves. I think Hornady amke those Zombie Max as well. Don't let the cheesy name fool you. But if you search a bit, you should be able to save some money, especially if you're willing to buy 500 or so.

Then again being just fresh out of the law enforcement academy and shooting for around 10 years, I'm pretty used to firing from the hip on a quick draw. Now for home defense I've got a 12 gauge loaded with 00 Buck next to my bed.

The problem with FMJ is that they over penetrate quite a lot and can easily hit bystanders past your target still with lethal velocity. That's one of the main reasons police use JHPs.

That just means more points for over penetration right? Lol

The best round is one that goes bang and hits its mark.

I like the Critical Duty round in .40. Penetration is sufficient through all barriers in the "FBI protocol" test, and the rubberized tip prevents clogging of the hollow point cavity as well. The expansion isn't HST impressive, but all things considered CD is the better round in my opinion.

Federal HST, Winchester Ranger T-Series, or Speer Gold Dot.

Any of those three will do nicely. I'm partial to the Federal and Winchester loads, especially the 165 grain weight.

I am partial to Fed and Win ammo, also.
