What rounds do you carry for selfdefense? why?
It is by far one of the most accurate loads out there. Just recently switched to it from Hornady TAP 155gr. The double tap 135gr is a bit louder than the hornady but oh well.
I carry what load from this list works best in my G23.
Currently, it's the Winchester 180 gr. Ranger T-Series
Im not very familiar with that company. Is that like someone that reloads? Or what? They seem to have higher velocities than normal. Tell me about them
Is that round legal everywhere? (for civilians)
It's legal as long as you can own hollowpoint ammunition where you live.
If I recall correctly, the person that started the company was a member here that started offering hot loads in 10mm and then expanded to other calibers. Most of his loads are faster and more powerful than any "factory" load, yet still within specs.
winchester Ranger T, 180 gr. and Federal HST, 160 gr. both work well with my G27 and G23.
Win 165 gr PDX-1.
Winchester 180gr PDX1. It't the new FBI duty ammo and I've been extremely happy with it. JMO
Back in my .40sw days, anything reputable in 180gr: Gold Dot, HST, Ranger, Golden Saber, etc.
Those 155gr and 165gr loads are hot stuff. Too much "snap" on the recoil while offering nothing in performance IMO.
165 or 180 Ranger T or HST
180 Gold Dot or Saber
155gr federal hst
165gr Ranger T
Because that's what I have.
Currently Speer Gold Dot 165gr for my 23.
I like Hornady 155gr HP/XTP over 8.0 gr of Longshot in R-P brass and Federal primers.
I carry Federal 165gr HST. As for a reason? I'll let you know if I ever have to shoot someone.
I carry a mixture of old Win 180gr BT and Fed 135gr Hydra-Shok.
