    What do you pocket rocket owners carry in self defense ammo?
    The only hollowpoints I can find locally are the discontinued 125gr Bonded hollow point Golden Sabres?

    Also, what FMJ is loaded hot/weak for for practice? My local wal-mart only carries WWB 125 gr. Haven`t shot it yet.

    Corbon DPX 125 for carry.

    Any fmj (all I've seen is 125) I can find for practice.

    147gr Hornady XTP. Thats my newest load. Also have 124 XTPs. Make sure the bullet has a cannelure under the crimp. I carried gold dots until I (luckily) noticed bullet set back. Never had a problem with the XTPs, the crimp holds great. This is unfortunate because i love gold dots.
    I am a heavy for caliber guy so i was thrilled to find the 147s. Bonded sabers are great. I wish I could find some in this caliber.
    The pearce +2 was a must for me. It added alot of versatility.
    Sweet gun, sweet cartridge.
    Also +1 on what Dreamaster said

    Any reputable factory ammo is fine. May be harder to find a good price in .357 sig, but if you look long enough, they're out there.

    Speer Gold Dots (125 gr.) for SD. PMC Starfires 125 Gr. for range (same poa as GD's). If your range is lead-free, speer lawman 125 gr. -- advertised as same poa for leo's carrying .357 sig. I doubt you'll see any of this stuff at wally world. You can check with Lone Wolf for a conversion 9mm barrel for the 33 -- I have one and only use for range, so I didn't change extractors. You will need 9mm mags, though. If .40 is available, a LW or Glock 27 barrel will drop right in, and your .357 mags will work.
