I like Winchester PDX1's in 230 gr. They have amazing expansion and retention. These are expensive but well worth it.

I use the Remington Golden Saber 230 gr, both my Kimber's like them. They come 25 in a box and are very reasonably price. There is plenty of self defense ammo out there, just use what your gun likes.

I'm in the Golden Saber camp for 45ACP and my 38 Super likes the Silver Tips.
