great recommendations. you need a bullet to support your defensive load. to practice, competition, and small game hunting. I really like the Berry's plated 40 cal flat point. come in a box of 1K. with a little work you can get it shooting to the same point of aim your defensive load is. you can tell from the slide that the Sig has gone thru a lot of bullets. I am one my sixth box of Berry's bullets. the defensive loads are too expensive to shoot a lot of. I do like to shoot though.
