Hi folks, well after hearing a couple negatives about Hornaday ammo & reading thru our AMMO EFFECTIVENESS thread, I guess it's not that great as I was told by my local shop, anyways with those listed in the chart what would be the best overall defense ammo for a m&p 40c....thank you in advance
Hello all, I'm here to engage in polite and respectful conversation. Just left a very nasty forum where they like to TALK about GLOCK.
Youtube is full of ballistic testing. Search is sometimes harder for the .40's. I'm not a fan of the 9mm Hornady with the plastic inserts. I do like the Custom or American Gunner in the 124+P. Nothing really sticks in my mind for Hornady in .40. I like the Liberty Civil Defense.
Probably a good bet is Federal Hydra Shock, or the HST.
Ammo brand likes and dislikes will give you the same "factual" info as asking is a 380acp good enough for self defense?....Is a 9mm acceptable instead of a 45 cal? Personal preference is a manner of opinion and nothing else. I use hollow point SD ammo, but a ball cartridge , used for years and years...used in the military and civilian police for decades, killed or saved many lives prior to all this fancy different hollow point ammo came out. I do not think there is one particular brand you will find that is 100% a choice for every person owing a firearm.
I also would not base my sole decision on a gelatin test result, there are many factors to consider when making a decision, on what to load up with.
