I'm currently using Gold Dot 147's, but only because I couldn't find the 124 +P's. I will probably switch this spring when I order more ammo.

Whichever one I can get on target repeatedly the fastest.....
Currently normal strength HSTs do fine.

I currently use Sig V Crown 124 grain. I found and article online some time ago and all of the research that had been done showed it to perform best in the parimeters of the FBI. I have been looking for it since that day. Anyhow it was highly recommended based on penitration, cavitation and velocity.

Living in the PRM, I don't have an EDC, but my HD ammo of choice is Federal HST 124gr.

I use Federal LE HST 124gr. Their American Eagle 124gr. is almost a perfect match for the round, so I use that for target/training. I like having a defense round that I can pair with a regular target round for training. In .40 S&W I use Gold Dot LE 180gr and their Lawman 180gr. target ammo for the same affect.
