Sage advice there.

I've heard the Glaser Blue is good stuff. I've feed it to a P220 in the past. Ran fine. Haven't tried it in my USP yet. Shot placement is everything anyway, from a .22 to a 10mm.

I've been thinking it over and I think it's best to go with Federal unobtanium 124gr. HP's.

My first choice in 9mm defensive ammo is the Winchester Ranger 127 grain T Series +P+.

Black Talons and Ranger's in any caliber ! There are so many though, Federal HST's are very nice as well. Perfect expansion and with sharp petals like a peeled banana ! Winchester PDX-1 Bonded, Gold Dots, Corbon, Hornady XTP's, so many that I like. I have them all !! I collect ammo more than the guns I think ??

Rangers seem to be the popular choice. The 127gr +P+ that's been mentioned several times is one of the nastiest 9mm rounds on the market, but it's not for everyone...and it's not ideal for a lightweight pocket gun.

All of the HP staples (Ranger, Gold Dot, HydraShok, Golden Saber) are pretty outstanding. 115gr will work fine for most situations. 124-127gr is sort of the "standard" for 9mm defense. And 147gr has no shortage of fans as well. It's all about what you like.

I keep 127gr +P+ Rangers loaded in my CZ 75b and 115gr +P+ Gold Dots for my 9mm carbine. Those Gold Dots really fly. But I've got a little of everything...different weights, brands, standard pressure, etc.

I like corbon 115 +P DPX and my HKP2sk eats it well.Just my .02 cents.

I'm a "heavy bullet " guy, so I recommend the 147 gr Gold Dots or Federal HST . They expand reliably , penetrate well and have less muzzle flip than +p rounds.
