I use hornady in my 9mm sd handguns. But most modern hollowpoints will give you reliable expansion at 9x19 velocities.

I also found this a while ago and thought it a very thorough and detailed article with good info on all calibers.

I did, before I relaized that I was over calibered, use Federal Hydroshock for .45acp and CorBon +P 9mm.

I shoot Golden Sabre out of my 1911 and my G26, and I shoot Gold Dots out of my G22 and XDm.
