    Mas, do you have an opinion on is the 180 Grain short barrel ammo is actually better out of a Glock 27?

    Or should I consider switching to 165 grain Gold Dots?

    I tend to think I want the better penetration from the heavier bullet.

    What ammo would you recommend for SD for a Glock 27?

    Don't have any feedback on 180 grain short barrel loads.

    I personally prefer a 165 grain at nominal 1140 fps or 155 grain at 1200 for a short .40, or for that matter a longer one.
