For target practice or self-defense?
Range ammo I use Winchester white box. Cheap and dirty.
Defense ammo Hornaday critical defense or critical duty.

Agreed on both! - Hornady Critical Defense 115gr makes a great self defense round

A few guys on this forum buy bulk ammunition online and probably have a better choice for range ammo.

I use Federal HST 124gr. $20/50rds SGAmmo.

For practice I use Federal AE 124gr. Federal had some great rebates through December. I picked up another case (1k rds) for $140 delivered after Rebate.

For the range I get Federal Champion FMJ, 115gr locally by the case. And at $189.00 it beats most mail order places. Plus no waiting on shipping and the dealer is 10 minutes away. It has performed great in my Kimber and two Sigs.

After shooting several different self defense loads, I've settled on Liberty Civil Defense 50gr HP. I like the low recoil and low carry weight and high power.

You should try several loads to find out what your gun likes best ...they're all different ... especially with hollow point ammo.

Defence 147 grain Federal HST, Range, Great Lakes Ammo Remanufactured or Freedom Munitions Remanufactured. Both are top notch.

Just got a 9mm Pro CDP and I have used the Winchester and Remington 115gr FMJ and have no problems at the range and we both carry Critical Defense.

For range ammo I shoot nothing but Freedom Munitions reloads. I like 147 gr. in 9mm for breaking in new guns. For SD ammo, you'll have try different brands to see what your gun likes, they can all be different and they have the final say, LOL.
