    Friends, your advice as to this load would be appreciated.

    My current (concealed) carry pistol is a Glock 26 and I am looking for the best defensive ammo, amidst the ones available. The two best I have found have been the Ranger (not the T series) but simply the Ranger +p+ jhp and the STANDARD PRESSURE, not +p, Gold Dot (124 gr.)

    How would you compare these? If the +p Gold Dot were available, would it differ?

    Thanks.

    From the studies I have seen, Corbon +P JHP had the highest stopping power (91%) of all JHPs tested. Time to death on goats in European tests was 8.92 seconds, right up there with the best.

    I trust Ranger 127gr +p+ SXT's and 115gr +p DPX when I can get my hands on it.

    @ $20 +/- per box of 50, the Ranger is a real bargain.

    you can get the gold dot +p at mirage technologies for under $20/50. or you can get the buffalo bore equivalent. Also, I've seen the new 9mm HST from federal in +p on dealer shelves. looks to be a real good defensive round.

    Several articles that I researched over the past year rate Federal Premium #P9HS1 124gr. Hydra-Shok JHP's as being among the very best. I use them and now I also use Cor-Bon's innovative 100gr. PowrBall 9mm +P without any problems.

    Here's a link to the PowrBall ammo:

    Here's a review by Jeff Quinn on the PowrBall ammo:

    I originally purchased the PowrBall ammo for my Kahr PM9 and it worked very well with zero FTF's and zero FTE's.

    I'm a fan of the Strausberg tests too, even though I love animals,My least favorite animal is the goat.If I ever conduct terminal ballistics test on live media, the goat would be my choice do to its cross section and bone density. Obese goats and possibly pigs would also be included in my test to represent larger subjects and subjects with an attitude.Dave

    No fancy tests...but the factory Speer 124gr. GDHP standard or +P is very hot quality ammo. Uber accurate and reliable.

    A G26 with 124Gr GoldDots is good protection.
    Put Crimson Trace laser grips on it, and you're about as good as it gets for a little bitty compact work gun like that.
    Carry a spare G17 magazine.
    Then get yourself a good can of very hot pepper spray and an Emerson knife. That's good protection.

    I use Speer God Dots 124 gr GDHP in my 26 and 19 for carry. Once in a while 147 gr. I have never had a problem

    The WWB 147gr. HP's at Wally World are still very affordable and I've never encountered any problems with them either.
