    I'm just curious. What is your fav ammo? Regardless of caliber, which load (defensive and/practice) would you say is your favorite?

    My preferred ammo is the 230g Hornady TAP or the Custom .45acp

    I'd have to agree. That's my carry round. I'm really liking the speer gold dots though....good expansion

    I really like Blazer Brass 9mm and Remington UMC .45acp for the range and for carry I use the Hornady Critical Defense .45 and Speer gold dot 9mm. If I am dressing light with not much room for a holster, ill throw my little .25 in my pocket loaded with WWB.

    Winchester PDX1 or Ranger SXT. They are my main rounds both on and off duty. I have some others such as critical defense, but the Winchesters are my favorites.

    I'm gonna try to find all of this ammo to see what my g26 and 27 like. I'm planning to do a lot of tests. All I have been carrying is Federal and Hornady CD.

    That looks very nice. I'll have to pull out the kimber. I haven't shot it in almost a year.

    For carry I like Speer Gold Dot hollow points in 147gr for 9mm and 230gr for .45ACP. As for the range/plinking I like Winchester White Box, Speer Lawman, and Magtech for 9mm and for .45ACP I like Magtech and Speer Lawman. I mainly shoot Magtech and Winchester White Box, but I do enjoy Speer Lawman every once in a while.

    I like Federal HST. I have in my 9mm's, 40S&W & .45ACPs. If they made it in .380, would have it there also.

    So much to choose from.

    Guns don't kill people, bullets do.

    I don't carry, but I do a lot of plinking and hunting. I always use Federal ammo from Walmart. It is inexpensive and quality is consistent. Their bulk rimfire cycles well in my autos and is plenty accurate for me. My family and I have harvested many deer with their regular Power Shoks in 243, 30-30, 308, 270 and 30-06. These centerfire cartridges group well and perform as designed.
