Favorite SD ammo?
I just went to academy and picked up a white box of Winchester 230 fmj for target practice and on a spur of the moment, a box of PDX1's so I can have some SD ammo. What is yalls preferred SD for your 1911? Whether just at home or when you carry? I looked at the Hydra-Shock but just wanted something cheaper until I researched it more

Honestly I have some HP's but don't even remember exactly what they are ( my stuff is kept in plastic ammo boxes) BUT I figure any piece of 230gr projectile will do what I need it to do :) In other words I don't worry about "special" ammo & I suspect neither will the dum sumbeech that MAKES me shoot him will either ;)

Ive got different brands,

Remington Golden Sabre 230g
Speer Gold Dot 230g
Federal Hydroshok 230g
Winchester PDX1 230g

But im a Hornady guy, at the moment my 1911 is loaded with Hornady TAP 230g

How do the PDX1's preform to the TAP? I like the TAP in my AR over the PDX1's due to the heavier grain

PDX1 or Gold dot for me depending what gun I am carrying
