    Some like light and fast, some like slow and heavy, what say you?

    I like 165-180gr myself.

    A well-designed 180gr hollowpoint. I used to carry 165gr T-series and didn't mind ...

    If I had to choose just one, I'd go with 180gr too. 165's come in second.

    I like my 165 gr stuff. I like the 180 gr stuff too.

    The 155 and 165 gr loads shoot flat enough in my G35 that sometimes it seems more like a carbine than a handgun. I love setting up on the 100 yard line and ringing steel with almost no hold over.

    155gr. Hornaday TAP for me. It`s the best I`ve found for my 23. I practice with the 180gr. Blazer Brass and 3 times a year empty a mag. of carry ammo and am always happy with the tight group with the TAP.

    165 HST for me but I also like 180gr for winter months
     
  7. 180s seem to be more accurate in my G23. I carry 180gr HST.

    180gr gold dot HP is the best. I've seen a single round make a canoe out of a guys head.

    I've run 165 and 180 though my G22 and find that I prefer the 180. It just "feels" better.

    Just loaded up some 180 XTP's. Shot great out of my 23. I was impressed and intend to keep loading them.
