Default What's your favorite ammo for your SR?

My SR 40 absolutely loves this ammo above all else. Even keyholes the bullseye. This is 6 seconds 10 rounds from 20 ft. I compared to Hornady 180 gr jhp, those simply do not group as well.

It's always a good thing when you find ammo that your gun loves above the others. There si no best maker. Some are cleaner than other but it's really up to the gun what it likes best. And that's what you should feed it.

My SR9c will run anything efficiently but Winchester White Box. I like to use Federal ball ammo. For self defense I have Hornady Critical Defense in it now. I have shot one box, and the gun handled it well, and shot accurately.
A bad day at the range is better then a good day on the job!

I shoot just plain Jane Remington hollow points in my SR9. I haven't ever had a problem with them and they seem to group good to me.

Mine shoots just about anything...I have 2 new mags so that brings me to 7 for both the LC & the SR. I keep two loaded in the Go bag with a rotation of SD rounds. I'm in the process of testing different ones to decide what I will buy the most of in the future...

I like my hand loads. As noted above my SR9 and SR45 both take have taken whatever I have put into them.
