All this is great advice and I couldn't agree more.Buy at least one box ( preferably more) of each kind of SD ammo you are considering. Shoot them all and determine which one cycles the most reliably and is accurate. Then use that.
Don't get hung up on some prosecutor or lawyer picking apart the ammo you use. It's off the shelf self defense ammo. You bought it for self defense. You're talking about your life here. Using inferior ammo to protect life is stupid. Period. And I would like to see some evidence of one single case where an otherwise good shoot resulted in a conviction or judgement against someone in a self defense case because of what type of ammo you were using. I'll wait.
SIG Sauer VCrown or Elite Performance 115gr or 124gr, Federal HST or Hi-Shok. Underwood Extreme Defender. Are but a few. But you need to shoot at least 2 mags rapid fire, to make sure your gun will eat them for dinner. Never trust ammunition or firearms you don't personally fire. Firearms are all the same but all very different. 147 grain for your home defense gun.Hi Guys
