Winchester PDX1 has been good for me.

I use the pdx in my hipoint c9 which is only 8 rounds but is +p rated.

Don't like using +p in my xd9sc so I just go with Remington UmC jhp.

Federal HST's are good, Winchester Rangers, or Speer Gold dots. All will get the job done. Myself, I shoot the old reliable Federal Hi-Shok. Used by law enforcement for many years. And at under $20 for a box of 50, they are cheap enough that I can afford to practice regularly with my carry load.

Same here. The Rangers are also great.

Ask the local PD what they carry. If its good enough for them, it's good enough for you.
Back in NY we carried Speer Gold Dots. Out here in NH, we carry Federal Hydra Shok. Either will get the job done.
I have read excellent articles about Hornady's new Critical DUTY line. Not to get confused with the Critical Defense line.
Ultimately, make sure that whatever you get will feed and fire correctly in your carry gun. I had to go with Critical Defense in my BUG since it was so picky with a typical hollow point not feeding well in the ramp.

I carried those for a while (off duty) but never had to use them. That's all I got about those.
