Default Same old "which ammo" post

I have 3 kinds of ammo to choose from for carry in my SR9c. Barring the 'which one cycles best in your gun and how accurate' responses,they all shoot well and are accurate in it. I have rangerT124+P, gold dot 124, and powerball 100+p. I love the rangerT when it expands and the gold dots are great as well. But the powerball goes like 1450fps with around 470ftlb. Also It doesnt seem like it should over penetrate puting those standing behind the BG at risk. Ive shot water jugs with all of them and the powerball gives an awesome hit and never goes thru the second jug. What do you guys think?

If it were me I would go with the Rangers or the Gold Dots, both are good rounds. I like a heavier bullet for SD over a light one. They lend themselves towards more penetration if they expands or not and I don't think over penetration will be a concern with either of them.
I'm also not a fan of powerballs at all.
If the pain is lacking so is the discipline...
