Same thing. Experiment a little, pick what you like.

My favorites:

FMJ: RUAG/RWS 124gr
JHP: Winchester Ranger 127gr +P+

+1

I'll second that. The gap between the major American JHP's is minimal. The best bet is to get the ammo that your handgun likes the best. A FTF would be much more detrimental to you then a loss of 1/4" penetration.

Happy Shooting

Default Sd carry ammo

To me this new critical defence is just a sales selling point In all of my carry gun's I ues either of the following brand's of ammo for SD Fed HST'S, Win Ranger, Speer GD's, Rem Gold sabor's all these ammo's have been proven in LE use over time & their result's were my deciding factor, sure there are other great brands out there for more $$$$$ like Cor - Bon, another good ammo is the Hornady XTP ammo all of the above when you see them on sale grab them, when you can?

I would give a few a try and see what your pistol likes. Personally I use Federal HSTs in my 45 and Gold Dots in my revolvers.

I use Remington Golden Sabers exclusively in all my defensive weapons, mainly for one reason--they function perfectly 100% of the time. The Golden Saber bullet is shaped very close to a hardball and feeds the same in everything I have, and I put reliability as the #1 goal in a defensive pistol.

I also use Hornady Critical Defense, both 9mm and .40. I'm sure there are others out there just as good, but I was told by an expert that it was his choice and that he thought it was the best. I'm sure other experts have their 'best', but it's my choice.
