I feed mine whatever I have on hand and it's typically WWB or Federal Champion or reloads. The reloads I would use are not taylored to any specific gun but mid loaded range ammo ment to work in any gun in that caliber.

Usually I likes to creep around the joint a bit, wait for the homeowners to leave or go to sleep yo. I gots me a tool for slipping in between the sliding damn door thing the locks on those be weak as a first stretch yard bird. Its wrapped in old newspaper so its quiet and sh*t, a slick POP and I be up in your crib goin' thru you stuff.

Now iffin' it gets harey and mister public be waking up, I gots me a Glock .40 with some nasty hollowpoints that shoot thru schools yo. Word this thing for real. Keeps them heads down while I make my exit with the goods.....

Oh, snap, you are Mister Public and worrying about what to use on me? My bad dog, I thinks you should vote democratic and give up them guns yo. Peoples be getting hurt with them.

Actually Winchester Ranger Hollowpoints. +P, 230 grain. Expands like an 8 pointed star and will definitely make you think twice about coming my way.
