    I carry a G23 on a daily basis and I would like to know which load in the Gold Dot you would personally carry between the 165 and the 155 gr bullet weight. I know their very close in weight, but it seems that the energy level and expansion is noticeably greater in the 155 gr. It's just that the penatration is noticeably less in the 155. Is one lead more street proven than the other or is a coin toss? I'm able to obtain 50 round boxes of either for the same price. Thanks Mas

    I'd go with the 165 grain, myself. Make sure it's the full power (1140 foot-seconds) load, not the downloaded subsonic.

    best,
