whats in your magazine when you carry?,FMJ,Hollow point,etc
im curious what everyone carries far as ammunition goes when you carry,like brand and is it FMJs,hollow point,cross cut hollows..etc?, not caliber.I myself currently have 2 mags(one i carry) full of federal ammunition FMJ rounds as my carry/practice ammo,but im thinkin of switching to hollowpoint as if a SHTF situation occures..i wanna have the most effect i can. so What do you guys carry?

Depends what I'm carrying. If I've got my 45 then it's hollow points all the way, if I've got my 380 then I use FMJ because I want all the penetration I can get. All depends on what I have in the holster.

Well my first mag is a Hollow point made by a little known company in blakley ga called gunn ammo. They've been very consistent. I was talking to the gm at my local gun show and was asking about how they expanded. He politely informed me that they don't as much expand as fragment. Well now I keep at least one mag full of them. Never had any malfunction of any such with them and I tell all my gun buds about them when they ask about ammo so that's what I use but like u redmist I'm interested in know what others use

Oh and my other mags are full of federal fmj. You know just in case bad guy thinks he can hide

I have at least 3mags for almost every pistol I have, 1 in the gun is always Remington hollow points, the other fmj what ever is the least expensive at the time. I do however do have my rock island 1911 45acp loaded with the hornady hollow points.

I shoot TulAmmo FMJ in all my guns.

I like the hollow points in my carry weapons. I have a g30 with hornady critical defense and a cw9 with winchester pdx1 in it
