    I am testing Hornady Critical Defense ammo in my PM9. Am satisfied thus far.

    I have ran Federal EFMJ and found it works quite well in my E9 and so far in my newer MK9 it works great. As far as group size it stays with in 4" out to 15 yards when shooting at speed. Seems that my E9 & MK9 prefer Federal HST 147 & 124 non +P and EFMJ 124 +P group size is with in my preferance and recoil mild also tested all three loads in water jugs for expansion and all did quite well.

    Unless I had a gun that just wouldn't feed JHP's, I would use a quality JHP over the EFMJ.

    HST's, Rangers, and Gold Dots all function reliably and are as accurate as anything else in my PM9. Of course, you'll have to figure out by trial and error what is going to be reliable out of your gun, but those would be good places to start.

    Here's some good info on self-defense ammo.
