9mil Ammo

Just wanted to get a general idea on the kind of ammo the 9mil owners have in thier glocks. No flame wars on this please. Enquiring minds want to know.

I use Blazer 115gr ammo, they go $10 a box for 50 rd.

and

I also use UMC by Remington 250 rd value pack, but my local dealer doesn't stock enough of them, and they go "VERY" fast.

Range ammo or defensive ammo?

In my ammo drawer I have:
Golden Sabre
Hornady Critical Defense
Hornady Zombie ammo (hey you never know)
Gold Dot +P

Gold Dots are what I'm most comfortable with. All the ammo I have will put holes in a person. I'm sure they would all stop a person with the right shot placement. But Gold Dot is what I prefer to carry because its powerful, reliable, tested and not too expensive.

G19 = Gold Dot 124gr
G26 = Gold Dot 124gr +p

I also like Rem Golden Sabers.

For range work, I roll my own, including coated lead bullets...

In 9mm, I like the Remington Golden Saber.

Range ammo is either Wallymart or Underwood.

I'm trying not to start a caliber war, but 9mil - 9/1000th of an inch - is way too small of a bullet.
