    I have a difficult time trying to decide between 124+p gold dots or 147 gr. The heavier the bullet the better the penetration but they do travel pretty slow. 124+p seems like a "happy medium" just as the Glock 19 is to me. Goldylocks and the three bears stands out.(This one is just right)

    Range ammo is Federal American Eagle 115-grain FMJ or Remington UMC 115-grain FMJ. Occasionally, Winchester White Box. I love that stuff, too.

    For defensive carry, I almost always load only Federal HST 124-grain +P. I love that stuff. Accurate, powerful...I think it has upped the ante for defensive 9mm ammunition. I respect Gold Dot and Winchester 127 grain +P+ and would have no problem carrying those, but I voluntarily choose to stick with the HST because I trust the Federal brand with my life.

    Occasionally, I will load out Federal 9BPLE 115-grain +P+. I have a large stock and it is such a street-proven round, it's hard not put it in my G19's magazines sometimes. A super-accurate 115 grain JHP at 1300FPS? What's not to like?

    Blazer for practice, IDPA and USPSA. A few years back shot over 10,000 rounds of it and it still shot better than I did.

    Personal protection ammo is another story. Currently carrying 124 Bonded PDX1, before that Gold Dots but would consider any of the following OK if the price was right:

    Speer Gold Dots
    Federal HST
    Winchester Ranger T
    Winchester PDX1
    Cor-Bon DPX (very pricy)

    I tell my students to buy the cheap stuff to practice (it will probably shoot better than you can) and buy the good stuff for more serious work.

    I'll post a third vote for Federal 9BPLE, or even 9BP. It has a good track record, reliable shape for feeding and cheap enough to train with.

    I have switched to CorBon DPX in all of my handguns. Expensive but worth it in my humble opinion.

    I really like these newer, better designed hollow points in the 9mm! I carry Barnes 115 +P TAC-XPs and Federal 147 +P HST. I also like the Buffalo Bore +P+ 124gr Penetrator for woods carry. I think of a pistol as a "handheld Drill"...put a bullet all the way through a skull or spine and you take care of "most" problems.! The 9mm has been doing that since it was first developed...now we have even better rounds.

    I reload all my range stuff. For carry, it's Speer Gold Dots when I can find them. Either 115/124gr. If I can't get these, Federal HST, Hydra Shok.
