You carry the P3AT to protect you and those you love around you.

What exact round do you carry in your particular P3-AT?

I talking brand,weight,bullet style-the whole thing.

This is the bullet that you are hoping you never have to fire but when you do,it has to do the job.

[quote author=Rubb link=1221320901/0#1 date=1221321661]When I actually owned a 3AT, this was my round.

So if I look for that exact round,I'm looking for:

Federal brand-Hydro shok

380 caliber self defense ammo

90 grn  JHP?

Obviously,I'd take it out and range fire half a box before I carried  it.

I would do my own research, practice shot placement.
Reliability should be checked with more than 10 rounds, 50 at the least IMO.

There are many opinions on the best SD round, choose yours.

I use a chronometer to measure actual performance from my weapons - Corbon 90 gr JHP is the present winner for power and reliability. I have purchased some Corbon DPX for testing, though.

I tried Buffalo Bore but had to rule it out as it's a bit much for the guns, imo.

I am currently carrying Federal Hydra-Shock 90gr JHP. From all test I have read, it has always performed at the top of the list. In the top 3. The other two were Cor Bon JHP and Remington Golden saber 102gr HPJ. In the past I have usually carried the Golden Sabers due to the heavy weight and the rounded nose for ease of functioning. They are also quite accurate. AS soon as I can find some around here I will be going back to the Golden Sabers. But until then, I do trust Federal.

I use two rounds exclusively. Corbon DPX (80 gr) and Remington Golden Sabres (102 gr). I stack them like so:

|----------------------------------|
|------barrel----Corbon DPX---|
| | Golden Sabre
| / Corbon DPX
|______Golden Sabre
Corbon DPX
Golden Sabre
Corbon DPX
Golden Sabre

I have the +1 mag extender on my in-weapon magazine so I have eight rounds in hand when the weapon clears the holster. My spare magazine (which I nearly always carry) is loaded with six Golden Sabres (no extension on the extra magazine, standard baseplate).

I have Speer Gold Dot 90 grain JHP and Remington Golden Sabers 102 grain JHP. Both cycled fine in my P-3AT. The Speer seemed to have a little more recoil. I am currently carrying the Remington because I've heard a lot of good performance reports on them but I'm comfortable with either one.
