    Hornaday makes some 69grain for the 1:9.

    I myself would have no problem using the 62grain Tula HP for half the price. In a self defence situation the close proximity will negate any variation in accuracy.

    However if I had my pick of ammo regardless of price it would be something much heavier/longer like a 75grain Hornaday of some sort of hollow point or ballistic tip.
