They won't be the best performing bullet, but almost any JHP is preferable to full metal jacket for self defense, one big advantage would be the ability to use the FMJ for practice, it should be a cheaper substitute for practice if you don't reload.

I have used only the Gold Dots for some time now. I just picked up a box of the 155gr Rangers a week ago. So far, I like them a lot also. Pretty impressive. I generally load up with 165gr for SD, but could only get the 155gr.

winchester 180gr JHP is comparable to Hornady 180gr XTP. XTP is better quality.

both have small diameter cavity for 40sw but have positive feeding. the Winchester has a deeper cavity than the XTP. wasnt impressed with the jacket seperation. but got several boxes of Hornady bullets that were less than what I expect to get for price I paid.



Remington JHP and GSHP have good cavity so does GoldDots. big wont clog as bad with clothe or paper and fail to expand unlike XTP/Win JHP. its a design for more penetration.



each design has a ideal speed push it faster it may expand and pancake flat or seperate.

can get less or more penetration which can create or minimize damage to items behind the target. to slow and might as well use FMJ. 40sw FMJ is not as bad a penetrator as some other calibers but as the bullet and load varies so will it perform.

Doc, so good to see you posting here. Welcome. As I was reading this thread I was going to post, but to be honest, I don't know why I bother anymore. I was surprised to see that familiar list of ammo here, and even more so when I saw it was posted by you.



To the members here, please pay attention to this man. He knows what he is talking about.
