    personal protection, What ever soft point ammo you can by will do. Your not shooting long distance so the perfect bullet weight is not important.

    With a fast twist like the 1:7, you cant go wrong with a heavier bullet. I dont think that a 55g bullet would be a good choice. I have a 1:9 twist and right now im using 77g blackhills HP, they would work even better in your rifle.

    I've used the hornady zombie max ammo, that stuff expands very well and also feeds pretty easily.

    Never Forget.

    Here's one I found more comical than informative. All I found with ballistic gel.
