    Going to seriously buck the trend here, I carry 200gr soft cast HP in my 1911 with just enough Clays to push them at 850fps. About 10" penetration and they look like a quarter when they stop.

    230 gr. .45 ACP Winchester Ranger T +P's and lot's of them, They do work.
    I have also carried Corbon Pow'r'balls but switched to the talons since they have a longer track record.

    I've carried Federal Premium HST, and Hornady Critical Defense FTX (both in .45). I like the federal, taken a few small animals with them and they certainly did the trick.

    I carry the Hornady now because I've bought into the idea that the little plastic/rubber inserts help deal with clothing. dunno how true it is, but as I said, I've bought into it non-the-less.

    SIGMA SW9VE - 15 Hydrashocks 147 grain. Used to carry Hornady Critical Defense 115's. Switched to the Federals about a year ago.

    Both seem like a good round, just wanted a change...

    I carry Hornady Critical Defense for my .357mag.
    What sort of man would put a known criminal in charge of a major branch of government? Apart from, say, the average voter.

    I believe in freedom, Mr. Lipwig. Not many people do, although they will, of course, protest otherwise. And no practical definition of freedom would be complete without the freedom to take the consequences. Indeed, it is the freedom upon which all the others are based.

    The freedom to succeed goes hand in hand with the freedom to fail. - Going Postal, Terry Pratchett

    Cor-Bon 160gr DPX in my Bersa 45ACP. From the test and reviews believe it will do the job.

    I used to carry my Sig Sauer P220 for years. In the recent years I have been carrying a FNH FiveseveN. I buy very expensive ammunition for carrying. Elite Ammunitions 28 grain copper trident PFP (Pre fragmented Projectile) These will fragment into four pieces with impact of soft tissue.

    I have Federal 9mm 115gr JHP +P+ 9BPLE and Remington Golden Saber 9mm 124gr +P, I tried to sell the federal but never got a good offer so I carry it, figure at 1300+ fps it's bound to expand.
