What load do you use in your carry gun!

For my carry guns I use the Cor-Bon DPX in 45ACP 185gr.+P. It is a solid copper alloy Barnes hollow point. I have found it reliable in expansion tests and feeding.

Hornady Tap. Sometimes the 155 grain... sometimes the 180. Just depends on what I can find available

For my Glock 26 9mm, usually Winchester target rounds as I'm at the range a lot. I'll just keep pulling the trigger.

124gr. +P Speer gold dots. I've never been convinced any of the hyper jelly blasting ammo 5000™ that costs twice as much is any better.
