Bought my first Kimber. I feel somewhat spoiled being 22, and purchasing such a fine firearm But, I was wondering what the general consensus would be pertaining to self defense loads. I purchased a box of Hornady CD 185 grain. I'm of the opinion that penetration is slightly over-rated, as I'd rather have more expansion and quicker energy dump. Less risk of over penetration and hitting an unintended target. I've watched Massad Ayoob's 1990 video, and he goes into more depth with this scenario. What do you guys favor in terms of adequate defensive loads?
