I keep mine loaded with Federal HST 230gr +p. I've tested them quite a bit and have had good results. Weight retention is amazing.

I have the Winchester Bonded PDX1 230gr JHP's. I was impressed with their performance when I did some ballistic testing for the now dead ".45 Kings" thread.

Nice penetration and excellent expansion.

Ok, so Federal HST gets the vote from most of you?

I carry Hornady critical defense 185gr. I like the idea of the pre-filled JHP because heavy clothing effects it less. It also has low flash powder so shooting in dark areas wont blind you. They feed perfect in my Kimber.

What ever is on sale. IMHO, with correct round placement and follow up, they all do just about what they were designed to do, but you wanted opinions.

If I had to choose though, for me it would be Speer 230 Gold dots and Federal HST 230+ P.

Default SD ammo

The newer Ranger ammo is the same round as the ol'e Black Tallon, it just doesen't have the black coating on the bullet as the tallon's did, great SD ammo if you can get & find it as of Sept. 09 winchester's new policy is that they will only sell their ammo to LEO only which I think sucks, I have a few boxes bought before that time I carry only fed HST ammo in my carry gun's great stuff.

I now carry Winchester Ranger "T" Series ammo (Talon). It is labeled LE only, but you can find it if you search online.
