Best bullet weight for Sig 2022 40S&W

Hello everybody.
Just picked up a 2022 and have been looking around at different ammo.
I'm seeing the 165 and 180g rounds are pretty common.
Anything in particular shoot best in the 2022?
I was going to pick up a case of ammo, and wanted some input first.
Am leaning towards 180g.
Mostly just need it for target practice.
Thanks!

I've had great luck with Federal. Personally I would stock up on their American Eagle 180 Grain FMJ's and a box of 180 Grain HST for SD and HD.

Here is a great price on HST

Federal Tactical HST 40 cal 180gr P40HST1

Congrats on the gun!

I generally prefer the 165gr for my shooting.

If you really want to fine-tune defensive ability: 180 gr. for winter months (heavy garments to steam through), and lighter (155 & 135) for summertime miscreants. I am not a big fan of the 135 as being a tad too light should it encounter any resistance along its flight path. Would say that the 165's would be a good middle "ground round." Good Luck.
