Fiocchi Extrema XTP. Great bullet and the ammo is not too expensive for proving reliability.

Thats my favorite load for my 9 and 40. 124gr +p and 180gr. + 1 on the winchester pdx1. Very accurate and clean, cycles flawless no flash and its bonded. I also like speer gold dots, either 1 you cant go wrong.

I love Fiocchi's ammunition. My 16 gauge shotgun loves their ammunition too, and ironically enough it prefers the low brass ammunition, which Fiocchi makes, as apposed to higher brass ammunition like Federal.
