I messed with 185gr Taurus Copper Bullets which is the Barnes DPX bullet. I liked them, had good energy, good weight retention and it good expansion. Since they don't make it anymore I started looking around and after trying some Federal HST's in my XD9 I tracked down some 230gr +ps for my XD45. I looked at the differences and decided the 230s were more of what I wanted and the HST gets HUGE!
