Default Most reliable ammo for Hi Point C9(no haters please)

I carry a G.I. but for fun I play with the Hi Point. It has a steady diet of range fmj's & Corbon Powrball ammo. I'm curious of what other PREMIUM ammo I can try without hating myself for buying. I know each Hi point is different but I'd like to know the next best candidate to mess with including grain size & which to avoid. If not provided in the poll feel free to name others.

My cousin's hi point 45 fundamentally refuses to feed hollow points, so I recommended Pow'r ball ammo you already use because of the round nose profile.

But if its just a range gun I would probably just feed it Wally world white box FMJs.

The only 357 magnum to me is the Ruger Security Six!!

What works the best, is that which works the best. Try different loads and make your choice.

Can't add much to what has already been said. If its just a range gun start with the cheapest loads and work your way up until you get 100% reliability. Best thing is to keep it simple, every bullet will punch a hole in paper.

It establishes some rights of the individual as unalienable and which consequently, no majority has a right to deprive them of." (Albert Gallatin of the New York Historical Society, October 7, 1789)

"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government." - George Washington
