a bit too late to be picking ammo. get what you can . hollow or FMJ . you wont use in this pandemic.
You'd take that over a .125 grain Winchester Defender .357 magnum?
You lost me here hoss!
I was just stating that, 'Load,' is what I would choose, IF I were carrying a 9mil out the door...!
OP, did you get some carry Ammo?
I'm just sporting with you. He didn't list your preferred load as an option.
Since I'm self quarantined, I would pick a 12 Gauge with No. 4 Buckshot or 5.56 MM FMJ. Since carrying is not a issue here with open carry legal, I would pick a CZ 97b with a .45 caliber bullet. Hollow point's preferred, but not mandatory.
Alright. Guess I didn't have my 'sporting brain' on today man...! Mind must be on Toilet Paper or somethin!
And I surely would take the 357 mag, over the piddlin 9mm.
I didn't think my choice of ammo for the 9mil, would be on the top favorites list. Never is. I guess cause it 'don't open instantly,' and look like a copper flower. It does get great penetration though! Ha. I am truly a minority I guess, that does not care for the HST...
I was able to get some:
- American Eagle 9mm Luger 124 Grain (FMJ)
- Hornady Critical Defense 9 mm Luger 115 Grain
- Hornady Black Handgun Ammunition 124 Grain
- SIG SAUER Elite V-Crown 9 mm 124 Grain
Still waiting to see if Basspro will fulfill some of my other orders, but they keep sending me your order is delayed emails.
Can you make this a poll? Possibly add a few more choices too? Thanks.

When all of this panic buying settles down, you can use https://ammoseek.com/ to see what is available.
If I had a choice Gold Dot or Ranger T, either one, today what you can get even ball 115 you waited a tad to long I fear.
Fix & Feed in Quinlan has some premium s/d ammo and proud of it.
What are your thoughts on Black Hills Honey Badger? Opinions?
I have HST 150 for my G43.
When I got my double stack 1911 I got 1000 rounds of Black Hills 200 hp with it and it worked perfectly I will say if its you only option do it, Times have changed lately some cant be picky that did not prepare.
I've never seen, purchased or shot Black Hills ammo but I've only read good things about their product.
The 124gr+P HST is a very good round. In my G26 I am at 1165fps. I have 100% confidence it that round delivered @ 3 per second.
And you and I still remain good friends, and the hunts and ranch are still open to you, despite this! LOL!
Amigo, just not a fan of HST... Can't do it. It's lonely out here with this 'unpopular opinion,' but I'll get through it. Ha! Just have not seen anything yet, that would convince me of the penetration potential of this bullet in "real world" media, and not just jello and denim. Appears to open to quickly on target, when encountering hard objects such as bone and other things, he's already open. It will take some convincing for me at this point... I still believe the Rangers/PDX1's, are the best choice between the two...
But again, Man I am happy for all you HST fans... HA. Well, still at 3 seconds, for 7rds of 230gr PDX1's 45acp. I'm slowing down fred! Maybe I do need to come on over to the HST's.
From your list I would buy any of the Hornady but my first choice would be Speer Gold Dots.
