What is the best ammo to use for a glock 23
For practice: American Eagle, Speer Lawman, Winchester USA
For PD: Federal Premium, Speer Gold Dots, Winchester Premium, Cor-Bon
This is similar to asking which is the best automobile manufacturer..
For practice, I buy the cheapest stuff I can find which usually is cci blazer.
For SD, I buy the cheapest stuff I can find from the name brand premiums: Federal HST, Speer Gold Dot, Remington Golden Saber, etc.. this usually is the HST.
I'm with the "bigger is usually better" crew and for .40 would recommend the 180gr for both applications.
I like magtech and speer lawman,the cheap walmart federal stuff is very inconsistant it will always fire but they fly all over the target
Fly all over the target?
Me thinks it's not the ammo causing the hits to be all over the target.
I like the kind that goes BANG every time, myself. That said, it's usually whatever WallyWorld had in stock when I last walked by the gun counter.
You can't go wrong with a name brand 180 grain load. Use the FMJ loads for target shooting and carry JHP loads for protection.
For plinking, just about anything for as reasonable a cost as possible.
For self defense, it depends where you live. If you live where it stays relatively warm, like me in Arizona, I suggest the Double Tap 135gr Nosler bullet load. If you live where people pack on fairly heavy clothing to stay warm, I suggest the Double Tap 165gr Golden Saber load.
Ballistics : 135gr. @ 1375fps / 567 ft/lbs- Glock 23 (4.0"bbl)
Ballistics : 165gr. @ 1200fps / 528 ft/lbs- Glock 23 (4.0"bbl)

PS - I don't suggest any 180gr 40S&W loads for SD.
My 23 shoots and cycles any ..40 ammo I stuff into it, so I practice with whatever's cheapest...including my own handloads.
For carry, any of the big name ammo that's marketed for self-defense. I carry 155 gr Federal HST's
