Got a new PF-9 this week, what's your favorite carry ammo?
Gold Dot short barrel:
Gold Dot or HST!
CorBon 115 gr JHP.
HST and Golden Sabers.
Remington 115 grn JHP from wally world
can afford to practice with them and carry them.
Our Wally World doesn't stock those or any other inexpensive JHP that I could use for both the range and carry so I'm kind of stuck running FMJ at the range and JHP for carry only. They have lots of inexpensive 9mm FMJ options but as far as continually available JHP/carry ammo Federal Premium is the only option (they do have Winchester White Box JHP off and on but do not continually...could be someone is snapping it up as soon as it's in stock before I see it too).
I've been carrying the Federal Premium 135gr Personal Defense Hydra•Shok Low Recoil in my G43 (Glock's single-stack 9mm) and I'm thinking I'll just stick with this for my new PF-9 too and keep things simple.
Just beginning the carry business.
My pf9 hates wwb stuff. No issues with other ‘target’ loads.
I use the 115 grain WWB JHP for my Hi Point 995, makes a great one-shot varmint stopper...
This test is always a fun read though for a large-scale JHP comparison:
Thanks for the tip, I think I read this somewhere else too and I'll keep it in mind.
I don't care what the Hi-Point Haters say those carbines are totally legit and I'm tempted to get one every time I visit a Rural King (they seem to be a major retailer for Hi-Point). They have a ton of good reviews on YouTube.
Thanks for the JHP comparison, I have not seen this before and it's a very good resource.
Speer Gold Dot Short Barrel, Double Tap 80gr TAC-XP. Both work well out of my gun. Love the HSTs in my 45acp, probably would work well in 9mm too, (not sure about the short barrel PF9).
Thanks for the reply Jamie.
I just picked up some Hornady Critical Defense to try out.
Thanks for the reply and please let me know how well it runs in your PF-9 if you can. It's kind of expensive to run/test hollow point "carry quality" ammo (at least I think it is...could be I'm just cheap) so the more data I have the better.
Critical defense feeds better than any of them in my pf9. My taurus pt111 merely tolerates it.
Edited to add: my hi-point will shoot anything.
Thanks for the feedback, I appreciate it. I don't own any Hi-Point products but if I did I would get alot of their gear to annoy gun snobs at the range, gun shows, etc.
You know...I have never bought any of their gear, but after looking at what they have to offer (thanks to your link), I think that I need a new hat. Even their hat prices are great .
I got a new Kel-Tec hat last week. Wore it to my favorite gun shop and ordered a P-11. I'm hoping it arrives today.
