I am torn on what ammo to carry. I need to cycle out my carry loads and I am looking at the following for the next magazine fill. Gun to be carried will be a gen 3 Glock 19:
9bple 115gr +p+
Critical Defense 115gr
Critical Duty 135gr +p
Remington HTP 115gr
Hornady XTP 124gr +p

On a side note, what are everyone's thoughts on the CorBon Pow'r Ball 100gr +p and the Hydrashok 124gr +p+??

I'm partial to Federal's 9BPLE. It's the old (or maybe still is) Border Patrol issue load and has been effective. The powder has enough anti flash additive that you won't blind yourself when it's dark out too.

It's available for $0.30 a round at SGAmmo: http://www.sgammo.com/site_search?populate=9BPLE

Add all those rounds that you currently own to your end of world/zombie long term storage stash.

Then you go buy some good ammo.

Speer Gold Dot 124+P (in 50 round boxes from LEO dealers)
Federal HST 147 (in 50 round boxes from LEO dealers)
Federal HST 124+P (in 50 round boxes from LEO dealers)

Of the rounds you listed, the only two rounds I would actually load in my gun for defensive use are 9BPLE and Critical Duty 135.

Speed Gold Dot 124 gr

Federal HST 124 gr

I bought 1,000 rounds of the Federal here: SG Ammo

I can't use the +P in my wife's Walther CCP (gas blowback system doesn't like the extra pressure), so I've got all regular pressure that cycles well in every potential gun: S&W, G19, G17, Beretta 92, and CCP.

Skip buying carry Ammo in 20 round boxes for crazy prices. Get 1,000 rounds at a good price (and the linked example of $380/1,000 is a GOOD price) and then you can be certain that your gun/magazine/Ammo combination works flawlessly by shooting a couple hundred rounds.

Any reason you don't like the majority of the rounds I listed? The HST is a fantastic round, but very hard to find locally.

I can't see myself spending almost 400 bucks on hollowpoints. I just had a box shipped from SGAmmo with 50 rounds of 9bple for 15 bucks...

Your call.

But I think it odd that you're searching for boutique ammunition, looking for the highest performance, and not caring about any sort of reliability test with that Ammo.

So, you plan to trust your life to a single box of ammunition, that you just bought...

But you don't know if it works in your gun?

What did you spend on the gun? A few hundred dollars? Several hundred? Why? Did you want a good one? Reliable one?

But verifying the ammunition performance in that gun isn't worth half the cost of a new gun?

If you're serious about defending yourself with a carry gun, be certain that your ammo choice works, in that gun, with the magazines you'll be carrying.

Further, change out your carry ammo periodically. Put fresh ammo in your magazines and carry that. Don't just load and carry the same box forever. Chamfering a single round over and over can cause reliability issues. Old carry Ammo becomes part of your practice ammo.

Research here. Then find a reliable one for your gun.

I wouldn't choose any that you listed. Federal HST, Speer Gold Dot, and Barnes TAC-XPD are my choices.

Currently have HST 124gr. in my G19 and 150gr. Micro in my G43
