What ammo do you guys shoot with your Glock 22's? I've already bought a couple small boxes of Federal Hydra Shoks, 135 grain. What do you guys reccomend for personal defense rounds? Range rounds?

Only new/factory ammo. No reloads or lead ammo. For SD I use Speer Gold Dots. Range ammo, Winchester White Box (WWB) 100rd packs from wal-mart, or blazer brass.

135 sounds kinda light. That is what I shoot in my 9mm. My 22 I shoot just plain and simple JHP from Winchester 165 grain.

Please don't take offense. For every answer you get expect at least one or two smart ass ones. I'm known for doing it quite often here. It's how we keep sane around here and keep the atmosphere light.

For range, I like FMJ Blazer or Winchester Whitebox or any other cheap stuff.

For carry, I like Doubletap 155g .40 cal. I've tested and researched many different options.

With Doubletap, some others seem to like 135g or 165g.

Discussions about carry ammo can be like "9mm vs. 40 cal" debates or any other religious debate.

In .40 I prefer 180gr for less felt recoil and better penetration.

Speer Gold Dots, Federal HST, and Winchester Ranger are all great SD rounds.

big +1. i have 180 HST in both my .40's. they shoot point of aim, they have low recoil, low flash (especially compared to something like 135 grain), and are generally much easier to shoot for me

Damn...I was going to say that!

But seriously, I also recommend either the Speer GD in either 155 or 165 Grain, or the 140 Cor-Bon DPX...a great new round with great terminal performance. I actually switched to them from Speer GD for now, something I never though I'd do.
