    what ammo do you have on your carry 9mm?

    i used to have Cor-Bons but found them quite snappy even on my steel framed Kahr. i now have Federal Hydra-Shoks, not sure if they are +P's.

    massad ayoob says the best defense ammo is a 124 or 127 grain hollowpoint travelling at 1250 fps at least.

    he names the Speer Gold Dot +P and the Winchester Ranger +P+.

    do we have these in the Phils?

    oh oh.... i think you're opening a can of worms here... ;)

    anyway... there's a lot of thread on GT about this line of thread... particularly on the ammo forum. There's a lot of interesting wetpack test done by several GT'ers on that forum which might interest you. try to do a search on 'wetpack' to see what i mean.

    ok now for your question, on my G19 i personally carry Hornady 147 grain XTP JHP on 2 mags and one mag full of Hornady 124 grain XTP JHP.

    Try Federal Hydra Shok 124 gr or Federal EFMJ.

    The reason why I'm a fan of Federal Ammo is the technology they have on their commercial and military ammo. Even their American Eagle line is very accurate, especially in the .45 ACP. The 9mm American Eagle is also good. Couple that with their experience in ammunition manufacturing where Alliant Techsystems www.atk.com is the mother company of Lake City, Federal, Speer, CCI, Alliant Powder (Bullseye), Estate Cartridge and Fusion Ammo.

    Im pretty sure that PBDionisio will be at the gunshow. You better buy there as there might just be discounts.

    di ba ang 147gr 9mm yan ang tawag nila "subsonic"?

    why not 115gr dpx, its faster, plus it will penetrate, and bcos of the copper head...no fragmentation...just my .02;)
