This is getting into personal preference. After making sure the ammunition functions flawlessly in your firearm, choose the ammo that you shoot the best in your firearm.

Double Tap Ammo is hailed by a lot to be the best.

Find out what the local LEO's use and load up with the same.

It gives the prosecuting attorney and the DA heartburn.

That pretty much sums it up right there.

Yeah I agree with that. I talked the Chief of our small police force, who I went to school with said JHP with a heavy load. We like the Bonded ammo the best. Probably every one here agrees. I am satisfied with my Winchester Supreme Elite. They are a heavier load and I like that. I mainly posted this to answer his question, it takes him forever to make up his mind lol. Thanks for all the replies.
