Hi, Mas. I live way out in the country away from major cities. So my access to premium handgun ammo is non-existant except by traveling over 50 miles or by internet. My local country store only carries W-W USA JHP white box ammo. I know that this is economy ammo, but is this ammo adequate for personal protection. I am particularly interested in 9mm, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP. I usually carry Hornady Critical Defense if I can get it. Thanks for feedback.
